Description

Handbook of Clinical Adult Genetics and Genomics: A Practice-Based Approach provides a thorough overview of genetic disorders that are commonly encountered in adult populations and supports the full translation of adult genetic and genomic modalities into clinical practice. Expert chapter authors supplement foundational knowledge with case-based strategies for the evaluation and management of genetic disorders in each organ system and specialty area. Topics discussed include employing genetic testing technologies, reporting test results, genetic counseling for adult patients, medical genetics referrals, issues of complex inheritance, gene therapy, and diagnostic and treatment criteria for developmental, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, neuropsychiatric, pulmonary issues, and much more.

Key Features

  • Employs clinical case studies to demonstrate how to evaluate, diagnosis and treat adult patients with genetic disorders
  • Offers a practical framework for establishing an adult genetics clinic, addressing infrastructure, billing, counseling, and challenges unique to adult clinical genetics
  • Features chapter contributions from authors at leading adult genetics institutions in the US and abroad

Readership

Active researchers, basic and translational scientists, clinicians, postgraduates, and students in the areas of genetics, human genomics, pathology and bioinformatics; medical students, pediatricians; internal medicine physicians and residents; genetic counselors and genetic counseling students; clinical and laboratory genetics trainees (residents and fellows); physicians and trainees of other sub-specialties (pathology, gastroenterology, oncology, endocrinology, neurology, psychiatry, immunology, hematology, rheumatology, nephrology, pulmonology, dermatology)
