Complex concepts made manageable!
Build the foundation you need to understand the science of genetics and its growing role in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders.

Confidently tackle the basics of genetic inheritance, the influence of somatic and germline mutations, the multifactorial relationship of gene-environment interactions, and the foundation of ethical behavior. Everyday language makes these often-intimidating topics easy to understand, while clearly defined principles, logical explanations, illustrations, tables, and clinical examples ensure you master the material.
