|Series Title:||Colloquium series on the genetic basis of human disease, 6.|
Explores the exciting discoveries in genetics and molecular biology. This volume takes the reader on a journey to explore the frontiers of genetic diversity, gene cloning, the human journey, and the human genome project. The book is targeted at undergraduate non-majors and also as a "companion" to a standard genetics textbook for biology majors.
