Basic Genetics is a concise introductory textbook that focuses not only on understanding and explaining the main points of genetics, but also upon covering the required essential traditional subjects in the field. The main goal of this textbook is to help first year students who are taking their first course in human genetics to understand the different topics within genetics. It is of particular interest for those who are preparing themselves to study medicine or other medical sciences. This textbook presents only the essential required information. Some of the different subjects included in the eight chapters are: cell cycle and cellular division, Mendelian principles of heredity, the molecular basis of genetic material, gene expression and gene expression control, genetic variations and genetic engineering, as well as human genetics. In addition, Basic Genetics contains multiple choice questions covering each topic and their answers. These questions are absolutely essential for students' self- assessment. These different topics of basic genetics have also been illustrated by simple diagrams in full color.

v Genetics is a basic science, providing the foundation for major biotechnological
applications in medicine, agriculture, and other interdisciplinary fields. However,
the teaching and learning of genetics have been fraught with difficulty.

Traditionally, genetics laboratory exercises at the university level focus on mono- and dihybrid crosses and phenotypic analysis—exercises under traditional time, materials, and process constraints. Lately, molecular techniques such as gene cloning, polymerase chain reactions (PCR), and bioinformatics are being included in many teaching laboratories—where affordable. Human chromosome analysis, when present at all, has often been restricted to simple identification of chromosomes by number, through the usual “cut-and-paste” method. Although several online karyotyping (chromosome identification) programs have become available, they are not meaningful for studying the dynamics of the chromosome system, nor do they help students understand genetics as a discipline. The software that accompanies this book has been shown to be an ideal tool for learning about genetics, which requires a combination of understanding, conceptualization, and practical experience.

This textbook helps you to prepare for both your next exams and practical courses by combining theory with virtual lab simulations. With the “Labster Virtual Lab Experiments” book series you have the unique opportunity to apply your newly acquired knowledge in an interactive learning game that simulates common laboratory experiments. Try out different techniques and work with machines that you otherwise wouldn’t have access to. In this volume on “Basic Genetics” you will learn how to work in a laboratory with genetic background and the fundamental theoretical concepts of the following topics: Mendelian Inheritance Polymerase Chain Reaction Animal Genetics Gene Expression Gene Regulation In each chapter, you will be introduced to the basic knowledge as well as one virtual lab simulation with a true-to-life challenge. Following a theory section, you will be able to play the corresponding simulation. Each simulation includes quiz questions to reinforce your understanding of the covered topics. 3D animations will show you molecular processes not otherwise visible to the human eye. If you have purchased a printed copy of this book, you get free access to five simulations for the duration of six months. If you’re using the e-book version, you can sign up and buy access to the simulations at www.labster.com/springer. If you like this book, try out other topics in this series, including “Basic Biology”, “Basic Biochemistry”, and “Genetics of Human Diseases”.

An easy-to-understand, detail-by-detail explanation of basic Mendelian Genetics. Ideal for first- and second-year medical students, pediatric and ob/gyn clerks, advanced undergraduates, and genetic counseling graduate students. Key concepts are illustrated with clinical examples frequently encountered in courses in genetics and medical genetics, such as cystic fibrosis, Down's Syndrome, Neurofibromatosis, familial breast cancer, hereditary colon cancer, Becker Muscular Dystrophy, and sickle cell disease. Features special sections on prenatal genetics and common and cancer mutations.

I have for a number of years taught a course in population genetics for students interested in plant and animal breeding. The objective of the course has been to lay a foundation in population genetics for the concepts of quantitative genetics which are introduced in the last third of the course. I have not been able to find an appropriate text for this purpose. For a quarter of a century, Falconer's Introduction to Quantitative Genetics has been the standard, and excellent, text in that subject. For my purposes, however, this text is not sufficiently detailed in the population genetics basis for quantitative theory. A number of good texts in population genetics are available, of which Li's First Course in Population Genetics is didactically the best. But these texts are directed toward the genetics of natural populations, rather than domestic populations, breeding under human control. They also tend to treat quantitative genetics gingerly, if at all. I have therefore developed the present text from my teaching notes. The chapters of this book are labeled "Lectures". Each is intended to correspond approximately to the amount of material which can be covered in a 50-minute lecture. Divisions are, of course, dictated by the natural divisions of the subject matter, and the lectures are therefore not of uniform length. Nevertheless, in so far as possible, an attempt has been made to make the average length a lecture's worth.
