Description

Molecular medicine is the application of gene or DNA based knowledge to the modern practice of medicine. This book provides contemporary insights into how the genetic revolution is influencing medical thinking and practice on a broad front including clinical medicine, innovative therapies and forensic medicine.

Key Features

  • Extensively revised just after the completion of the Human Genome Project, it provides the latest in molecular medicine developments
  • The only book in Molecular Medicine that has undergone 3 editions
  • Current practice as well as future developments identified
  • Extensive tables, well presented figures - resources for further understanding

Readership

Graduate students/postgraduates, clinicians in molecular biology and genetics

Reviews

"...represents an important contribution to the scientific audience as it separates the knowledge of molecular biology and defines it in molecular medicine terms. The book provides a different and unique perspective to the definition and implications of DNA in medicine. This is a high quality book with excellent art work that contributes significantly to the understanding of the text. As the field of molecular medicine expands, it is clear that textbooks such as this will continue to be needed." - DOODY'S - 3 Stars(2005) "The text, with its thorough multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives, provides an excellent resource for students and professionals working in microbiology, biochemisty, genetics, infectious diseases, molecular biology, and related fields." - CLINICAL INFECTIOUS DISEASES (January 2005) "The third edition is a compact primer of molecular medicine that should be very useful to the student or scientist...College and medical students, medical scientists and physicians, and scientists working in other fields who are interested in understanding the principles and methods of molecular medicine will find this a useful and compact introductory reference." - Marshall Lichtman, University of Rochester Medical Center (2005)
