PRINCIPLES OF GENETICS, 8TH ED
Market_Desc: · Advanced Undergraduate and First-Year Graduate Students
About The Book: This text offers clear, comprehensive and unique coverage of genetics, with an emphasis on applications, written primarily for students. It provides up-to-date coverage of the most recent techniques used in modern genetics such as gene cloning and Southern, Western and Northern blot analyses of genes and gene products. Rather than simply treating the somewhat esoteric principles of genetics in abstraction, Gardner's text stands apart from most other introductory texts in that it stresses actual and potential future applications of the principles discussed, particularly in agriculture and medicine. Among the specific topics covered are cell mechanics; properties and replication; chromosome mapping; gene expression; mutation; gene cloning; genetic controls of immune response and cell division; genetic engineering and more.
