An introduction to the Genetics and Epigenetics of Human Disease
by Marcus Pembrey

Publisher: Progress Educational Trust 2012
Number of pages: 36

Description:
This booklet aims to provide a basic introduction to the role of genetics and epigenetics in diseases ranging from the well known (breast cancer and eczema) to the more rare (Fragile X and Angelman syndromes). It begins by examining conditions where there is a single faulty gene to blame, and moves on to diseases where there are likely to be many contributing factors, including one's early developmental experience and the prevailing social and physical environment.
