Synopsis:

Genomics to the Clinic: A Practical Guide to Genetic Testing, Evaluation, and Counseling clearly explains central concepts of clinical genomic medicine and testing for non-geneticist clinicians and healthcare affiliates of various types, including pediatricians, internists, general practitioners, family medicine doctors, obstetricians and gynecologists, oncologists and pharmacists. Readers will learn to make appropriate genetic referrals, prepare patients for genetic consultation and testing results, understand basic genetic testing methods and nomenclature, and become versed in the ethical, legal and psychosocial aspects of genomic medicine. Essential topics include clinical genetic testing, genetic consultation and referrals, ELSI in genomic medicine, genetic diagnosis, and prenatal testing.

Descriptive, applied case studies also examine a range of genetic conditions and testing methods, putting these concepts and approaches into practice. With its focus on accessible instruction, full-color imagery, and real-world application, this book prepares clinicians and healthcare providers of all types for a new age of genomic and precision-based medicine.



  • Provides a well-balanced author team, including an experienced clinical geneticist and genetic counselor who cover essential topics in an accessible, easy-to-follow format
  • Includes applied case studies that examine recommended protocols for a range of genetic conditions
  • Makes genetic and genomic concepts, technology, and interpretation of genetic test results approachable and relevant to clinical practice, with clear steps for clinical integration
