Genetic Analysis : Genes, Genomes, and Networks in Eukaryotes Paperback
How do we know what role a particular gene has? How do some genes control the expression of others? How do genes interact to form gene networks? With its unique integration of genetics and molecular biology, Genetic Analysis probes fascinating questions such as these, detailing how our understanding of key genetic phenomena can be used to understand biological systems.
Opening with a brief overview of key genetic principles, model organisms, and epigenetics, the book goes on to explore the use of gene mutations and the analysis of gene expression and activity.
A discussion of the genetic structure of natural populations follows, before the interaction of genes during suppression and epistasis, how we study gene networks, and personalized genomics are considered.
Drawing on the latest experimental tools, including microarrays, RNAi screens, and bioinformatics approaches, Genetic Analysis provides a state-of-the-art review of the field, but in a truly student-friendly manner.

Review by amarcobio
Excellent! It covers genetic analysis with rigour. Unlike other genetics textbooks, this book focus more on how do we get to know genetic stuff rather than what we know. Genetics is not just about green peas and genome sequences, and this book makes this point clear, carefully explaining how do we characterize mutants, how do we account for interations, and how to study genetics in the most important model species. Text is clear, nicely written, and figures are very informative.
