Inside the Basics of Genetics
Genetics can be a difficult subject for some. The terminology itself can be confusing, especially when it's presented with little background information on the subject. This volume, however, endeavors to simplify the complex yet fascinating world of genetics for teen readers. The text examines two of the greatest contributors to the field—Gregor Mendel and Charles Darwin. The contributions of these two visionary scientists was built upon by future scientists. Readers will be delighted to learn about the history of genetics and will use that to springboard into a finer understanding of the state of the field of genetics today. Diagrams and illustrations help readers make sense of a potentially difficult topic.
