Reigning nonfiction cartoonist Larry Gonick and microbiologist Mark Wheelis ease the way through Mendelian genetics, molecular biology and the basics of genetic engineering in this fantastic book. Having trouble deciphering your genetic code? Do dominant genes make you feel recessive? Have you ever asked yourself: Are spliced genes the same as mended Levis? Watson and Crick? Aren't they a team of British detectives? Plant sex? Can they do that? Is Genetic Mutation the name of one of those heavy metal bands? Asparagine? Which of the four food groups is that in? Then you need The Cartoon Guide to Genetics to explain the important concepts of classical and modern genetics - it's not only educational, it's funny too! Gonick's drawings range from a moderately detailed look at ribosomes in action to loony pictures of dancing scientists, talking peas and opinionated fruit flies.
