Inside Modern Genetics
Genes are the very building blocks of life—and genetics is the study of those building blocks and how they're passed on. But how can such tiny things affect so much? This set examines the complicated role of modern genetics in our understanding of life on Earth, from DNA and RNA to evolution and taxonomy. Readers will gain a better understanding of the many aspects of this important science, its role in the greater field of biology, and how it overlaps many other sciences and practical studies.
