Decoding the Language of Genetics

David Botstein

A Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press Publication

Genetics is the science of biological inference from regularities in patterns of inheritance. It is a fundamentally analytical enterprise. It has become clear, especially in the last 50 years, that many important things about biology can be learned using genetic analysis that cannot be learned any other way. Genetic analysis is the best window we have into the workings of evolution. This book is organized around the specialized words that capture the most fundamental genetic abstractions. It conveys the meaning and utility of the essential and helpful ones as they are used today.
