Snustad provides scientists with the confidence to apply problem solving to the major principals of genetics. It eases them into the art of problem solving by integrating problems within each chapter. A clear connection between key principals and related problems is presented in each chapter. Icons help them clearly see how a problem is worked out before reading on. The fifth edition has also been revised with an improved art program. It offers more balanced coverage of traditional and modern topics by weaving classical genetics with molecular genetics, and illustrating the connection between the two. The book is problem-solving-centric as well. Chapters now contain problems that correlate with major principals. Coverage of both classic experiments and current research will allow scientists to gain perspective on the process of science.

From the Back Cover:

The cover shows many facets of genetics. Top row, Left: The DNA double-helix, here imaged in a scanning tunneling micrograph, is central to all genetics research. Right: Experimentation has shown that some social behaviors, such as nest cleaning by honeybees, is under genetic control. Second row, Left: Inherited disorders such as albinism, manifested here in a bullfrog, have provided many insights about the genetic control of metabolism. Right: Gregor Mendel's 19th-century work with pea plants elucidated the basic principles of inheritance. Third row, Left: Efforts to combat HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, depend on knowing how the virus expresses its genes inside the cells of the immune system. Right: The fruit fly is ideally suited for studies on the genetic control of embryonic development and organ formation. Fourth row, Left: The identification of mutations that cause unregulated cell division facilitates the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of breast cancer. Right: HeLa cells, derived in 1951 from Henrietta Lacks, a woman who died of cervical cancer, thrive in the laboratory and are used in research worldwide. Bottom row: The replication of chromosomes (left) is a prerequsite for cell division (right).
