Summary
"In recent years, doctors and scientists have made great strides in increasing our knowledge of hundreds of birth defects, and more than 4,000 specific genetic disorders have been identified. Genetic research into causes of and treatments for disease is on the rise thanks in part to the successful mapping of the human genome by the Human Genome Project, completed in 2003." "Presenting more than 1,000 new and updated entries reflecting the most current research, The Encyclopedia of Genetic Disorders and Birth Defects, Third Edition offers lay readers and professionals alike the most comprehensive single-volume reference to genetic disorders and birth defects. Topics are arranged in an easy-to-follow A-to-Z format covering everything from the most basic genetic concepts to the latest screening and diagnostic techniques."--BOOK JACKET
