I got his book to better understand genetics (after I had already taken the class). I wanted to understand some of the concepts I did not get the first time around. It is missing gene mapping (huge for me). ALso involving the cekk cycle it doesn't say the stages of prophase but it has something stupid interkinesis (What? it is a stage where literally nothing happens!) why would you put that in there?
