Snustad's 6th edition of Principles of Genetics offers many new and advanced features including boxed sections with the latest advances in Genetics, a streamlined roster of topics, a more reader-friendly layout, and new problem-solving supplements. Furthermore, this new edition includes more problem solving within each chapter through the Test Your Problem Solving Skills feature and a Solve It icon to prompt readers to go online to WileyPlus for animated tutorials. A new one-column design better showcases important pieces of art and avoids the -overwhelmed- reaction readers have to the crowded layouts found in many other texts. Boxed sections reduce in size to help maintain the flow of the text and the Focus On boxes are revised to include the most current developments in genetics as well as most relevant topics.
