Genomic Medicine

SERIES EDITOR:
Dhavendra Kumar, University of Glamorgan
Genomic and molecular medicine hold tremendous implications for the future of clinical medicine, and this book series offers a selection of comprehensive accounts on major topics in the field, contributed by world experts on the chosen topic. Each book in this series discusses the genetic/genomic mechanisms and clinical manifestations underlying a different disease or group of disorders. Expert authors provide systematic accounts and interpretations of genetic and genomic studies related to a particular disease, and then offer insights into the role of genetic/genomic factors in the development of disease, as well as the therapeutic potential of these insights. It is anticipated that the interested reader will find these time-saving ‘Lectures’ invaluable in their clinical practice and medical research.
