    Hi,

    I'm starting the research phase for a series of fiction novels. It's important to me that my fiction is based on plausible science, so I need to educate myself on the basics of several scientific disciplines to create a solid knowledge foundation for my books.

    I'm having a hard time finding resources that specifically address the fundamentals of what I want to know. I'd really appreciate your recommendation of introductory-level books or other resources that address cross-species hybridization theories, techniques, and experimental processes specifically related to animal genetics. It would be great if the resource could also address how to practically and/or theoretically deal with chromosome number mismatches between the species and how to “select” for certain traits.

    Also, please let me know if you are a mammalian genetics expert (or if you know of one) that would be willing to answer questions in return for an honorable mention in the books. Please note that my genetics SME (subject matter expert) would need to sign a confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement, that I’d present questions in batches by e-mail and would prefer to collect answers back via e-mail but could also call if necessary (by appointment), and that the first batch of questions will probably not arrive for several months or longer.

    Thank you!

    Cheers,
    HL Viher

    Hey,

    This might not be quite what you're looking for, so sorry if it isn't, but I highly recommend Lewin B. 'Genes', if you are at all interested in Genetics

    Thanks,

    Tridimity :P
