Genetic Evaluation of the Human Fetus in Utero: Present and Future Perspectives
Rapid progress is being made in the science of human genetics. Methods developed primarily in microbial systems for the detailed study of genes and their actions, can now, in some instances, be extended to the study of man. These scientific accomplishments, coupled with changing social and legal attitudes, provide important and challenging new tools for the physician-geneticist.
