Essentials of Genetics

The book covers both the classical and molecular fields of Genetics to enable the students to form an integrated overview of the genetic principles.
During the past couple of decades the science of Genetics has grown at an unprecedented pace and the purpose of this book is to provide up-to-date basic information on the subject that emphasizes the multifaceted complex questions of life. The chapters are descriptive, explicit and provided with relevant material that is organized in a way so as to provide logical and consistent transition of classical genetics into modern genetics. 
It discusses all the aspects of current research in Genetics, Developmental Biology and Genomics. The explanations are clear, lucid and straightforward, with diagrams and plenty of illustrative examples. A pleasant touch is the appearance of a scientoons relating to the text at the end of each chapter.
