Introduction to Genes and Disease

"Genes and Disease is a collection of articles that make up a textbook that discuss genes and the diseases that they cause. These genetic disorders are organized by the parts of the body that they affect. As some diseases affect various body systems, they appear in more than one chapter. With each genetic disorder, the underlying mutation(s) is discussed, along with clinical features and links to key websites. You can browse through the articles online, and you can also download a printable file (PDF) of each chapter." There are also links to each chrmomosome as well as other resource material.
