Book Summary:

This book of Genetics has been developed for B.Sc. students of all Indian Universities. But it will also serve the purpose of the students of B.Sc. (Hons.), M.Sc. Zoology, Botany, Microbiology and Biotechnology. Students preparing for Medical entrance exams, I.F.S., P.C.S. and I.A.S., etc. would also be benefited by this book.

Key Features:

The main features of the book are as follows:

1. Open new vistas for the readers and it will serve them immensely. By the help of numerous figures, many tables, boxes and coloured photographs, authors have tried to serve a balanced account of Genetics.

2. Students preparing for Medical entrance exams, I.F.S., P.C.S. and I.A.S., etc. would also be benefited by this book.
