Format: Hardcover
This book offers an up-to-date view of molecular genetics and the functional laboratroy tools and theories used to address various inherited disorders. The language is very approachable and the book is wonderfully cross-referenced. New developments in various computational fields are addressed and key websites are given for data analysis so that the interested reader can familiarize himself with these tools. I found this book very helpful for both an introduction and subsequent in depth analysis of various topics. The referenced articles are seminal papers and are a wonderful addition to yoour library. Highly recommended and essential for beginners in health professions, graduate students, and biomedical researchers.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Thomas P. Caruso on May 9, 2006
Format: Hardcover
Though I have been interested in molecular genetics for decades, I have been out-of-touch with the excitement in genetics that is percolating out of the huge amount of data coming from various genome sequencing projects. Want to know why there is so much excitement? Then I suggest you read this book.

The book is up-to-date not only with the latest information about what is happenning in molecular genetics, with a focus on human genetics, but also with the latest molecular biology methods needed to understand the field. Anyone with a basic biochemistry background could pick up this book and get a lot out of it, though the more statistics you know the better you will understand components on linkage analysis.

I plan to use this book as a reference for my developing research interests in this field. When I am reading a paper or after listening to a presentation, I can go right to the information in this book to refresh my knowledge about the method or general thinking about a particular topic. The book adds to this experience by providing key references for just about any related subject covered in the book in a more general fashion. I will be reading these references in specific areas close to my interest.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Ryan W. Bonvillain on January 4, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This book offers detailed insight into the fundamentals of human molecular genetics. The contents review DNA and chromosome structure and function, cellular development, population genetics, cancer genetics, gene therapy, and a myriad of molecular genetic techniques, applications, and analyses. The figures and illustrations beautifully complement the text with easily understood captions and legends. The organization of the book is such that the reader can easily find a topic of interest without thumbing through the entire text. I would highly recommend "Human Molecular Genetics" by Tom Strachan and Andrew P. Read to senior-level college students, graduate students, and researchers. This is a must-have in the library of any geneticist.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Raghu Chivukula on May 4, 2008
Format: Hardcover
HMG3 is a great book for those looking to review the large and growing field of human molecular genetics. It lacks the molecular biological detail that dedicated textbooks such as MBOC contain, but has a large amount of useful information regarding experimental approaches in human molecular genetics, and clinical ramifications of basic science research. I have found it an ideal core reference for graduate work in human genetics.

A very complex field, but the author covers human genetics in an easy to understand way. A great book from basic to very high levels of understanding.
