An excellent example of a modern textbook, Genetic Analysis is a readable and stimulating introduction to this rapidly developing topic.

New material in the second edition includes epigenetics, population genetics, gene identification in humans and gene-enabled medicine. It has excellent scientific content and its pedagogical style is designed to nurture independent learning.

There is a comprehensive glossary and each chapter is supported by clear diagrams, practical problems, text boxes exploring topics in more detail, and case studies.

Genetic Analysis will earn its place on a biology or genetics student's bookshelf.
