Overview

Principles of Genetics, 6e balances key content and problem solving so that students can apply what they are reading to help solve related problems. Instructors and students can feel confident that they have the following in-text tools and supplements they need to succeed in the genetics course:

In-Text tools

  • Test Your Problem-Solving Skills feature shows students how to approach and solve a key problem. In addition, a Solve It icon prompts students to go online to work with animated tutorials. Practice problems for all question types are found at the end of each chapter.
  • The Focus On boxes (one per chapter) have been revised to include the most current developments in genetics as well as the most relevant topics to students.
  • A streamlined topical coverage, vetted by a panel of genetics instructors, makes for a text that is manageable in size. This textbook will provide instructors and students with in-depth explanations of key topics frequently covered in a one-semester course.

On-Line Tools

  • Animated solutions to the Solve It prompts in the text utilize Camastia Studio software, a registered trademark of TechSmith Corporation. There tutorials provide step-by-step solutions that appear as if they are written out by hand as an instructor voice-over explains each step.
  • GO Problem tutorials help students build confidence as they observe a problem being worked out and then attempt to solve a similar problem on their own.
