Genetics: Analysis and Principles emphasizes the scientific method to give students the insight needed to develop scientific reasoning skills. Thirty-six text-integrated experiments in transmission and molecular genetics follow the five-step scientific method as they show students the "how" (experimental procedures) and "why" (the underlying scientific principles) behind important experiments that created the current body of genetics knowledge. Chapter by chapter, students see what it is that geneticists actually do how they conduct experiments, collect data, and use problem-solving skills to interpret that data. The text challenges students to think scientifically and rely on their own careful analysis of the data scientists have collected. As a result, students experience genetics as the exciting, dynamic science that it is.

This book is titled Genetics: Principles and Analysis, Fourth Edition, because it embodies our belief that a good course in genetics should maintain the right balance between two important aspects of the science. The first aspect is that genetics is a body of knowledge pertaining to genetic transmission, function, and mutation. This constitutes the Principles. The second aspect is that genetics is an experimental approach, or a kit of "tools," for the study of biological processes such as development or behavior. This is Analysis. The overall aim of Genetics: Principles and Analysis, Fourth Edition, is to provide a clear, comprehensive, rigorous, and balanced introduction to genetics at the college level. It is a guide to learning a critically important and sometimes difficult subject. The rationale of the book is that any student claiming a knowledge of genetics must: • Understand the basic processes of gene transmission, mutation, expression, and regulation; • Be able to think like a geneticist at the elementary level of being able to formulate genetic hypotheses, work out their consequences, and test the results against observed data; • Be able to solve problems of several types, including problems that ask the student to verbalize genetic principles in his or her own words, single-concept exercises that require application of definitions or the basic principles of genetics, genetic analysis in which several concepts must be applied in logical order, and quantitative problems that call for some numerical calculation; • Gain some sense of the social and historical context in which genetics has developed and is continuing to develop; and • Have some familiarity with the genetic resources and information that are available through the Internet. Genetics: Principles and Analysis, Fourth Edition, incorporates many special features to help students achieve these learning goals. The text is clearly and concisely written in a somewhat relaxed prose style without being chummy or excessively familiar. Each chapter is headed by a list of Principles that are related at numerous points to the larger whole. Each chapter contains two or three Connections in which the text material is connected to excerpts of classic papers that report key experiments in genetics or that raise important social, ethical, or legal issues in genetics. Each Connection has a brief introduction of its own, explaining the importance of the experiment and the historical context in which it was carried out. At the end of each chapter is a complete Summary, Key Terms, GeNETics on the web exercises that guide students in the use of Internet resources in genetics, and several different types and levels of Problems. These features are discussed individually below. In recent decades, both the amount of genetic knowledge and its rate of growth have exploded. Many of the new discoveries have personal and social relevance through applications of genetics to human affairs in prenatal diagnosis, testing for carriers, and identification of genetic risk factors for complex traits, such as breast cancer and heart disease. There are also ethical controversies: Should genetic manipulation be used on patients for the treatment of disease? Should human fetuses be used in research? Should human beings be cloned? There are also social controversies—for example, when insurance companies exclude coverage of people because of their inherited risks of certain diseases. Inspired in part by the controversies and the publicity, many of today's students come to a course in genetics with great enthusiasm. The challenges for the teacher are: • To sustain this enthusiasm; • To help motivate a desire to understand the principles of genetics in a comprehensive and rigorous way; • To guide students in gaining an understanding that genetics is not only a set of principles but also an experimental approach to solving a wide range of biological problems; and • To help students learn to think about genetic problems and about the wider social and ethical issues arising from genetics. While addressing these challenges in Principles and Analysis, we have also tried to show the beauty, logical clarity, and unity of the subject. Endlessly fascinating, genetics is the material basis of the continuity of life. Chapter Organization In order to help the student keep track of the main issues and avoid being distracted by details, each chapter begins with a list of the Principles that provide the main focus of the chapter. There is also an Outline, showing step by step the path along the way. An opening paragraph gives an overview of the chapter, illustrates the subject with some specific examples, and shows how the material is connected to genetics as a whole. The text makes liberal use of numbered lists and "bullets" in order to help students organize their learning, as well as