This advanced textbook teaches the theory and practice of molecular genetic analysis to senior undergraduates and graduates studying genetics, molecular biology and cell biology.

It uses a case study approach, with the yeast Saccharomyces as the model genetic organism, to explain the theory and practice of molecular genetic analysis. It provides information to enable readers to apply the approach to their own research project.
