Product description

The principles of genetics - classical and modern are presented in this book in a cartoon format. Anecdotes about how the ancients tried to explain sex determination and inheritance abound, making the learning of the concepts of Mendel's Laws, mutations, DNA, genetic diseases, gene splicing as well as sex determination and inheritance, easier to understand. The complexities of the subject are presented in an unintimidating way that is accessible to students of all levels, as well as the lay man to whom science is a hobby.
