Authored by a very eminent geneticist, this text gives students a thorough appreciation of the development and potential of analytical genetic techniques. Beginning with a consideration of both the classical Mendelian and the molecular biological aspects of genetic analysis, the book goes on to discuss progress in three key areas of genetics. Firstly the elucidation of the detailed structure and overall organization of the genome, secondly the way that genetic differences at the molecular level account for heritable variation in populations, and finally an explanation of how the genes control the metabolism and development of the whole organism. Professor Fincham takes as his theme the links between classical and molecular genetics, and throughout the book shows how the combination of these two approaches can be a powerful tool for the advancement of genetic research. <ul> <li>A clear and simple text from one of the world's leading geneticists <li>Abundant and innovative illustrations <li>Links classical Mendelian genetics with the new molecular genetic techniques </ul>
