Our growing understanding of the behavior of genes and genomes at a molecular level has enabled us to develop new tools for exploring how life operates at the level of genetics. Toolboxes throughout the book introduce many of the key experimental tools and techniques that are used to reveal more about the structure and function of genetic systems, and the way they evolve over time.

Some of the Toolbox panels are featured below. We'll be adding new examples over the coming months. To get the latest sample content, bookmark our site, or sign up for updates.
