We recently sat down with Dr. Hartl at his Harvard University office to discuss his latest textbook, Essential Genetics and Genomics, Seventh Edition. At the end of a long hallway with working research laboratories on either side is Dan's comfortable corner office. Surrounded by DNA models and floor-to-ceiling shelves packed with genetics textbooks and other biological science references, he explained to us why he wrote the textbook.
We were happy to once again showcase our bestselling microbiology and biological sciences textbooks at the 2018 American Society for Microbiology Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE) held in Austin, Texas. Account Manager, Ashley Caissie, Education Technology Consultant, Liam Butler, and Matt Kane, Director of Product Management (not pictured), enjoyed speaking with the 350 higher ed. instructors who traveled from all over the US and as far as Australia, to gather, discuss, and share ideas on how they can "improve teaching and learning in the biological sciences."

Dan Chiras once again offers a refreshing and student-friendly introduction to the structure, function, health, and homeostasis of the human body in a modernized ninth edition of Human Biology. This acclaimed text features a new chapter dedicated to the integumentary system as well as new sections covering evolution, injuries and diseases of the muscles, the pineal gland, and more.
Long considered the quintessential molecular biology textbook, for decades Lewin's GENES has provided the most modern presentation to this transformative and dynamic science. Now in its twelfth edition, this classic text continues to lead with new information and cutting-edge developments, covering gene structure, sequencing, organization, and expression. No other text offers a broader understanding of this exciting and vital science or does so with higher quality art and illustrations. Lewin's GENES XII continues to be the clear choice for molecular biology and genetics.
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.
What is the “big picture” in environmental science? Our authors know and effectively communicate it in Environmental Science: Systems and Solutions, Sixth Edition. Whether you view the subject through a scientific, social, political, or historical lens, you’ll find the concrete foundations here that work for courses in both environmental science and environmental studies.
