Genetic Analysis

Genes, Genomes, and Networks in Eukaryotes

Third Edition

Philip Meneely

  • The logic and strategy of genetic analysis in one semester shows you how the combined power of molecular biology, genetics, and genomics can be applied to solve biological questions.
  • Uses established principles of genetics as methods to analyse larger problems in biology.
  • Illustrates the conceptual basis of key analytical tools with carefully selected examples from a range of model organisms, and encourages the reader to look beyond the examples to see how these tools can be used to probe a wide range of biological problems.
  • Covers the latest and most powerful experimental tools to provide a state-of-the-art review of the field, giving insights into gene networks and interactions.
  • Text boxes and extended case studies enable the reader to fully get to grips with how genetic tools can be used to understand biological systems.
  • The online resources feature additional materials for teachers and students, enhancing the educational value of the text.

New to this Edition:

  • A new chapter on genome editing with focus on the CRISPR-Cas 9 system
  • New content on the analysis of gene activity using temperature-sensitive mutations and mosaics
  • Increased coverage of epigenetics, updated with the latest developments in the field
  • Expanded use of case studies to guide students through examples of genetic analysis
  • A new learning feature called 'Literature Link' connects the chapter content to cutting-edge research
