About this book

This third edition of a student-tested primer provides guided instruction in the analysis and interpretation of genetic principles and problem solving. All core areas of genetics are covered. Each section is introduced with a summary of key concepts and terms. A series of problems, graded from simple to more complex, then allows students to test their understanding of the material. This new edition includes additional problems, extensively expanded coverage of molecular biology throughout, new overview chapters and an expanded glossary.
