This, the first Canadian edition of Genetics: From Genes to Genomes, emphasizes not only the core concepts of genetics, but also the cutting-edge discoveries, modern tools, and analytic methods that have made the science of genetics the exciting, vibrant, and dynamic discipline that it is today.

Genetics: From Genes to Genomes. represents a new approach to an undergraduate course in genetics. It is one that integrates genetics concepts to create an up-to-date vantage point from which students can explore the molecular basis of life. The strength of this integrated approach is that students who complete the book will have a strong command of genetics as it is practiced today by both academic and corporate researchers. The text also goes to great lengths to highlight the research contributions of Canadian geneticists.
