Title: Instant Notes in Genetics (Instant Notes S. )
Description: Bios Scientific Publishers Ltd. 1998. (ISBN: 1859961665). Paperback. An understanding of genetics, and particularly molecular genetics, is central to modern life sciences. Instant Notes in Genetics will help you through any introductory course in genetics whether part of a biological science or medical degree program. Using the successful "Instant Notes" approach, this book provides a logical structure to learning about both prokaryotic and eukaryotic genetics by covering all the important topics in a uniform, systematic format. Each topic begins with a summary of the essential facts - an ideal revision checklist - followed by detailed explanation and clear, simple diagrams. The diagrams are particularly easy to understand and reproduce for essays and examinations. Instant Notes in Genetics covers: Genes - Transciption, translation and replication - Regulation of gene expression - Genomes - the Human Genome Project - DNA mutation and repair - Mechanisms of inheritance - Mendelian genetics - Sex determination - Population genetics - Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium - Evolution - Recombinant DNA technology - Gene therapy - Genetics in forensic science - Genetic engineering and biotechnology. If you are studying genetics and fed up with wading through massive texts and suffering form information overload, then Instant Notes in Genetics is the lifeline you need to help you understand the subject and pass the course. This book is a must for those (like myself) who find it difficult to get their head round the subject of genetics! I am a fan of the instant notes series and i was not disappointed with Winters' instalment. The book reads like a set of detailed, yet concise and to the point lecture notes. After reading it, I finally understood some very important concepts behind the subject of genetics.
