Balancing classical and modern genetics, Essentials of Genetics helps readers understand basic genetics concepts, apply those concepts to genetics problems, and recognize the logic behind them. This succinct treatment features coverage of new research that will capture readers’ interests.

From the Publisher:

Essentials of Genetics is derived from Klug and Cummings's highly successful Concepts of Genetics (1994), presenting a more succinct, less detailed overview of the discipline. The text balances the coverage of classical and modern topics, providing extremely clear presentations of both transmission genetics (heredity) and molecular genetics. An historical perspective is maintained throughout the text as well as an emphasis on analysis and problem solving.

From the Back Cover:

Known for their clear writing style, emphasis on concepts, visual art program, and thoughtful coverage of all areas of genetics, the authors capture readers' interest with up-to-date coverage of cutting-edge topics and research. This book balances the coverage of classical and modern topics, providing extremely clear presentations of both transmission genetics (heredity) and molecular genetics, maintaining an historical perspective throughout the book as well as an emphasis on analysis and problem-solving.
