Summary

Genetics: Analysis and Principlesis a one-semester, introductory genetics textbook that takes an experimental approach to understanding genetics. By weaving one or two experiments into the narrative of each chapter, students can simultaneously explore the scientific method and understand the genetic principles that have been learned from these experiments. Rob Brooker, author of market leading texts in Genetics and Intro Biology for majors, brings his clear and accessible writing style to this new edition. The integration of the genetics text and the power of digital world are now complete with McGraw-Hill's ConnectPlus.
