Focus on essential genetic topics and explore the latest breakthroughs

Known for its focus on conceptual understanding, problem solving, and practical applications, the bestselling Essentials of Genetics strengthens problem-solving skills and explores the essential genetics topics that today's students need to understand. The 10th Edition has been extensively updated to provide comprehensive coverage of important, emerging topics such as CRISPR-Cas, epigenetics, and genetic testing. Additionally, a new Special Topics chapter covers Advances in Neurogenetics with a focus on Huntington Disease, and new essays on Genetics, Ethics, and Society emphasize ethical considerations that genetics is bringing into everyday life.

Pearson Mastering Genetics is not included. Students, if Pearson Mastering Genetics is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN. Pearson Mastering Genetics should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.
