Landmarks in Medical Genetics

Classic Papers with Commentaries

Edited by Peter S. Harper

Oxford Monographs on Medical Genetics

Because advances in medical genetics over the past 50 years have been so rapid, clinicians and scientists in the field are often unfamiliar with the key research that has led to many developments which are now accepted and familiar. This collection of classic papers has been edited mainly for medical geneticists and genetics researchers who wish to learn more about how their field originated and developed. Brief, clearly written commentaries on each paper and section place the work in its current context, serve to unify the different parts of the book, and help make it both readable and authoritative.
