In ancient times, people had no idea how or why ti was that children resembled their parents. These days we know that characteristics like height and eye color are passed along in families through the genetic code. Our understanding of genetics has fundamentally changed medicine, agriculture, and even crime solving! Genes and Genetics will tell you everything you need to know about those tiny but powerful things called chromosomes.
The six-volume set, The Science of the Human Body, provides readers with all the information they need to understand how we function. Topics include our vital bodily systems, organ transplants, genetic modifications, common and exotic illnesses, and the fight against deadly pandemics. Taken together, the set provides a comprehensive foundation of knowledge for students of human biology.
