4.0 out of 5 stars Epigenetics by Richard C Francis, 18 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Epigenetics: The Ultimate Mystery of Inheritance (Hardcover)
I have been away from genetics for over 40 years though I have read casually about developments. This book eased me back up to date to the point that I am ready to take on heavier tomes now. It is a bit tedious in explaining the basics of genetics for people like me, but I think an intelligent newcomer to the subject would find that a good thing and could cope. I would have preferred the notes to have been in small print at the bottom of each relevant page rather than in a separate section. I really couldn't cope with the heavy use of abbrevions throughout the text. Correctly upon the first mention, the phrase is explained and the abbreviation given, but much later in the text, it will crop up again, necessitating a break in thought as one has to search to be reminded what the abbreviation means, either in previous text or the index. After a break of some pages in the use of a term, it should be reintroduced. Nevertheless this was a useful book for me.
