Essential Genetics: A Genomics Perspective

Front Cover
Jones & Bartlett Learning, 2006 - Science - 600 pages
Completely updated to reflect new discoveries and current thinking in the field, the Fourth Edition of Essential Genetics is designed for the shorter, less comprehensive introductory course in genetics. The text is written in a clear, lively, and concise manner and includes many special features that make the book user friendly. Topics were carefully chosen to provide a solid foundation for understanding the basic processes of gene transmission, mutation, expression, and regulation. The text also helps students develop skills in problem solving, achieve a sense of the social and historical context in which genetics has developed, and become aware of the genetic resources and information available through the Internet.
