Description of Vogel and Motulsky's Human Genetics

The book Vogel and Motulsky's Human Genetics, Problems, and Approaches, was published in 1970 by human geneticists Friedrich Vogel and Arno Motulsky as sole authors. 
The aim was broad coverage and in-depth analysis of both medical and human genetics with an emphasis on problems and approaches with occasional historical comments. The book Vogel and Motulsky's Human Genetics acquired an excellent reputation as an advanced text of human genetics and has been translated into Italian, Japanese, Russian, Chinese, and Portuguese. 
The fourth edition of Vogel and Motulsky's Human Genetics book general aims to remain similar and together with novel developments are now set out in the Introduction of this new fourth edition.
