This companion to "Brenner and Rector's The Kidney" offers a state-of-the-art summary of the most recent advances in renal genetics. "Molecular and Genetic Basis for Renal Disease" provides the nephrologist with a comprehensive look at modern investigative tools in nephrology research today, and reviews the molecular pathophysiology of the neprhon as well as the most common genetic and acquired renal diseases. A comprehensive clinical review of Medelian renal disease is also included.
