Synopsis:

Genomics in the Clinic illustrates the current scope of the practice of genetics for healthcare professionals, so they can understand principles applicable to genetic testing and consultation. Written by an authoritative well-balanced team, including experienced clinical geneticists, genetic counselors, and medical subspecialists, this book adopts an accessible, easy-to-follow format. Sections are dedicated to basic genetic principles; clinical genetic and genomic testing; prenatal, clinical and cancer genetic diagnosis and counseling; and ethical and social implications in genomic medicine. Over 100 illustrative cases examine a range of prenatal, pediatric and adult genetic conditions and testing, putting these concepts and approaches into practice. Genomics in the Clinic is important for primary care providers, as patient care evolves in the current genomic-influenced world of precision medicine.



  • Clearly explains central concepts of genetic testing and genomic medicine for non-genetic physicians, healthcare providers, and trainees
  • Offers clear steps for clinical integration of genetic concepts, genomic technology, and interpretation of genetic test results approachable and relevant to clinical practice
  • Descriptive, applied case studies illustrate recommended genetic evaluation, counseling and management for a range of conditions throughout the lifetime
