Description of Modern Genetic Analysis

As teachers of genetics and the authors of An Introduction to Genetic Analysis, we are aware of the quiet revolution in the way that genetics is taught to beginning students. Many instructors are finding that a strictly chronological, or historical, approach no longer fits their method of teaching genetics, nor does it meet their students' needs. More and more, molecular genetics is being introduced earlier in the course and integrated with phenotypic and genotypic analysis.

This Book 'Modern Genetic Analysis' was written for instructors and students who need a textbook that supports the "DNA first" approach. Regardless of whether the presentation is traditional or modern, it is essential that students learn to think like geneticists. Thus, as in An Introduction to Genetic Analysis, the focus is on teaching students to analyze data and draw conclusions.
