In labs, clinics, and companies around the world, an amazing revolution in our understanding of life has taken place. This revolution makes the news nearly every day and has dramatically changed the way medicine is practiced, but the headlines often seem mysterious and scary. Today, discoveries are made at such a dizzying pace that even scientists - let alone the public - can barely keep up. The six-volume "Genetics and Evolution" set aims to explain what is happening in biological research and put things into perspective for high school students and the general public. Providing up-to-date research as well as a basis for understanding all aspects of life, this new full-color set highlights key issues in the field of biology and how genetics and evolution are drawn together in a powerful way. Providing a detailed look at how these sciences are likely to shape science and society in the future, the books in this accessible set aim to fill an important niche by connecting the history of scientific ideas and methods to their impact on today's research. This set is ideal for high school and college students interested in these exciting areas of scientific research.
