idea for this book grew from two earlier efforts, The Human Genome, 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.
