9780716779285: Genetics: A Conceptual Approach 3rd Edition

Based on the author’s 27 years of teaching experience, Genetics: A Conceptual Approach, Third Edition, builds upon features that have made past editions so successful:  an engaging writing style; relevant applications; an accessible and instructive art program; an emphasis on problem-solving; and, most importantly, a strong focus on concepts and connections.  To bring these key concepts into sharper focus, Ben Pierce has selectively reduced the amount of detail and has streamlined coverage to focus on essential concepts.
