Best place to get started on learning genetics?

Post by doganddisc on Wed Mar 14, 2012 10:35 pm

Does anyone have a good suggestion for the best place to get started on genetics? I've been reading a bunch of websites but information seems scattered.

Any books or websites that you recommend? Happy
Thank you!

There is a genetic book made by one of our own breeders. Let me look it up online and I will send u the link. Happy other then that- ask questions here. Quite a few members are vert good at genetics and good at explaining them.

Not sure if it's the same book others are talking about. But this is the one I've read to tatters. it's a good base to start with and it makes visualizing genetics really easy.

Highly recommend INTRODUCTORY MOUSE GENETICS by Elise Oppenheim, the book KAW is recommending. It's how I learned! Elise is a breeder who lives in Fairfax, VA, near me. Compassgirl on the forums. Really well explained in detail but not gobbledygook. Illustrations. Color chart for c-dilutes. Great book.
