Description

For all introductory genetics courses



A forward-looking exploration of essential genetics topics

Known for its focus on conceptual understanding, problem solving, and practical applications, this bestseller strengthens problem-solving skills and explores the essential genetics topics that today's students need to understand. The Ninth Edition maintains the text's brief, less-detailed coverage of core concepts and has been extensively updated with relevant, cutting-edge coverage of emerging topics in genetics.





MasteringGenetics (TM) is not included. Students, if MasteringGenetics is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN. MasteringGenetics should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.





Also Available with MasteringGenetics (TM)
This title is also available with MasteringGenetics - an online homework and assessment program that guides students through complex topics in genetics and strengthens problem-solving skills using in-depth tutorials that coach students to the correct answers with hints and feedback specific to their misconceptions and errors. MasteringGenetics offers additional opportunities for students to master key concepts and practice problem solving, using interactive tutorials with hints and feedback. Instructors may also assign pre-lecture quizzes, end-of-chapter problems, practice problems, and test bank questions that are automatically scored and entered into the Mastering gradebook.



Students, if interested in purchasing this title with MasteringGenetics, ask your instructor for the correct package ISBN and Course ID. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.
