Genetics by Anna Claybourne
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Science in Focus is a broad based series that gives a clear introduction to curriculum topics and is an easy reference tool for research. The clear, well-written text is generously illustrated with large colour photographs and diagrams. Fact and History boxes extend the information, and evidence boxes suggest practical investigations. Genetics explores one of the fastest growing areas of science. It examines topics that may affect us all such as DNA fingerprinting, it looks at what it is and why it is carried out. It explores genetic engineering and the untold benefits it could bring or the massive problems it may cause. How are researchers tackling genetic diseases and the growing use of bio-engineered medicines? These and many more issues are explored in this fascinating look at genetics in the twenty-first century.
