About this book

In Genetics and You, John F. Jackson, MD, an eminent medical geneticist of many years' experience, presents everything you need to know to understand and deal with inherited disease and its risks. He explains in simple understandable language the sometimes baffling principles of genetics that underlie genetic disorders. From these principles, Dr. Jackson clarifies the process of genetic counseling, demonstrates the importance of constructing a family pedigree, and describes the latest methods of prenatal diagnosis. You will also learn about the role of environmental factors in producing birth defects, how the new techniques from molecular biology can help in their early detection and prevention, and what your reproductive options may be. A glossary of terms reduces to everyday language the sometimes mystifying technical jargon used by geneticists. There is also an annotated bibliography describing other books to consult, as well as a list of organizations to contact for further information and help with specific problems.
