Summary

Genetics: Analysis of Genes and Genomes represents the most current, comprehensive, and progressive introduction to genetics and genomics at the college level. Keeping pace with the latest developments in genetics, the authors, Hartl and Jones, treat classical, molecular, and population genetics as distinct but unified subjects that illuminate and reinforce each other throughout the textbook. This integrated approach to teaching genetics is a logical progression in an era when the various subdisciplines of genetics are so closely interwoven.

In Genetics, Fifth Edition students will

  • learn the basic processes of gene expression, transmission, mutation, and regulation;
  • become familiar with the approaches modern geneticists use in their studies;
  • gain insight into the historical and social context in which genetics and genomics have developed;  
  • learn to think about genetics the way a modern geneticist does in this post-genomic era;  
  • and learn to appreciate that genetics is an endlessly fascinating, ongoing enterprise.
