Although one of the strengths of this book lies in it being an easy reference guide, thanks to a reliable and comprehensive index, sometimes the change between body text and boxed summaries or definitions is somewhat abrupt and could have been designed in a more visually appealing : Friedhelm Hildebrandt.

Basic Genetic Concepts & Terms 1. Genetics: what is it. •t Wha is genetics. – “Genetics is the study of heredity, the process in which a parent passes certain genes onto their children.”. Advanced Genetics provides an overview of basic concepts and techniques in genetics and their use in answering fundamental questions in biology.

The lectures focus primarily on studies carried out in yeast, C. elegans, Drosophila, mouse, and humans to illustrate the power of genetics as an experimental tool. Genetics is a branch of biology concerned with the study of genes, genetic variation, and heredity in organisms.

Though heredity had been observed for millennia, Gregor Mendel, a scientist and Augustinian friar working in the 19th century, was the first to study genetics scientifically.

Mendel studied “trait inheritance”, patterns in the way traits are handed down from parents to offspring. 1 Basic Concepts of Human Genetics • The genetic information of an individual is contained in 23 pairs of chromosomes. Every human cell contains the 23 pair of chromosomes.

• One pair is called sex chromosomes Male: XY Female: XX • Other 22 pairs of homologous chromosomes are called autosomes. • The autosome chromosome pairs are called homologous Size: KB.

Human genetics is the study of the human genome and how genes are transmitted through generations. The human genome consists of 23 pairs of chromosomes (22 pairs of homologous chromosomes and one pair of sex chromosomes), each containing genes that code for proteins within the cell.

On all homologous chromosome pairs, there are two forms of the same gene that are known as alleles. 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.
