With carefully chosen topics to help students attain scientific competency, Dr. Hartl expertly covers the fundamentals of genetics from the perspective of genomics, including gene transmission, mutation, expression, and regulation. New and updated Stop & Think problems, Key Concept checks, and Human Connection feature boxes throughout chapters, along with extensive end-of-chapter review and study material that encourages students to analyze and apply new skills, further emphasize the text's focus on student success. The seamless integration of "molecular genetics" and "classical genetics" coupled with the copious practice and problem-solving opportunities make Essential Genetics and Genomics, Seventh Edition a unique resource for learning and applying genetics to our world.
To ensure students are prepared for introductory genetics, a new online Readiness Assessment is available to complete prior to diving into the material. Students simply answer the online questions to obtain a personalized score with tailored areas to focus their review. Students are then directed to the color-coded Readiness Review section in the back of the text to practice the areas where study is needed. Sections include Math in Genetics, Science Prerequisites, and Thinking Like a Scientist. Never has learning genetics been so straightforward!