summary statements set off in special type in order to emphasize important principles. Each chapter ends with a Summary and list of Key Terms as well as the Problems. There is a Page xvi Concise Dictionary of Genetics at the end of the book for students to check their understanding of the Key Terms or look up any technical terms they may have forgotten. The Dictionary includes not only the Key Terms but also genetic terms that students are likely to encounter in exploring the Internet or in their further reading. The Dictionary also includes page references for terms defined in the text. Contents The organization of the chapters is that favored by the majority of instructors who teach genetics. It is the organization we use in our own courses. An important feature is the presence of an introductory chapter providing a broad overview of genes—what they are, how they function, how they change by mutation, and how they evolve through time. Today, most students learn about DNA in grade school or high school; in our teaching, we have found it rather strange to pretend that DNA does not exist until the middle of the term. The introductory chapter serves to connect the more advanced concepts that students are about to learn with what they already know. It also serves to provide each student with a solid framework for integrating the material that comes later. Throughout each chapter, there is a balance between observation and theory, between principle and concrete example, and between challenge and motivation. Molecular, classical, and evolutionary genetics are integrated throughout. A number of points related to organization and coverage should be noted: • Chapter 1 is an overview of genetics designed to bring students with disparate backgrounds to a common level of understanding. This chapter enables classical, molecular, and evolutionary genetics to be integrated in the rest of the book. Included in Chapter 1 are the basic concepts of genetics: trait, gene, genotype, phenotype, gene interaction, and so forth. Chapter 1 also includes a discussion of the experimental evidence that DNA is the genetic material, as well as a description of DNA structure and how DNA codes for proteins. • Chapters 2 through 4 are the core of Mendelian genetics, including segregation and independent assortment, the chromosome theory of heredity, mitosis and meiosis, linkage and chromosome mapping, and tetrad analysis in fungi. Also included is the basic probability framework of Mendelian genetics and the testing of genetic models by means of the chisquare test. An important principle of genetics, too often ignored or given inadequate treatment, is that of the complementation test and how complementation differs from segregation or other genetic principles. Chapter 2 includes a clear and concise description of complementation, with examples, showing how complementation is used in genetic analysis to group mutations into categories corresponding to genes. This chapter also introduces the use of molecular markers, especially with reference to human genetic analysis, because these are the principal types of genetic markers often used in modern genetics. • Chapters 5 and 6 deal with the molecular structure and replication of DNA and with the molecular organization of chromosomes. A novel feature is a description of how basic research that revealed the molecular mechanisms of DNA replication ultimately led to such important practical applications as DNA sequencing and the polymerase chain reaction. This example illustrates the value of basic research in leading, often quite unpredictably, to practical applications. The chapter on chromosome structure also includes a discussion of repetitive DNA sequences in eukaryotic genomes, including transposable elements. • Chapter 7 covers the principles of cytogenetics, including variation in chromosome number and the chromosome mechanics of deletions, duplications, inversions, and translocations. Also included is the subject of the human genome with special reference to human chromosome number and structure and the types of aberrations that are found in human chromosomes. • Chapter 8 deals with the principles of genetics in prokaryotes with special emphasis on E. coli and temperate and virulent bacteriophages. There is an extensive discussion of mechanisms of genetic recombination in microbes, including transformation, conjugation, transduction, and the horizontal transfer of genes present in plasmids, such as F' plasmids. • Chapter 9 focuses on recombinant DNA and genome analysis. Included are the use of restriction enzymes and vectors in recombinant DNA, cloning strategies, site-directed mutagenesis, "reverse genetics" (the production of genetically defined, transgenic animals and plants), and applications of genetic engineering. Also discussed are methods used in the analysis of complex genomes, such as the human genome, in which a gene that has been localized by genetic mapping to a region of tens of millions of base pairs must be isolated in cloned form and identified. • Chapters 10 through 12 deal with molecular genetics in the strict sense. These chapters include the principles of gene expression, gene regulation, and the genetic control of development. The chapter on development focuses especially on genetic analysis of development in nematodes (Caenorhabditis elegans) and Drosophila, and there is a thorough examination of the exciting new work on the genetic basis of floral development in Arabidopsis thaliana. Page xvii • Chapter 13 covers the molecular details of mutation and the effects of mutagens, including new information on the genetic effects of the Chernobyl nuclear accident. It also covers the