With its modern chapter organization and new “Focus on Genomics” boxes, iGenetics : A Molecular Approach reflects the increasing molecular emphasis in today’s experimental study of genes while helping readers develop problem-solving skills and an appreciation for classic experiments. Although molecular topics are presented first, instructors can assign the chapters in any sequence. Pedagogical features such as chapter-opening “Key Questions” and strategically placed “Keynotes” help readers to efficiently master genetic concepts. The Genetics Place Companion Website contains interactive iActivities and narrated animations that help readers visualize and understand processes and concepts that are illustrated in the book.

Genetics: An Introduction, DNA: The Genetic Material, DNA Replication, Gene Control of Proteins, Gene Expression: Transcription,Gene Expression: Translation, DNA Mutation, DNA Repair, and Transposable Elements, Structural Genomics, Functional and Comparative Genomics, Recombinant DNA Technology, Mendelian Genetics, Chromosomal Basis of Inheritance, Extensions of and Deviations from Mendelian Genetic Principles, Genetic Mapping in Eukaryotes, Genetics of Bacteria and Bacteriophages, Variations in Chromosome Structure and Number, Regulation of Gene Expression in Bacteria and Bacteriophages, Regulation of Gene Expression in Eukaryotes, Genetic Analysis of Development, Genetics of Cancer, Quantitative Genetics, Population Genetics, Molecular Evolution Intended for those interested in learning the basics of genetics

About the Author

Peter J. Russell received his B.Sc. in Biology from the University of Sussex, U.K., in 1968 and his Ph.D. in Genetics from Cornell University in 1972. He then joined the Biology faculty of Reed College in 1972 where he is currently Professor of Biology. Russell teaches an upper-division genetics and molecular biology lecture/laboratory course, the genetics section of the introductory biology course, an advanced seminar course in molecular virology, and advises senior thesis research students. He is also the author of a number of successful biology and genetics textbooks, including iGenetics: A Molecular Approach.


He is currently studying the molecular genetics of gene expression of a plant pathogenic RNA virus, using the budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, as the model host. The research goals are to define the genes of the host that encode products required for the expression of a specific gene involved in aphid transmission of the virus. His earlier research involved studies of ribosome biosynthesis and the organization of and regulation of the number of ribosomal RNA genes in Neurospora.

1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle edition full of errors July 7 2011
By alexofviamarina - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Buyer beware! Do not buy the kindle edition if you have to do book problems. The end of chapter problems were not imported correctly and will make you look like a fool in your class. I had to return my kindle edition because of the issues. Basically, fractions and font case were screwed up in the import, making it impossible to get correct answer when doing genetic problems.

3.0 out of 5 stars Explanations are too technical July 4 2012
By Bob's Beekeeping - Published on Amazon.com
Although the book covers all the necessary topics for an undergraduate course in genetics, the text is complex and difficult to understand. A far better book is Genetics: Analysis & Principles by Brooker, which contains far less jargon and is better written, making it a more readable and understandable book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor genetics textbook Jan. 1 2012
By redraider18 - Published on Amazon.com
I was required to use this book for an undergraduate genetics course. I found this book to be overly dense and obfuscating. It approached the subject as if it were a graduate/doctoral level genetics class. It has the unique ability to muddle even the basic concepts of genetics. The book itself is difficult to read. The pictures and diagrams were poorly structured such that if you read a paragraph detaling some graphic illustration, the graphic would be found on the next page. This is something I utterly despise in textbooks, especially science textbooks.

I rate textbooks based on their ease of reading, the entertainment I derive from reading them, and how much I learn from reading them. Rarely do I find biology/medical textbooks to be a chore to read. This is the worst one I have ever come across. I had to force myself to read this book because I found it so awful. I thoroughly enjoy the subject of genetics but this book, and the professor, left such a rotten taste in my mouth that I didn't return to the subject, either for school or for leisure, for a year. It should be an academic crime that such an amazing and beautiful subject could be treated so horrendously and flippantly as it has been done here.

I hope your institution chooses a better genetics textbook.

Good book, easy to read and well explained answers. It's just a little expensive for an answer book for a genetics course.
