Human Reproductive and Prenatal Genetics presents the latest material from a detailed molecular, cellular and translational perspective. Considering its timeliness and potential international impact, this all-inclusive and authoritative work is ideal for researchers, students, and clinicians worldwide. Currently, there are no comprehensive books covering the field of human reproductive and prenatal genetics. As such, this book aims to be among the largest and most useful references available.

Key Features

  • Features chapter contributions from leading international scientists and clinicians
  • Provides in-depth coverage of key topics in human reproductive and prenatal genetics, including genetic controls, fertilization and implantation, in vitro culture of the human embryo for the study of post-implantation development, and more
  • Identifies how researchers and clinicians can implement the latest genetic, epigenetic, and –omics based approaches


Active researchers, basic and translational scientists, clinicians, and students in the areas of human genetics, genomics, reproductive medicine, gynecology, obstetrics, andrology, embryology, endocrinology, bioinformatics, prenatal testing, and genetic testing; genetic counselors; bioethicists; fertility specialists