rapidly growing field of DNA repair mechanisms, as well as the molecular mechanisms of recombination. • Chapter 14 covers organelle genetics. • Chapters 15 and 16 deal with population and evolutionary genetics. The discussion of population genetics includes DNA typing in criminal investigations and paternity testing. The material on quantitative genetics includes a discussion of methods by which particular genes influencing quantitative traits (QTLs, or quantitative-trait loci) may be identified and mapped by linkage analysis. QTL mapping is presently one of the most important approaches for identifying the genetic basis of human disease. • Chapter 17, entitled the Genetics of Biorhythms and Behavior, illustrates the genetic analysis of behavior with experimental models, including chemotaxis in bacteria, mating behavior in Drosophila, and learning in laboratory rodents. This chapter also includes a section on mad cow disease and its relation to the molecular basis of biological rhythms. There is also a section on the genetic determinants of human behavior with examples of the approach using "candidate" genes that led to the identification of the "natural Prozac" polymorphism in the human serotonin transporter gene. Integrated throughout the book are frequent references to human genetics, including sections on the fragile-X syndrome, imprinting, the genetic basis of cancer, expansion of unstable repeats in diseases such as Huntington disease, the relationship of DNA repair enzymes to hereditary colon cancer, the controversial mitochondrial "Eve," genetic diseases associated with defects in biorhythms, and many other special topics, including the human genome project. Connections A unique special feature of this book is found in boxes called Connections. Each chapter has two or three of these boxes. They are our way of connecting genetics to the world outside the classroom. All of the Connections include short excerpts from the original literature of genetics, usually papers, each introduced with a short explanatory passage. Many of the Connections are excerpts from classic papers, such as Mendel's paper, but by no means all of the "classic" papers are old papers. More than a quarter were published more recently than 1980, including the paper in which the cloning of the sheep Dolly was reported. The pieces are called Connections because each connects the material in the text to something that broadens or enriches its implications. Some of the Connections raise issues of ethics in the application of genetic knowledge, social issues that need to be addressed, or issues related to the proper care of laboratory animals. They illustrate other things as well. Because each Connection names the place where the research was carried out, the student will learn that great science is done in many universities and research institutions throughout the world. Some of the pieces were published originally in French, others in German. These appear in English translation. In papers that use outmoded or unfamiliar terminology, or that use archaic gene symbols, we have substituted the modern equivalent because the use of a consistent terminology in the text and in the Connections makes the material more accessible to the student. Genetics on the Internet More than in most fields of biology, genetic resources and genetic information are abundant on the Internet. The most useful sites are not always easy to find. A recent search of Internet sites using the Alta Vista search engine and the keyword genetics yielded about 500,000 hits. Most of these are of limited usefulness, but quite a few are invaluable to the student and to the practicing geneticist. The problem is how to find the really useful ones among the 500,000 sites. To make the genetic information explosion on the Internet available to the student, we have developed Internet Exercises, called GeNETics on the web, which make use of Internet resources. One reason for developing these exercises is that genetics is a dynamic science, and most of the key Internet resources are kept up to date. Continually updated, the Internet exercises introduce the newest discoveries as soon as they appear, and this keeps the textbook up to date as well. The addresses of the relevant genetic sites are not printed in the book. Instead, the sites are accessed through the use of key words that are highlighted in each exercise. The key words are maintained as hot links at the publisher's web site (http://www.jbpub.com/genetics) and are kept constantly up to date, tracking the address of each site if it should change. The use of key words also allows an innovation: one exercise in each chapter makes use of a mutable site that changes frequently in both the site accessed and the exercise. Students should look at the Internet Exercises. The instructor may wish to make short assignments from some of them, or use them for extra credit or as short term papers. We have included a suggested assignment for each of the exercises, but many instructors may wish to develop their own. We would be pleased to receive suggestions for new web exercises at the Jones and Bartlett home page: http://www.jbpub.com. Page xviii Problems Each chapter provides numerous problems for solution, graded in difficulty, for the students to test their understanding. The problems are of three different types: Review the Basics problems ask for genetic principles to be restated in the student's own words; some are matters of definition or call for the application of elementary principles. Analysis and Applications problems are more traditional types of genetic problems in which several concepts must be applied in logical order and often require