This second edition of A Dictionary of Biomedicine fills the need to define the specialist language used within an evolving field by offering clear, concise definitions of even the most complex biomedical terms. It includes more than 10,000 A-Z entries on all areas of biomedicine, focusing on areas that have developed since the first edition, such as genomics and biomedical science. Entries are authoritative and wide-ranging, covering terms from the related areas of anatomy, genetics, molecular bioscience, pathology, pharmacology, and clinical medicine. Supplementary material includes appendices on the Greek Alphabet, SI Units and single letter codes for Amino Acids. Fully cross-referenced, the dictionary also features useful navigational entries for types of diseases and disorders-for example renal disorders-that list all related entries in the dictionary so the reader can find them quickly. Aimed primarily at molecular bioscientists, clinicians, and students of biomedical courses, the dictionary is also a useful resource for patients and journalists wishing to research a particular disease.
