Front Cover
EduPedia Publications Pvt. Ltd., Oct 14, 2019 - Science - 215 pages

The knowledge of genetics and the bioinformatics has increased rapidly over the past few decades. The application of this knowledge has become an integral part of patient care and the preventive thrust of modern medicine. The aetiology of the majority of disorders has some genetic component.

The subject of genetics is gaining utmost importance in the medical science. However, most of the medical students find this subject difficult to understand and therefore, neglect it. The aim of this book is to present the text in such a way that it provides the clear and conceptual understanding of the subject. A simple and concise account of different techniques of genetics will help students understand them better.

This book is not a comprehensive textbook of genetics. Instead, it takes a look at the basic concepts as well as interesting and clinically applicable aspects of genetics.

This book on techniques of genetics emphasize the central principles and how they apply to practice. Photographs, illustrations, and tables containing patient/family vignettes demonstrate clinical relevance and enhance visual impact of the material for easier and more effective learning and retention.

Includes access to the complete text and images online at student.

The latest knowledge and research on gene identification, cancer genetics, gene testing and gene therapy, common disorders, ethical and social issues, and much more so you can keep up with current developments in genetics.

Bioinformatics, NGS Data analysis, Barcoding and Multiplexing, Whole genome sequence analysis, Gene bank, Genomic browers and Genomic batabases are some of the interesting topics that has been provided for the students.

 

A knowledge of molecular genetics is essential to understand the latest developments in medicine. An attempt has been made to outline the fundamentals of molecular genetics so that the reader gets familiar with the terminologies and techniques used in this field.

The students from various nonmedical background will also find this book useful in familiarizing them with the clinically applied aspects of genetics.

To make it easy, text is supported with the flowchart.
