With its unique integration of genetics and molecular biology, this text probes fascinating questions that explore how our understanding of key genetic phenomena can be used to understand biological systems. Opening with a brief overview of key genetic principles, model organisms, andepigenetics, the book goes on to explore the use of gene mutations, the analysis of gene expression and activity, a discussion of the genetic structure of natural populations, and more.

Editorial Reviews

"Philip Meneely makes a concerted effort to tie the key concepts derived from model systems to an understanding of human medical genetics, which works well and will be appreciated by students." --The Society for General Microbiology
