Organized for easy usage, forty-two mini-chapters begin with molecular structures and progress through molecular processes to population genetics and evolution. Students will find the short, focused chapters accessible and more easily absorbed than the longer and more complex chapters of traditional genetics textbooks. Extensively illustrated throughout with diagrams, this comprehensive textbook will provide a compact alternative for introductory genetics courses.
