The fi rst edition of Human Genetics, Problems and Approaches, was published in by human geneticists Friedrich Vogel and Arno Motulsky as sole authors. The aim was broad coverage and in-depth analysis of both medical and human genetics with an emphasis on problems and approaches with occasional historical com-ments.

Because controlled experimental crosses cannot be made with humans, geneticists must resort to scrutinizing records in the hope that informative matings have been made.
