The second edition of this excellent book gives a comprehensive overview of the expanding field of human genetics/5(3). George Fraser has been a significant contributor to the great flowering of human and clinical genetics of the last half century.

He has made major contributions to clinical genetics, to the delineation of syndromes (including Fraser syndrome), and to the amelioration of inherited disabilities of hearing and sight. The fi rst edition of Human Genetics, Problems and Approaches, was published in by human geneticists Friedrich Vogel and Arno Motulsky as sole authors.

The aim was broad coverage and in-depth analysis of both medical and human genetics with an emphasis on problems and approaches with occasional historical com-ments.

The authors reconstruct the history of our evolution by focusing on genetic divergence among human groups. Using genetic information accumulated over the last fifty years, they examined over different inherited traits, such as blood types, HLA factors, proteins, and DNA markers, in over eighteen hundred, 4/5(6).
