Work more effectively and gauge your progress as you go along! This Study Guide & Problems Workbook that accompanies Snustad’s Principles of Genetics, 3rd Edition, is written to be a hands-on workbook to help you learn and reinforce terminology and concepts, develop problem-solving skills, and challenge your mind. Learning introductory genetics requires both communication of knowledge and solution of problems. To communicate your newly acquired knowledge involves learning new terminology.

Snustad & Simmons’ Principles of Genetics, 3rd Edition presents the most up-to-date developments in genetics as well as the fundamental principles. It stresses how genetics is done and provides historical and biographical insights to the people and events that have made genetics a pre-eminent science. The authors provide a clear, concise presentation of the basic principles and concepts of genetics. The text contains discussions of the methods and experiments upon which genetic principles are based, such as DNA replication. It offers topics such as the Human Genome, inherited human diseases, and the genetic basis of human behavior are discussed in the book and in special Human Genetics Sidelights. The third edition includes many updates to the genomics material.

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.
