Description: From Book News, Inc.
<:st> The most recent editions of this classic have been cited in the and . More than the preferred format for Luddites and the computer-weary, this three-volume printed MIM (there is an online version as well as a CD-ROM) will someday provide a perfect cross-section of what was known about functional genomics at this point in time. The components of each entry include: title, including synonyms; description of phenotype, gene product, and gene; nature of basic defect in disorder(s), including pathogenesis and pathophysiology; genetics, including mapping and population genetics; animal models; diagnosis and management of disorder(s); allelic variants; and extensive references. Entries are arranged in four catalogs according to whether they relate to autosomal (previous editions divided this section into dominant and recessive), X-linked, Y-linked, or mitochondrial genes (or phenotypes).

Product Description:

The twelfth edition of this classic reference work includes:

and#149; More than 2,000 new entries

and#149; A total of more than 9,000 entries

and#149; New features and enhancement of the familiar old features

and#149; Mapping information on more than 4,000 genes of known function

and#149; Information on specific point mutations responsible for more than 700 genetic disorders or neoplasms

Mendelian Inheritance in Man (MIM) is a genetic knowledgebase that serves clinical medicine and biomedical research, including the Human Genome Project. It aims to be comprehensive (not only complete, but also collated, integrated, and interpreted), authoritative (not only accurate but also sound in its interpretations and judgements), and timely (not only up-to-date but also historically dimensioned).

From a review of the eleventh edition, Reproductive Toxicology: "Even the convenience of computer-based forms of MIM cannot eliminate the need for MIM in book form. The preface provides a wonderful synopsis of human genetics. The information contained in this text serves as a concise review for those with a genetics background."

From a review of the tenth edition, New England Journal of Medicine: "[Victor McKusick] has been for all these years the shepherd of the development of the field [of clinical genetics]. Perhaps his most important pragmatic achievement has been the 10 editions of Mendelian Inheritance in Man, which rapidly became and has remained the principal source of information on inherited diseases for all clinical geneticists.

"In addition to the erudite entries in the books, the references given with each description represent a magnificent bibliography of clinical genetics. With McKusick's leadership and continued interest in gene mapping, the book also rep-resents an important compen-dium of the location of genes on specific chromosomes.

"The book is a magnificent security blanket for the clinical geneticist and should be in the libraries not only of these specialists, but also of all others who see patients with diseases that have genetic components."
