Genetics is an extremely fun topic but the learning curve for entry has been non-trivial. It reminds me of the struggles I had when I was first learning to program recursive functions. With that said, it's been far, far more complicated than recursion. So, thank you for the resource, I'm always happy to find content sources that are helpful on the subject. If you enjoy hard CS problems, bioinformatics has been booming and I don't really see it slowing down anytime soon.

As for some resources, these books have been the most helpful for me.

[0] https://www.amazon.com/Molecular-Biology-Cell-Bruce-Alberts-... // I've linked and have seen mentioned here in the past, a great intro to cell biology.

[1] https://www.amazon.com/System-Modeling-Cellular-Biology-Conc... // Modeling with math. I would consider this high-yield as it gave me a great deal of insight into what different code bases are actually attempting to do.

[2] https://www.amazon.com/DNA-Nanoscience-Prebiotic-Emerging-Na... // Blew my mind when I first read it but the content is pretty standard as far as genetics course material goes.
