Health Conditions Learn about the signs and symptoms, causes, and inheritance of more than 1, health conditions with a genetic basis.

    Human matings, like those of experimental organisms, show inheritance patterns both of the type discovered by Mendel (autosomal inheritance) and of sex linkage. Because controlled experimental crosses cannot be made with humans, geneticists must resort to scrutinizing records in the hope that informative matings have been made by chance. Such a scrutiny of records of matings is called . Coverage of the pioneers of modern genetics including Mendel and his peas, Watson and Crick and the double helix, Wexler and her search for the gene that causes Huntington's disease, and contemporary scientists struggling to map and sequence all , genes in human DNA. The text addresses mRNA, Phenylalanine, etc.; the material is technical, poorly supplemented by anecdotal information, e.g.
