Human Molecular Genetics 4th edition (PDF) is an established and class-proven etextbook for upper-level graduates and undergraduate students which provides an integrated and authoritative approach to the molecular aspects of human genetics. While maintaining the hallmark features of previous editions; the 4th Edition has been completely updated. It includes new Key Concepts at the beginning of each chapter and annotated further reading at the conclusion of each chapter; to help readers navigate the wealth of information in this subject.

The bookhas been restructured so genomic technologies are integrated throughout; and next generation sequencing is included. Genetic testing; approaches to therapy; screening; personalized medicine; and disease models have been brought together in one section. Coverage of cell biology including stem cells and cell therapy; comparative genomics; model organisms; studying gene function and structure; noncoding RNAs and their functions; and epigenetics have all been expanded.
