The chapters are descriptive, explicit and provided with relevant material that is organized in a way so as to provide logical and consistent transition of classical genetics into modern genetics.
It discusses all the aspects of current research in Genetics, Developmental Biology and Genomics. The explanations are clear, lucid and straightforward, with diagrams and plenty of illustrative examples. A pleasant touch is the appearance of a scientoons relating to the text at the end of each chapter.

Salient Features:
