    schema:reviewBody ""Don't Panic! Crash Course is here the perfect set of course notes that you have, until now, only dreamt of. Have those late nights prevented you from making early morning lectures? Did the sun streaming into the lecture room kill your concentration? If you haven't managed to produce a set of comprehensive notes, then, with Crash Course, there's no need to worry. As thousands of students will tell you, Crash Course will help you get through your exams, and act as a quick and reliable reference throughout your course. These new and improved editions have been updated to include the latest research and the current best practice in disease management. Written by students, for students, under faculty supervision, Crash Course is written in a note form that is easily absorbed. You can use this book either as a revision aid or a supplement to course textbooks. Built-in features have been designed to maximize access to information and to help you retain it. This text first takes you through the basic science of cell biology and genetics looking at the fundamental concepts, molecular mechanisms, and the control of cellular processes. Part II then relates this to medical genetics, and covers the latest information on molecular genetics as applied to medicine, including the human genome project, cloning and gene therapy. Clinical application is also brought to the basic science by outlining the genetic consultation and the basic pathology of genetic diseases including single gene disorders and genetic cancer syndromes. Multiple-choice, short-answer and essay questions make up Part III, and allow you to assess your progress and test your exam performance after you have studied this text. Book jacket."--Jacket." ;
