Summary

Based on the author's more than twenty years of teaching experience, Genetics: A Conceptual Approach offers a fresh new way of introducing the major concepts and mechanics of genetics, focusing students on the big picture without overwhelming them with detail.

In this new edition, Ben Pierce again brings genetics to life by providing a conceptual overview of the subject, by making important connections between topics, by providing advice and encouragement at difficult places, and by describing cornerstone experiments. The thoroughly updated new edition also features more emphasis on the scientific method, new coverage of model organisms, and new a new recurring integrative case study that helps students see how the concepts of transmission, molecular, and population genetics are interrelated.
