Overview

An Introduction to Genetic Analysis (IGA) stands out from its peers in this course in that it provides a clear introduction to the techniques and experiments of scientists past and present, not just an "encyclopedia" of information. This experimental emphasis, together with a solid pedagogical framework in the chapters, provides the clearest, most cutting-edge text available. IGA is also well-known for its outstanding problem sets, an integral part of the genetics course at any school.
