Genetics: Analysis and Principles is a one-semester, introductory genetics textbook that takes an experimental approach to understanding genetics. By weaving one or two experiments into the narrative of each chapter, students can simultaneously explore the scientific method and understand the genetic principles that have been learned from these experiments.
Rob Brooker, author of market leading texts in Genetics and Intro Biology for majors, brings his clear and accessible writing style to this new edition.
The integration of the genetics text and the power of digital world are now complete with McGraw-Hill's ConnectPlus. Users who purchase Connect Plus receive access to the full online ebook version of the textbook.
A genetics text with strong emphasis on the scientific method. Each chapter incorporates one or two experiments which are analyzed according to the scientific method and the genetic principles which are derived from the method, allowing students to see the connection between scientific analysis and principles. Includes problem sets, chapter summaries, notes on links between genes and traits, color illustrations, b&w photos, and experiments illustrated with descriptions, parallel diagrams, and concept explanations.
