The Genetics of the Human Globin Gene Loci: Formal Genetics and Gene Linkage

  • George R. Honig
  • Junius G. AdamsIII


Various aspects of globin gene segregation and inheritance have been discussed in earlier chapters. In this section the genetics of the hemoglobins and their mutations are considered more systematically, both to define the specific principles of globin gene inheritance, and to formulate a rational basis for genetic counseling of families affected with these disorders.
