Review Questions of Clinical Molecular Genetics presents a comprehensive study guide for the board and certificate exams presented by the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) and the American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ABMGG). It provides residents and fellows in genetics and genomics with over 1,000 concise questions, ranging from topics in cystic fibrosis, to genetic counseling, to trinucleotide repeat expansion disorders. It puts key points in the form of questions, thus challenging the reader to retain knowledge. As board and certificate exams require knowledge of new technologies and applications, this book helps users meet that challenge.
