Genomics in the Clinic: A Practical Guide to Genetic Testing, Evaluation, and Counseling illustrates the current scope of the practice of genetics for healthcare professionals, so they can understand principles applicable to genetic testing and consultation. Written by an authoritative well-balanced team, including experienced clinical geneticists, genetic counselors, and medical subspecialists, this book adopts an accessible, easy-to-follow format. Sections are dedicated to basic genetic principles; clinical genetic and genomic testing; prenatal, clinical and cancer genetic diagnosis and counseling; and ethical and social implications in genomic medicine. Over 100 illustrative cases examine a range of prenatal, pediatric and adult genetic conditions and testing, putting these concepts and approaches into practice. Genomics in the Clinic: A Practical Guide to Genetic Testing, Evaluation, and Counseling is important for primary care providers, as patient care evolves in the current genomic-influenced world of precision medicine.
