Featuring an introduction by Stephen Jay Gould, "Genetics and the Origin of Species" presents the first edition of Dobzhansky's groundbreaking and now classic inquiry into what has emerged as the most important single area of scientific inquiry in the twentieth century: biological theory of evolution. Genetics and the Origin of Species went through three editions (1937, 1941, and 1951) in which the importance accorded natural selection changed radically.

The first broad survey of the role of genetics in public health, with emphasis on the new molecular genetics.

Many diseases of the nervous system are difficult to treat but can be prevented when we have adequate genetic information. This new edition continues to provide comprehensive coverage of the genetics of neurological disorders. It conveys practical cl...


This international, edited book summarises the advances in human mitochondrial genetics made over the past decade and a half. In order to make sense of the diversity of mitochondrial disease the reader is first treated to a review of mitochondrial DNA metabolism and normal mitochondrial function. The core of the book details specific mitochondrial and nuclear mutations and the diseases they cause, whilst at the same time providing further insight into mitochondrial function. Later sections assess the role of cellular and animal models in advancing our understanding of mitochondrial diseases and the prospects for novel therapeutic strategies to combat these enigmatic disorders. Mitochondrial diseases are an increasingly recognised cause of inherited disease, most clinicians are now aware of this group of diseases and those involved in genetic counselling will recognise the need for a greater understanding of this group of disorders.

Your no-nonsense guide to genetics

With rapid advances in genomic technologies, genetic testing has become a key part of both clinical practice and research. Scientists are constantly discovering more about how genetics plays a role in health and disease, and healthcare providers are using this information to more accurately identify their patients' particular medical needs. Genetic information is also increasingly being used for a wide range of non-clinical purposes, such as exploring one's ancestry.

This new edition of Genetics For Dummies serves as a perfect course supplement for students pursuing degrees in the sciences. It also provides science-lovers of all skill levels with easy-to-follow and easy-to-understand information about this exciting and constantly evolving field.  This edition includes recent developments and applications in the field of genetics, such as:

  • Whole-genome and whole-exome sequencing
  • Precision medicine and pharmacogenetics
  • Direct-to-consumer genetic testing for health risks
  • Ancestry testing

Featuring information on some of the hottest topics in genetics right now, this book makes it easier than ever to wrap your head around this fascinating subject.
