The idea for this book grew from two earlier efforts, The Human Genome (TS; BIOS Scientific Publishers, 1992) and Medical Genetics, an Illustrated Outline (APR; Gower Medical Publishing, 1989). In these small books we tried to develop a treatment of human genetics based on understanding the structure and function of the normal human genome. Traditionally, textbooks of human genetics tended to start by considering meiosis and the way diseases segregate in pedigrees, whilst textbooks of molecular genetics rarely emphasized human topics. Until recently this was inevitable because so little was understood about the normal human genome. The Human Genome Project has changed all that, and the present book is an attempt to provide a comprehensive integrated study of human molecular genetics.
