How Access Codes Work


DIGITAL UPDATE available for Fall 2021 classes  

For all introductory genetics courses.
This ISBN is for the Modified Mastering access card. Pearson eText is included. 

Engage students with real-world applications of genetics
Informed by more than 50 years’ experience and experimentation in teaching genetics, authors Mark Sanders and John Bowman share their excitement about genetics and the dynamism at work in the field with Genetic Analysis: An Integrated Approach. The authors use an integrated approach to help contextualize three core challenges of learning genetics: solving problems, understanding the connection between traditional genetics models and more modern approaches, and understanding evolution. 

With the 3rd Edition, the authors provide students with additional problem-solving guidance and a new emphasis on real-world applications of genetics. They also strive to make learning the details of genetics easier and offer ways to facilitate group work and discussion of genetics problems and concepts. The revision incorporates key updates that keep pace with changes in the field, such as advances in CRISPR-Cas, more discussion of epigenetics and expanded coverage of genomic approaches.

Personalize learning with Mastering Genetics
This flexible digital platform combines unrivaled content, online assessments, and customizable features to personalize learning and improve results, one student at a time.

Pearson eText?is an easy-to-use digital textbook available within?Mastering?that lets?you?read, highlight, take notes,?and?review key vocabulary?all in one place.?

NOTE: Before purchasing, check with your instructor to confirm the correct ISBN. Several versions of the MyLab® and Mastering® platforms exist for each title, and registrations are not transferable. To register for and use MyLab or Mastering, you may also need a Course ID, which your instructor will provide.

Used books, rentals, and purchases made outside of Pearson
If purchasing or renting from companies other than Pearson, the access codes for the Mastering platform may not be included, may be incorrect, or may be previously redeemed. Check with the seller before completing your purchase.

Author Biography

Mark F. Sanders has been a faculty member in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of California, Davis, since 1985. In that time, he has taught more than 150 genetics courses to nearly 35,000 undergraduate students. Although he specializes in teaching the genetics course for which this book is written, his genetics teaching experience also includes a genetics laboratory course, an advanced human genetics course for biology majors, and a human heredity course for nonscience majors, as well as introductory biology and courses in population genetics and evolution. He has also served as an advisor to undergraduate students and in undergraduate education administration, and he has directed several undergraduate education programs.

Dr. Sanders received his B.A. degree in Anthropology from San Francisco State University, his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Biological Anthropology from the University of California, Los Angeles, and 4 years of training as a postdoctoral researcher studying inherited susceptibility to human breast and ovarian cancer at the University of California, Berkeley.

John L. Bowman is a professor in the School of Biological Sciences at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, and an adjunct professor in the Department of Plant Biology at the University of California, Davis, in the United States. He received a B.S. in Biochemistry at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1986 and a Ph.D. in Biology from the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, California. His Ph.D. research focused on how the identities of floral organs are specified in Arabidopsis (described in Chapter 18), and he conducted postdoctoral research at Monash University on the regulation of floral development. From 1996 to 2006, his laboratory at UC Davis investigated developmental genetics of plants, focusing on how leaves are patterned. From 2006 to 2011, he was a Federation Fellow at Monash University, where his laboratory is studying land plant evolution using a developmental genetics approach. He was elected a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science in 2014. At UC Davis he taught genetics, “from Mendel to cancer,” to undergraduate students, and he continues to teach genetics courses at Monash University.
