Description

For courses in Genetics in the department of biological sciences, and other courses in zoology, agriculture, and health science. Derived from Klug and Cummings highly acclaimed Concepts of Genetics, Essentials of Genetics presents a more succinct, less detailed overview of the discipline, with balanced coverage of both classical and modern genetics. Known for their clear writing style, emphasis on concepts, visual art programme, and thoughtful coverage of all areas of genetics, the authors capture students interest with up-to-date coverage of cutting edge topics and research. This text will help students connect the science of genetics to the issues of today through interesting and thought provoking applications.show more
