Description

Known for its focus on conceptual understanding, problem solving, and practical explanations, this best-seller strengthens problem solving coverage and explores the essential genetics content today’s students need to know. This edition maintains the book’s briefer, less-detailed approach to teaching core concepts. New features of the Eighth Edition include four new Special Topics chapters and thorough updates.
