The new edition of Introducing Genetics is a clear, concise, and accessible guide to inheritance and variation in individuals and populations. It first establishes the principles of Mendelian inheritance and the nature of chromosomes, before tackling quantitative and population genetics. The final three chapters introduce the molecular mechanisms that underlie genetics, including the techniques responsible for the current genetic revolution. As genetics affects all living organisms, examples are taken from insects, plants, animals, and humans. Each chapter ends with a set of problems to help the reader develop their understanding of genetics.

Known world-wide as the standard introductory text to this important and exciting area, the sixth edition of Gene Cloning and DNA Analysis addresses new and growing areas of research whilst retaining the philosophy of the previous editions. Assuming the reader has little prior knowledge of the subject, its importance, the principles of the techniques used and their applications are all carefully laid out, with over 250 clearly presented four-colour illustrations. In addition to a number of informative changes to the text throughout the book, the final four chapters have been significantly updated and extended to reflect the striking advances made in recent years in the applications of gene cloning and DNA analysis in biotechnology. Gene Cloning and DNA Analysis remains an essential introductory text to a wide range of biological sciences students; including genetics and genomics, molecular biology, biochemistry, immunology and applied biology. It is also a perfect introductory text for any professional needing to learn the basics of the subject. All libraries in universities where medical, life and biological sciences are studied and taught should have copies available on their shelves. "… the book content is elegantly illustrated and well organized in clear-cut chapters and subsections… there is a Further Reading section after each chapter that contains several key references… What is extremely useful, almost every reference is furnished with the short but distinct author's remark." –Journal of Heredity, 2007 (on the previous edition)

You are about to embark on an amazing journey of discovery. Th e study of life spans from the inner workings of cells to the complex interactions of entire ecosystems, through the information stored in DNA to the ways genetic information evolves over time. At the same time that our understanding of biology is growing in leaps and bounds, so too are great insights into how learners acquire new knowledge and skills. We are thrilled to join Scott Freeman on Biological Science, a book dedicated to active, research-based learning and to exploring the experimental evidence that informs what we know about biology. Th e next few pages highlight the features in this book and in MasteringBiology® that will help you succeed.

A wide range of microbiologists, molecular biologists, and molecular evolutionary biologists will find this new volume of singular interest. It summarizes the present knowledge about the structure and stability of microbial genomes, and reviews the techniques used to analyze and fingerprint them. Maps of approximately thirty important microbes, along with articles on the construction and relevant features of the maps are included. The volume is not intended as a complete compendium of all information on microbial genomes, but rather focuses on approaches, methods and good examples of the analysis of small genomes.

In many respects,w e understand the structure of the universeb etter than the workings of living cells. Scientists can calculate the age of the Sun and predict when it will cease to shine, but we cannot explain how it is that a human being may live for eighty years but a mouse for only two. We know the complete genomes equenceso f thesea nd many other speciesb, ut we still cannot predict how a cell will behave if we mutate a previously unstudied gene. Stars may be l0a3 times bigger, but cells are more complex, more intricately structured, and more astonishingp roducts of the laws of physicsa nd chemistry.T hrough heredity and natural selection, operating from the beginnings of life on Earth to the presentd ay-that is, for about 20Voo f the ageo f the universe-living cellsh ave been progressively refining and extending their molecular machinery and recording the results of their experiments in the genetic instructions they pass on to their progeny. With each edition of this book, we marvel at the new information that cell biologists have gathered in just a few years. But we are even more amazed and daunted at the sophistication of the mechanisms that we encounter. The deeper we probe into the cell,t he more we reafizeh ow much remainst o be understood. In the days of our innocence, working on the first edition, we hailed the identification of a single protein-a signal receptol say-as a great step forward' Now we appreciate that each protein is generally part of a complexwith many others, working together as a system, regulating one another's activities in subtle ways, and held in specific positions by binding to scaffold proteins that give the chemical factory a definite spatial structure. Genome sequencing has given us virtually complete molecular parts-lists for many different organisms; genetics and biochemistry have told us a great deal about what those parts are capable of individually and which ones interact with which others; but we have only the most primitive grasp of the dynamics of these biochemical systems, with all their interlocking control loops. Therefore, although there are great achievements to report, cell biologistsf ace eveng reaterc hallengesf or the future. In this edition, we have included new material on many topics, ranging from epigeneticsh, istonem odificationss, mall RNAs,a nd comparativeg enomicst,o geneticn oise,c ytoskeletadl lmamics,c ell-cyclec ontrol, apoptosis,s tem cells, and novel cancer therapies. As in previous editions, we have tried above all to give readers a conceptual framework for the mass of information that we now have about cells. This means going beyond the recitation of facts. The goal is to learn how to put the facts to use-to reason, to predict, and to control the behavior of living systems. To help readers on the way to an active understanding, we have for the first time incorporatede nd-of-chapterp roblems,w ritten by Iohn Wilson and Tim Hunt. These emphasize a quantitative approach and the art of reasoning from experiments.A companion volume, MolecularB iologyo f the CelI,F ifth Edition: TheP roblemsB ook0 SBN9 78-0-8153-4110-9b)y, t he samea uthors,g ivesc omplete answerst o thesep roblemsa nd alsoc ontainsm ore than 1700a dditional problems and solutions. A further major adjunct to the main book is the attached Media DVD-ROM disc.

Perhaps the biggest change is in the physical structure of the book. In an effort to make the standard Student Edition somewhat more portable, we are providing chapters 2r-25, covering multicellular systems, in electronic (pDF) form on the accompanying disc, while retaining in the printed volume chapters l-20, covering the core of the usual cell biology curriculum. But we should emphasize that the final chapters have been revised and updated as thoroughly as the rest of the book and we sincerely hope that they will be read!
