Applied Genetics in Healthcare

Book which approaches the issues of genetic health care at a more advanced level and is primarily intended as a handbook for those training or working as genetic specialists. However, the book will also be a useful resource for practitioners who specialize in particular fields of health care that require knowledge of genetics in specific topics.