some numerical calculation. The level of mathematics is that of arithmetic and elementary probability as it pertains to genetics. None of the problems uses mathematics beyond elementary algebra. Challenge Problems are similar to those in Analysis and Applications, but they are a degree more challenging, often because they require a more extensive analysis of data before the question can be answered. Supplementary Problems, in a special section at the end of the book, consist of over 300 additional problems. These include representatives of all three types of problems found at the ends of the chapters, and they are graded in difficulty. The Supplementary Problems may be used for additional assignments, more practice, or even as examination questions. The problems were generously contributed by geneticist Elena R. Lozovskaya of Harvard University, and they were selected and edited by the authors. Unlike the other problems, the solutions to the Supplementary Problems are not included in the answer section at the end of the book. Solutions are available for the instructor in the Test Bank and Solutions Manual. Guide to Problem Solving Each chapter contains a Guide to Problem Solving that demonstrates problems worked in full. The concepts needed to solve the problem, and the reasoning behind the answer, are explained in detail. The Guide to Problem Solving serves as another level of review of the important concepts used in working problems. It also highlights some of the most common mistakes made by beginning students and gives pointers on how the student can avoid falling into these conceptual traps. Solutions All Analysis and Applications Problems and all Challenge Problems are answered in full, with complete methods and explanations, in the answer section at the end of the book. The rationale for giving all the answers is that problems are valuable opportunities to learn. Problems that the student cannot solve are usually more important than the ones that can be solved, because the sticklers usually identify trouble spots, areas of confusion, or gaps in understanding. As often as not, the conceptual difficulties are resolved when the problem is worked in full and the correct approach explained, and the student seldom stumbles over the same type of problem again. Further Reading Each chapter also includes recommendations for Further Reading for the student who either wants more information or who needs an alternative explanation for the material presented in the book. Some additional "classic" papers and historical perspectives are included. Complete author lists are also given for a few Connections that had too many authors to cite individually in the text. Illustrations The art program is spectacular, thanks to the creative efforts of J/B Woolsey Associates, with special thanks to John Woolsey and Patrick Lane. Every chapter is richly illustrated with beautiful graphics in which color is used functionally to enhance the value of each illustration as a learning aid. The illustrations are also heavily annotated with "process labels" explaining step-by-step what is happening at each level of the illustration. These labels make the art inviting as well as informative. They also allow the illustrations to stand relatively independently of the text, enabling the student to review material without rereading the whole chapter. The art program is used not only for its visual appeal but also to increase the pedagogical value of the book: • Characteristic colors and shapes have been used consistently throughout the book to indicate different types of molecules—DNA, mRNA, tRNA, and so forth. For example, DNA is illustrated in any one of a number of ways, depending on the level of resolution necessary for the illustration, and each time a particular level of resolution is depicted, the DNA is shown in the same way. It avoids a great deal of potential confusion that DNA, RNA, and proteins are represented in the same manner in Chapter 17 as they are in Chapter 1. • There are numerous full-color photographs of molecular models in three dimensions; these give a strong visual reinforcement of the concept of macromolecules as physical entities with defined three-dimensional shapes and charge distributions that serve as the basis of interaction with other macromolecules. • The page design is clean, crisp, and uncluttered. As a result, the book is pleasant to look at and easy to read. Page xix Flexibility There is no necessary reason to start at the beginning and proceed straight to the end. Each chapter is a self-contained unit that stands on its own. This feature gives the book the flexibility to be used in a variety of course formats. Throughout the book, we have integrated classical and molecular principles, so you can begin a course with almost any of the chapters. Most teachers will prefer starting with the overview in Chapter 1, possibly as suggested reading, because it brings every student to the same basic level of understanding. Teachers preferring the Mendelearly format should continue with Chapter 2; those preferring to teach the details of DNA early should continue with Chapter 5. Some teachers are partial to a chromosomes-early format, which would suggest continuing with Chapter 3, followed by Chapters 2 and 4. A novel approach would be a genomesfirst format, which could be implemented by continuing with Chapter 9. Some teachers like to discuss mechanisms of mutation early in the course, and Chapter 13 can easily be assigned early. The writing and illustration program was designed to accommodate a variety of formats, and we encourage teachers to take advantage of this flexibility in order to meet their own special needs.
