For one- or two-term courses in Genetics in the departments of Biology, Zoology, Agriculture or Health Science.
This text is known for its clear writing style, emphasis on concepts, visual art program and thoughtful coverage of all areas of genetics. The authors capture students' interest with up-to-date coverage of cutting-edge topics and research. The authors emphasize those concepts that students should come to understand and take away with them, not a myriad of details and exceptions that need to memorized and are soon forgotten. The seventh edition boasts the next generation of interactive learning tutorials and animations integrated within the Companion Website.
