This lecture note discusses the principles
of genetics with application to the study of biological function at the level of
molecules, cells, and multicellular organisms, including humans. Topics covered
includes: structure and function of genes, chromosomes and genomes, biological
variation resulting from recombination, mutation, and selection, population
genetics, use of genetic methods to analyze protein function, gene regulation
and inherited disease.
Author(s): Prof. Chris Kaiser, Prof. Gerald Fink, Prof.
Leona Samson and Dr. Michelle Mischke

This book, Human
Genetic Diseases contains many diverse chapters, dealing with human genetic
diseases, methods to diagnose them, novel approaches to treat them and molecular
approaches and concepts to understand them. Although this book does not give a
comprehensive overview of human genetic diseases, and the sixteen book chapters
will be a valuable resource for researchers and students in different life and
The textbook Genomes, by Terence A.
Brown, is available online and provides insight into genomics with the
traditional approach to gene expression. The integrated approach of this book
provides a teaching resource for modern molecular biology.
Genes and Disease is a collection of
articles that discuss genes and the diseases that they cause. These genetic
disorders are organized by the parts of the body that they affect. As some
diseases affect various body systems, they appear in more than one chapter.
