The initiation of cell cultures from biopsies of human tissues has provided material for diagnosis of various genetic disorders and for the elucidation of basic biological mechanisms. Availability of cells with known genotypes for diagnosis and study promises much for the future, and the breakthroughs are expected to contribute significant information for improvement of diagnostic tests, screening programs for affected individuals, detection of carriers, and prenatal diagnosis. Dr. Priest has reviewed thoroughly the progress in the use of cell cultures, and her literature survey is commendable. This text is intended to acquaint students of biology and medicine with cell culture
