    schema:description ""Key Features: Provides a ready reference for clinical practice. It features many list and tables that will be useful in daily practice as well as appendices of normal values and templates of forms not found in medical texts; the contents fulfil the recommendations for medical school core curriculum in genetics as provided to the National Board of Examiners by the Information and Education Committee of the American Society of Human Genetics; supports a problem-based learning approach and includes principles of investigation and management; serves as class notes of lecture-based courses in medical genetics; the instructor can derive test questions quickly and easily from the text; and statistical analysis of test results is very robust because of built-in coordination of lecture and test material."--Jacket."@en ;
