Essentials of Genetics is derived from Klug and Cummings's highly successful Concepts of Genetics (1994), presenting a more succinct, less detailed overview of the discipline.

An historical perspective is maintained throughout the text as well as an emphasis on analysis and problem solving.From the Back Cover:
