The sixth edition of Concepts of Genetics has been designed to achieve five major goals:
1. To establish a conceptual framework that represents a sound approach to learning and facilitates the comprehension of the vast amount of information constituting the field of genetics.
2. To emphasize the rich history of scientific discovery and analytical thought, so prevalent in genetics, that provides an opportunity for students to hone their problem-solving abilities and to explore how we know what we know.
3. To cover material with a clear, crisp organizational format, both within each chapter and throughout the chapter sequence, to facilitate effective use of the text.
4. To present carefully designed figures with strong pedagogic value that teach rather than merely illustrate complex topics and analytical experiments.
5. To provide students with clearly written, straightforward explanations that elucidate difficult, complex topics without oversimplifying presentations.
