Overview

This first-edition text clearly presents the fundamental principles of genetics, with an emphasis on the problem-solving skills crucial to understanding the complexity of genetics. Intended for undergraduate students in the biological sciences, it is designed to ground students in the basics of genetics, yet also enable them to explore more advanced and specialized subjects. Although the text does not presume an advanced knowledge of biology and chemistry, it does contain numerous examples of how the study of modern genetics rests upon these basic life sciences.
