Genetics begins with an evaluation of evolution, genomes, and genes. It looks at the Central Dogma of molecular biology. Other topics covered include genome structure, organization, and variation; descent and modification; single-gene traits; mendelian genetics; x-linked genes; sex chromosomes; and the inheritance of multiple genes. The book also looks at genes in chromosomes, genetic maps, human genetic mapping, exchange, evolution, and transcription. Finally, there are chapters on networks of gene regulation, genetic analysis of cellular processes, genetics of population, and metagenomes.
