This new edition of an essential text for all those working within transfusion and blood banking is now even more biologically and clinically relevant, incorporating the latest information on the genes for various blood groups and including greater content on the functional significance of blood groups. The book covers techniques used in blood grouping, troubleshooting and quality assurance and integrates serology with molecular biology, marrying the basic understanding at the genetic level with a cellular understanding of the red blood cell membrane. Now in full colour throughout.

them or control their biosynthesis. In addition, this book provides information on the clinical relevance of blood groups and on the importance of blood group antibodies in transfusion medicine in particular. The second edition of Human Blood Groups was published in 2002; this new edition will appear 11 years later. There have been many new findings in the blood group world over those years. In order to prevent the book from becoming too cumbersome, my goal has been to produce a third edition
