The book ‘Genetics’ is designed for the graduate students of Biotechnology, Botany, Life Sciences, Zoology, and Agriculture who have a paper in genetics. The book covers the different aspects of genetics in in 44 chapters; at the end of the book, a glossary of relevant terms and several appendices with useful information have been provided. The book traces the discoveries that culminated in the elucidation of inheritance of various characters of the organisms, discusses the salient features of cell division and its regulation, describes the discoveries of genetic material and the mechanisms of gene expression and regulation. In addition, the relevance of human genetics to human health, the behaviour of genes in random mating populations and the events leading to speciation have also been discussed. The book has been written in simple language in a style I followed for teaching to my students. The concepts have been explained with the help of suitable diagrams and every effort has been made to maintain readability and facilitate easy comprehension. It is expected to serve as the basic reading resource for the students of genetics and would be helpful in various competitive examinations.
