About

Overview

This new edition of Genetics provides a thorough presentation of genetics in the 21st century, including foundational concepts, key scientific and historical themes, ethical issues, and advances in the science. Selected ebook entries contain animated videos created by the Stated Clearly team of artists and scientists, plus Associated Press videos that highlight genetics topics within the context of scientific research, current events, and political considerations. Stated Clearly creates short animations to explain scientific concepts in a lucid and visually engaging manner. They work in tandem with more than twenty PhD scientists and partner with the Center for Chemical Evolution, NASA, Emory University, and Georgia Tech. The Associated Press (AP) is a world leader in news footage.
