Summary: Every new copy includes access to the student companion websiteUpdated throughout to reflect the latest discoveries in this fast-paced field, Essential Genetics: A Genomics Perspective, Sixth Edition, provides an accessible, student-friendly introduction to modern genetics. Designed for the shorter, less comprehensive course, the Sixth Edition presents carefully chosen topics that provide a solid foundation to the basic understanding of gene mutation, expression, and regulation. It g
oes on to discuss the development and progression of genetics as a field of study within a societal and historical context. The Sixth Edition includes new learning objectives within each chapter which helps students identify what they should know as a result of their studying and highlights the skills they should acquire through various practice problems.What''s new in the Sixth Edition?Chapter 1 includes a new section on the origin of life Chapter 2 includes a revised discussion of the complementation test and how it is used to determine whether two mutations have defects in the same geneChapter 3 incorporates new data showing that the folding of interphase chromatin into chromosome territories has the form of a fractal globule. It also includes a new section on progenitor cells and embryonic stem cellsChapter 4 includes a new section discussing how copy-number variation in human amylase evolved in response to increased dietary starch as well as the latest on hotspots of recombinationChapter 5 is updated with the latest information on hazards of polycarbonate food containers. It also includes a new section on the genetics of schizophrenia and autism spectrum disorderChapter 6 includes a revised section on restriction mapping and also discusses the newest massively parallel DNA sequencing technologies that can yield the equivalent of 200 human genomes'' worth of DNA sequence in a single sequencing runChapter 7 has been updated with a shortened and streamlined discussion of recombination
