This textbook has been designed to meet the needs of B.Sc. First Semester students of Zoology as per the Common Minimum Syllabus prescribed for all Uttar Pradesh State Universities and Colleges under the recommended National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020). It comprehensively covers two papers, namely Theory paper on Cytology, Genetics and Infectious Diseases and Practical paper on Cell Biology & Cytogenetics Lab. While this textbook gives a thorough overview of genetics and infectious diseases, it aptly covers important topics such as structure and functions of cell organelles, nucleus, cell cycle, cell division, human chromosomes & its pattern of inheritance. The text part also discusses the pathogenic organisms and the infectious diseases caused by them. Practical part covering Cell Biology & Cytogenetics Lab has been presented systematically to help students achieve sound conceptual understanding and learn experimental procedures.

·         Relevant and well-labelled diagrams have been provided for easy understanding of the concepts

·         Engaging chapter-end exercises have been provided for practice

·         Collection of experiments to stimulate interest and aid in learning & memorizing the practical aspect of the subject
