for gene frequency stability in large populations, Relationship and inbreeding,
Estimation of breeding values, Inbreeding, crossing and bred structure,
Chromosomes and chromosome aberrations, Genetics on hair and coat colour in
mammals, Estimating- and biotechnology and disease resistance.
This lecture note
covers the following topics: The genetic structure of populations, Genetic
transmission in populations, The genetics of natural selection, Genetic drift,
Quantitative genetics, Molecular evolution, Phylogeography.
This lecture note covers the following
topics: Mendelian inheritance, Mendelian genetics, Meiosis and the Chromosome

Genetic interaction, Population genetics, Genetic diseases, Developmental
Advanced Genetics provides an overview of
basic concepts and techniques in genetics and their use in answering fundamental
questions in biology. The lectures focus primarily on studies carried out in
yeast, C. elegans, Drosophila, mouse, and humans to illustrate the power of
genetics as an experimental tool.

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.
From the National Center for Biotechnology Information,
Genes and Disease is an online 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.
