More Description

Extremely student-friendly and completely relevant, HUMAN GENETICS AND SOCIETY, First Edition, makes the basic concepts and processes of genetics real by addressing issues that relate directly to your life, enabling you to make informed decisions. Fully integrating science and social issues, the text presents the basics of human genetics in the context of the issues that result from the flood of products, services, and techniques developed from genetic knowledge. It challenges you to think critically in your personal and professional decisions with regard to genetics. Written for the nonscience major, the text presumes no prior biology instruction. Clear and accessible, it doesn't get bogged down in complicated scientific and quantitative details but does provide a wide array of examples, case studies, and applications to personal and social concerns. Its emphasis on relevant issues equips you with the tools and knowledge to make informed decisions related to your health as well as public policy. You also learn how to recognize genetic disorders and become familiar with their causes and patterns of inheritance. Less rigorous than texts designed for science majors, HUMAN GENETICS AND SOCIETY, First Edition, is conceptually driven and provides case studies and readings that focus on issues.
