From the Author:

This second edition contains 50 percent more information than the first edition, which gained wide acclaim from both readers and journal reviewers. It presents the classical foundations while also covering the latest developments in genetics and other relevant areas such as molecular and cell biology, genomics and proteomics. The book contains over 1,500 illustrations as well as many cross-references, which facilitate the networking of the ideas into a most comprehensive and up-to-date text. Useful as a supplement for courses in biology, it is also well suited to aid in the preparation of manuscripts, research proposals, and course syllabi. Statistical concepts are made simple, legal and ethical implications of biology are discussed, and while the approach is scientific and advanced, the style is simple enough to be understood by a beginner. This compendium brings modern genetics/biology to your fingertips right at your workbench or your desk. With close to 8,000 references, it is the most valuable addition to any personal or public library. An essential tool for scientists, clinicians, nurses, lawyers, teachers, students and the interested public, one professor of genetics commented on the first edition: "the overall effort has been very successful. I know that I, for one, will keep this book in easy reach."
