Produktbeschreibung
An invaluable student-tested study aid, this primer, first published in 2007, provides guided instruction for the analysis and interpretation of genetic principles and practice in problem solving. Each section is introduced with a summary of useful hints for problem solving and an overview of the topic with key terms. A series of problems, generally progressing from simple to more complex, then allows students to test their understanding of the material. Each question and answer is accompanied by detailed explanation. This third edition includes additional problems in basic areas that often challenge students, extended coverage in molecular biology and development, an expanded glossary of terms, and updated historical landmarks. Students at all levels, from beginning biologists and premedical students to graduates seeking a review of basic genetics, will find this book a valuable aid. It will complement the formal presentation in any genetics textbook or stand alone as a self-paced review manual.

Autorenporträt
James N. Thompson, Jr., is a David Boyd Professor in the Department of Zoology at the University of Oklahoma. He has taught genetics for almost thirty years. His research interests are in genetic responses and adaptation to stress, genotype and environment interactions in quantitative traits, and variation in mutation rate.
Jenna J. Hellack is Professor and Chairperson of the Department of Biology at the University of Central Oklahoma. She currently teaches introductory genetics, evolution, and molecular and population genetics courses. Her research interests are in the area of population genetics.
David S. Durica has been a member of the Department of Zoology at the University of Oklahoma since 1988, where he teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses in genetics. His research focuses on developmental genetics and the organization and expression of multigene families.
