Written by four well-respected and notable scientists affiliated with the University of Texas at Austin, this college-level textbook introduces the reader to the fundamental concepts of modern genetics. Clearly, much has changed in the field of modern genetics since this textbook was published, but it does give a glimpse into what scientists were working with at the time and reveals some of the gaps in their knowledge that they didn’t even know existed.
