Human Reproductive Genetics: Emerging Technologies and Clinical Applications presents a great reference for clinicians and researchers in reproductive medicine. Part I includes a brief background of genetics and epigenetics, probability of disease, and the different techniques that are being used today for analysis and genetic counseling. Part II focuses on the analysis of the embryo, current controversies and future concepts. Part III comprises different clinical scenarios that clinicians frequently face in practice. The increasing amount of genetic tests available and the growing information that patients handle makes this section a relevant part of the fertility treatment discussion.
Finally, Part IV concludes with the psychological aspects of genetic counseling and the role of counselor and bioethics in human reproduction.

Juan García-Velasco is Director of IVI Madrid. He is also Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Rey Juan Carlos University, Madrid, Spain, where he is Director of their Master’s Degree Programme in Human Reproduction. He graduated from University Medical School, Madrid, in 1990 and received his Obstetrics and Gynecology certification from La Paz Hospital, Madrid, in 1995. He completed his PhD in Medicine from Autonoma University, Madrid, in 1995 and from 1997 to 1998 he studied at Yale University, New Haven, CT, under a Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Fellowship. His main research interests have been in IVF and endometriosis. He is the Principal Investigator of projects funded by the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health, Spain, and has received awards from the Spanish Fertility Society, Spanish Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology. He has published over 200 peer‐reviewed articles as well as 22 book chapters on human reproduction, endometriosis and hypo‐ and hyper‐ovarian stimulation response and is the author/editor of several books.

Dr. Seli is Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences at Yale School of Medicine and Chief Scientific Officer at IVIRMA Global. He received his medical degree from the University of Istanbul and completed his Residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Yale University. His postdoctoral training included a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility as well as a research fellowship in molecular biology, both at Yale University. As a physician-scientist, his primary focus is to understand and treat infertility. His laboratory characterized the mechanisms regulating translational activation of gene expression in the oocyte. Dr. Seli and his colleagues also made seminal contributions to our understanding of oocyte and embryo competence in IVF and the potential role of non-invasive diagnostic technologies in this context. Dr. Seli is the recipient of many National Institutes of Health (NIH) and pharmaceutical industry-sponsored research grants as well as numerous awards, including the Ira and Ester Rosenwaks New Investigator Award, American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and the President’s Achievement Award from the Society for Reproductive Investigation (SRI).

"This is a wonderful first edition in a new and rapidly expanding field of human reproductive genetics. It is a useful book for its narrow-intended audience. It is an excellent resource for students, residents, and fellows. The wide range of contributors from across the globe adds to the book's fund of knowledge. I see this becoming an important resource to have in the future and I hope the authors will be able to keep it up to date given the evolving nature of the content." --Doody
