    "Every thing I wanted to know about Genetics"
    What did you love best about The Basics of Genetics?

    For some time I have been looking for a primer on genetics that would prepare me to navigate the technical vocabulary and many concepts of that science that I encounter everyday in articles, news, and lectures. Dr. Dyer's set of lectures was the perfect answer. She repeatedly moved from metaphor to concept to label letting the listener first understand and then retain the many facets of genetics. Now I understand the relationships between bases, dna, rna, chromosomes, and alleles. Not since my grandmother taught me the differences of cities, states, and countries when I was five, have felt so satisfied by an explanation. Thanks Dr. Dyer.
