Summary

NATA compliant Ricki Lewis, Contributing Editor, "The Scientist" Compelling, human interest examples from the author's extensive experience as a genetic counselor and science journalist keep the students interested in the textual material. This text weaves relevance throughout by including stories about real people dealing with real genetic issues. Through "In Their Own Words Essays," individuals tell of their experience with genetic conditions. In addition, "Bioethics: Choices for the Future Boxes," found at the ends of appropriate chapters, encourage students to ask difficult questions of themselves, and to predict how the new science of genetics might impact their lives.
