The Usborne Introduction to Genes and DNA

By Anna Claybourne (Usborne Publishing)

“…clear and concise descriptions of the key concepts in the genetic revolution, wrapped round with lavish illustrations and slick photographs. You’ll find the odd interesting nugget even if you are thoroughly familiar with the material…”
New Scientist, 21 June 2003

“This beautifully produced book uses striking pictures and clear explanations to provide a introduction to genetics that will interest adults as well as children… As well as covering reproduction, inheritance and the history of genetics, the book looks at genetic medicine, genetic engineering, cloning and designer babies. It also takes a balanced look at the ethical issues surrounding genetics.”
