Genetic Instabilities and Neurological Diseases, Second EditionEdited by
- Robert D. Wells
- Tetsuo Ashizawa
This book describes everything about DNA repeat instability and neurological disorders, covering molecular mechanisms of repeat expansion, pathogenic mechanisms, clinical phenotype, parental gender effects, genotype-phenotype correlation, and diagnostic applications of the molecular data. This updated edition provides excellent updates of these repeat expansion mutations, including the addition of many new chapters, and old chapters rewritten as extensions of the previous edition. This edition also features a CD-ROM containing all of the figures from the book. This book is an invaluable reference source for neuroscientists, geneticists, neurologists, molecular biologists, genetic counsellors and students.
Neurologists, neuroscientists, biochemists, geneticists, biophysicists, cell biologists, molecular biologists, human geneticists, pathologists, cancer researchers, tumor biologists, researchers developing standards for disease analysis, and patient advocacy groups.

Praise for the First Edition: "...this presentation provides continued incentive to contribute to understanding the molecular foundation of each unique disease with the hope of insight and new strategies for treatment." - Alan P. Wolfe, Chief, Laboratory of Molecular Embryology, National Institutes of Health "... this is not a journey, it is an odyssey! ... the Wells and Warren book is outstanding. Here, the publishers deserve a pat on the back for the layout, figures (some of which are in colour) and print quality. I simply cannot praise this book enough. My copy will be jealously guarded!" - Jamal Nasir, Department of Molecular Medicine, Western General Hospital, Edinburgh UK
