As the authors state in their preface, much has changed in the few short years after the second edition, so they had to revise and update almost every chapter of the textbook.
The major driving force, the biggest single change, has been the adoption of the next-generation or massive parallel sequencing in the routine diagnostics.
This indeed changed the service that can be offered by the geneticists to the families affected by rare and undiagnosed diseases. At the same time, some approaches became less important, so the authors tried to move the balance more towards sophisticated techniques.
The role of the clinical geneticists is evolving, the developments have mandated changes throughout the entire book, with special emphasis in Chapter 5, where the authors explain to the readers how sequencing works and is used, how it can be employed in the sensitive communication with families, particularly with affected individuals, or with those members who are at risk but as yet unaffected.
The references are also well updated.
This is a good book, it is comprehensive and very useful. It can be recommended primarily to undergraduates and postgraduates in medicine, including the board exam trainees, and to PhD students working on human disease genetics, who can profit from reading it.
It can also be recommended to those who work in laboratory genetics and want to improve their basic knowledge in clinical genetics. It follows the UK and American curricula for undergraduate medical students and I would have liked this book as a student myself with the very clinical format had it been available in the 's but of course genetics textbooks then were much thinner on detail.
The case histories - 26 in total based on different diseases in theoretical families from A-Z, are excellent and easy to follow. New sections of the book include information on single nucleotide polymorphisms and exome sequencing, and the limitations of genome-wide association studies - all easy to understand for the student or aging physician.
The only error I could find is in one of the case scenarios. I expect the next edition to be updated to haemophilia B and the authors could well extend the story into mentioning some of the recent publications on how using mitochondrial DNA from Prince Philip a 3 rd cousin of Queen Elizabeth — as well as her consort, just to give more genetics trivia helped fit pieces of historical genetic jigsaw together into the Russian royal family DNA investigations, following exhumation of some of the Tsar's family - all fascinating reading and gripping stories that would interest all students.
This should be cheaper and a way to boost sales to students in the current recession. They might also include some actual snippets on genome screens on public figures who have had their entire DNA analysed.
