The twentieth century has been called “the genetic century,” and rightly so: The genetic revolution began with the rediscovery of Gregor Mendel’s work in 1900, Watson and Crick elucidated the structure of DNA in 1953, and the first draft of the human genome sequence was announced in February 2001. As dramatic and important as these advances are, however, they will almost certainly pale when compared to those still awaiting us. Building on foundations laid over the last one hundred years, the twenty-first century will likely see discoveries that profoundly affect our understanding of our genetic nature, and greatly increase our ability to manipulate genes to shape ourselves and our environment. As more is learned, the pace of discovery will only increase, revealing not only the identities of increasing numbers of genes, but more importantly, how they function, interact, and, in some cases, cause disease. As the importance of genetics in our daily lives has grown, so too has the importance of its place in the modern science classroom: In the study of biology, genetics has become the central science. Gene Cloning & DNA Analysis Provide encyclopedia to students and teachers the most comprehensive and accessible reference available for understanding this rapidly changing field A Comprehensive Reference In the four volumes of Genetics, students will find detailed coverage of every topic included in standard and advanced biology courses, from fundamental concepts to cutting-edge applications, as well as topics so new that they have not yet become a part of the regular curriculum. The set explores the history, theory, technology, and uses (and misuses) of genetic knowledge. Topics span the field from “classical” genetics to molecular genetics to population genetics. Students and teachers can use the set to reinforce classroom lessons about basic genetic processes, to expand on a discussion of a special topic, or to learn about an entirely new idea.Genetic Disorders and Social Issues Many advances in genetics have had their greatest impact on our understanding of human health and disease. One of the most important areas of research is in the understanding of complex diseases, such as cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, in which genes and environment interact to produce or prevent disease. Genetics devotes more than two dozen entries to both singlegene and complex genetic disorders, offering the latest understanding
