Overview

Concepts of Genetics is a one semester introductory genetics text that explains genetics concepts in a concise, engaging and up-to-date manner. Rob Brooker, author of market leading texts in Genetics and Intro Biology for majors, brings his clear and accessible writing style to this briefer genetics text. He employs the use of experimentation and stresses the fundamentals of the Scientific Method in presenting genetics concepts, then further engages the reader through the use of formative assessment to assist the student in understanding the core genetic principles. The introduction of Learning Outcomes throughout the chapter in the 2nd edition helps the student focus on the key concepts presented in the chapter. Concepts of Genetics, 2e also stresses developing problem-solving skills with the new feature “Genetic TIPS” that breaks a problem down into conceptual parts (Topic, Information, Problem-Solving Strategy) to help students work through the answer. The 2nd edition will be more focused on core concepts with the narrowing of book content by eliminating specialty chapters that many courses do not have time to cover in detail (the full chapters on Developmental Genetics and Evolutionary Genetics—these general topics are discussed elsewhere, but not in the amount of detail in the first edition). The author has added new information regarding epigenetics and material on personalized medicine.

The integration of the genetics text and the power of digital world are now complete with McGraw-Hill's ConnectPlus including LearnSmart. Users who purchase Connect Plus receive access to SmartBook and to the full online ebook version of the textbook.
