About the Book

Genetic Polymorphisms and Susceptibity to Disease provides a reference for established researchers in genetic research. The book provides a broad but thorough overview of how allelic gene differences influence disease susceptibility in the human population, and will be a useful reference to researchers across a range of disciplines, for example, oncology, cardiology and immunology . In addition, this book serves as a primer for students first entering the field of genetic research.
