The Gale Encyclopedia Of Genetic Disorders (2 Volume Set) Download
Other special features include a comprehensive glossary, a chromosome map, a guide to symbols for pedigree charts, and an organizations directory all features that should make understanding difficult genetics concepts much easier. However, larger consumer health collections and those that frequently receive requests for consumer information on clinical genetics are advised to purchase this as a supplement; it is worth every penny. Highly recommended. Current research has heightened interest in genetics.
This new encyclopedia compiled by genetic counselors, physicians, and medical writers explains genetic and congenital disorders in lay language. The alphabetically arranged signed entries cover genetic disorders Down syndrome , Sickle cell disease , congenital disorders Cleft lip and palate , Patent ductus arteriosus , scientific concepts and research Chromosome , Human Genome Project , and clinical tests and specialties Amniocentesis , Genetic counseling.
There are also articles about conditions such as prion diseases, which have a genetic component but can be transmitted between unrelated individuals, and Accutane embryopathy, a combination of birth defects that occurs when a pregnant woman takes the drug Accutane. The entries are from one to four pages long. They include a definition of the subject, a description of the disorder, genetic profile, demographics, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and management, and prognosis.
Color boxes have definitions of key terms. The articles also have resource lists. Over illustrations, including color photographs and pedigree charts, supplement the text. A symbol guide for the pedigree charts, gene maps, a glossary, a list of organizations, and an index complete the work. There are ample cross-references within the articles. Although some articles, such as Tay-Sachs disease , are virtually unchanged from the first edition of The Gale Encyclopedia of Medicine , most of the entries are new or major revisions.
The broad scope of the encyclopedia, which covers both common Asthma and rare Simpson-Golabi-Behmel syndrome disorders, makes it a very useful resource.
The second edition of the Encyclopedia of Genetic Disorders and Birth Defects Facts On File, has a nice history of human genetics, but its entries on the disorders are quite short. The Genetic Disorders Sourcebook 2d ed. Families affected by genetic or congenital disorders and students writing reports will find accurate, current information in The Gale Encyclopedia of Genetic Disorders.
Public libraries and consumer health collections will find it well worth the price.
