Details

After only 200 years, the field of genetics is young compared to how long plants and animals have inhabited the earth. What was once the scientific study of inherited traits has come to include the study of everything related to genes, the "building blocks of life," including their functions, structures, interactions, and sequences. Plant Genetics gives a detailed look at the genetics of plants through historical scientific achievements, discussions of genetic diversity, agricultural practices, and comparisons to animal and human genetics. A brief history provides a sketch of two genetic pioneers, Gregor Mendel and Barbara McClintock, who have left everlasting impressions on the field of plant genetics. A technical overview explains basic genetic terminology and fundamental processes. Details of some widely used methods in biotechnology are also included in an attempt to demystify certain aspects of genetic engineering. This reference is a vital tool for students and teachers.
