Teach students core genetics concepts and applications

Concepts of Genetics emphasizes the fundamental ideas of genetics, while exploring modern techniques and applications of genetic analysis. This best-selling text continues to provide understandable explanations of complex, analytical topics and recognizes the importance of teaching students how to become effective problem solvers.

The 12th Edition has been extensively updated to provide comprehensive coverage of important, emerging topics such as CRISPR-Cas and the study of posttranscriptional gene regulation in eukaryotes. An expanded emphasis on ethical considerations that genetics is bringing into everyday life is addressed in Genetics, Ethics, and Society and Case Study features.

Mastering Genetics is not included.

Students, if Mastering Genetics is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN. Mastering Genetics should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.
