The long anticipated ninth edition of Genetics: Analysis of Genes and Genomes by Dan Hartl, Higgins Professor of Biology at Harvard University, is here! Genetics is a resource uniquely suited for learning and applying genetics to our world. Its DNA first presentation frames the discussion of genetics in modern terms, which provides students the context to then understand its Mendelian history.
Genetics continues to treat transmission genetics, molecular genetics, and evolutionary genetics as fully integrated subjects and provides an unprecedented understanding of the basic process of gene transmission, mutation, expression, and regulation. A new unit structure with self-contained chapters provides the flexibility to fit any course design, whether it be Mendel-early, Chromosome-early, or a Genome-first approach. The dynamism of genetics is also perfectly captured, as coverage of technological advances is woven together with ethical controversies.
Problem-solving is a core element to this experimental discipline, and the ninth edition of Genetics is unparalleled in the tools it provides to unlock this fascinating subject. This rich resource allows students copious opportunities to practice and learn by using the clearly-presented mathematical concepts and exercises and chapter problems that encourage students to analyze and apply new skills.
- NEW sections discuss Genome-Wide Association Scans, misconceptions about heritability, Illumina sequencing, Cancer Genomics, Wolbachia in arthropod species, molecular signals of selection, Regulatory RNAs in Development, and more
- New Cutting-Edge boxes highlight recent research and developments in the field, such as the use of CRISPR-Cas9 for gene repair in muscular dystrophy
- Roots of Discovery highlight seminal research papers in genetics
- Science Competencies help students identify key concepts and use them at a variety of learning levels including comprehension, application, analysis, and synthesis
- NEW stunning interior design featuring over 225 NEW and revised illustrations with descriptions that clarify difficult concepts, such as Chi-square Analysis, Pedigree Analysis, Epistasis, Molecular Biology Techniques, and Mutations on Gene Expression
- End-of-chapter questions and assessments reinforce major principles and encourage students to analyze and apply the newly learned concepts
- Animations that bring complex concepts to life
- Instructor Resources include a comprehensive Instructor’s Manual containing Chapter Summaries, Teaching Tips, and Homework & Project suggestions, Lecture Slides in PowerPoint format, an Image Bank with unlabeled versions of many illustrations for easy incorporation into course materials, a list of Web Links to useful and relevant web sites, a complete Test Bank, and Answer Keys.
