Basic Genetics is a concise introductory textbook that focuses not only on understanding and explaining the main points of genetics, but also upon covering the required essential traditional subjects in the field. The main goal of this textbook is to help first year students who are taking their first course in human genetics to understand the different topics within genetics. It is of particular interest for those who are preparing themselves to study medicine or other medical sciences. This textbook presents only the essential required information. Some of the different subjects included in the eight chapters are: cell cycle and cellular division, Mendelian principles of heredity, the molecular basis of genetic material, gene expression and gene expression control, genetic variations and genetic engineering, as well as human genetics. In addition, Basic Genetics contains multiple choice questions covering each topic and their answers. These questions are absolutely essential for students' self- assessment. These different topics of basic genetics have also been illustrated by simple diagrams in full color.
