Like its parent text, Genetics Essentials offers student-friendly features, cutting edge and classical research, and helpful media, with an engaging voice bringing it all together. There is a greater emphasis on understanding and connecting basic concepts, as well as carefully crafted pedagogy to help develop sure-fire problem-solving skills. The price is very college student friendly as well–significantly less than similar textbooks for the course.
