Learning genetic coding with no basics whatsoever?Watch this thread
There are obviously lots of information sources about genetics in general. I'd suggest starting there.
I had an optional module in Genetic Programming in my MSc Computer Science degree [not unexpectedly, nexttime and other medics were thinking of the medical subject Genetics, but this is more mathematical!] - was planning to take it up, so bought a book on it, but then decided on IDA (Intelligent Data Analysis) module.
You can have the book if you like - will only cost you a Mac (even 007 needs junk food occasionally! - guys need food as you will understand if you are a guy - ask bro if you are a girl!).
