Why do families vary in height? How can diseases be traced through many generations? What is DNA and why did its discovery rock the scientific world? Terms such as genetic fingerprinting and genetic engineering are frequently used. But a clear explanation of the language of genetics and of the implications behind the advances in its understanding is often difficult to find. The introduction to Essential Genetics explodes many of the popular myths that surround this subject. It is followed by a detailed and easy-to-use A-Z section that defines terms, describes how they are applied and makes helpful suggestions for further reading and research.

The historical growth of the discipline is charted and contemporary advances explained. Hundreds of cross-references help student and interested amateur alike to explore the complex world of genetics.
