Original Title: Encyclopedia Of Genetics"Breakthrough discoveries in the field of genetics have increased the general public's interest in the area. The Encyclopedia of Genetics was created to meet the demands of such users. The 172 articles range from 1,000 to 3,500 words and include key features such as a list of the defined words and a significance section that summarizes the article. The contributors give clear explanations of complex theories and methods aimed at the general reader. This is a unique resource to answer genetic questions from the non-scientific community."--"Outstanding reference sources 2000", American Libraries, May 2000.
