Fully updated since the first edition (1991) this book provides a simple introduction for risk calculation for genetics counseling,, describing how risks can easily be estimated or calculated for most counseling situations. Easy-to-use, with worked examples, this book covers all patterns of inheritance. In this second edition, Introduction to Risk Calculation in Genetic Counseling now includes a chapter on cancer genetics, and there are also new sections on anticipation, gonadal mosaicism, the potential use of susceptibility loci, three-way chromosome translocations and meiotic drive.|
