Genetics is fascinating field of Biological Science that offers a lot of scope for the welfare of mankind. While teaching the subject, I became aware of the need for a simple book which could promote the understanding of the principles of Genetics among the students. This book is a complete introductory note containing divergent topics of Genetics under one cover. The subject has been presented in the sequence in which the discoveries in the Science of Genetics were made commencing with the Mendelian Genetics covering Cytogenetic. Molecular Genetics and Population Genetics and culminating with the Applied Genetics. The text material is arranged in around 37 chapters. Several examples and illustrations have been incorporated in all chapters. May thought provoking questions and unsolved problems have been provide at the end of the chapters to enable the student to review the grasp on the subject and to serve as an aid for better understanding of the subject. The book also includes a comprehensive glossary on the subject.
