This textbook introduces genetic analysis and its use in various areas of research. This edition has new learning outcomes, replaces messages with key concepts, and has new coverage of modern genetic analysis, with a rewritten introductory chapter that focuses on modern applications in biology, evolution, medicine, and agriculture. It has a more gradual introduction to classical genetic dissection, a new introduction to forward genetics and the role of genetic analysis in identifying traits of single-gene inheritance, a rewritten explanation of the use of chi-square analysis, and new genomic techniques like RNA-seq and exome sequencing and the ENCODE project. It updates discussion of epigenetics and chromatin remodeling and discusses genome surveillance. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
