    Description

    Principles Of Genetics comprehensively covers the various principles, applications, and the importance of genetics in the contemporary world.

    Summary Of The Book

    Genetics is a branch of biology that deals with genes, variation, and heredity in living things. It is concerned with the inference of traits from one generation to another. It studies the function of genes, gene distribution, molecular structures, and gene behaviour.

    The 8th edition of Principles Of Genetics details the fundamentals of genetics. The book contains 24 chapters. The book begins with topics such as the Birth of Genetics. It also covers Mendelian Genetics, the Replication of Genetic Material, Cell Mechanics, the Transposable Genetic Elements, Mutation, and Gene Expression.

    Other chapters in the book include Sex Determination and Sex Linkage, Replication and Structure of Eukaryotic Chromosomes, Chromosome Mapping, Crossing-Over, Quantitative Genetics, the Recombination in Bacteria, and Genetics of Behavior.

    Other topics like the Genetic Fine Structure of Classical Genetics, Regulation of Gene Expression in Prokaryotes, Development in Eukaryotes, Variations in the Structure of Chromosome, Extrachromosomal Inheritance, and Variations in the number of Chromosome are also present. The Genetic Control of the Immune Response, the Genetic Control of Cell Division, Evolutionary Genetics, and the future of Genetic Engineering are some other topics that have also been detailed.

    The authors give special attention to the applications of genetics. The book has been updated with the new techniques that are employed for research in modern genetics and how these techniques have helped us understand more about the subject. Some other concepts covered are Gene Cloning and Northern, Southern, and Western Blot Analyses of Gene Products. The role of genetics in Medicine and Agriculture has also been highlighted.

    The end of each chapter has sections titled Summary, References, Problems, and Questions. The book is peppered with illustrations. The end of the book contains the Glossary and Answers to the Problems.

    Quality is Not good

    This is a Xerox copy of the original book, so the quality is low. The fonts are small and there is no coloured pictures, paper quality is below average.
    Not feeling happy, though the subject material seems well-presented.
