Genetics: A Conceptual Approach
by Benjamin Pierce
Edition: 4th., 2010.
Designed for introductory genetics courses, "Genetics: A Conceptual Approach" focuses on the important concepts and mechanics of genetics without losing students in a sea of detail. Drawing on more than 20 years of teaching experience, the author makes this often complex subject seem clear and accessible by making important connections between topics, providing advice and encouragement at difficult places, and describing the people, places, and experiments of genetics that make the subject interesting and alive.
