Mark F Sanders, John L Bowman.

Mark F. Sanders, University of California at Davis. Bowman, Monash University. Unique Chapter 10: The Integration of Genetic Approaches integrates transmission genetics, molecular analysis, molecular techniques, and evolution in an exploration of sickle cell disease. Case Studies are short, real-world examples that appear at the end of every chapter and highlight central ideas or concepts of the chapter with interesting examples that remind students of some practical applications of genetics. Carefully crafted summaries and figures help students distill the most important take home lessons in each chapter.

Informed by many years of genetics teaching and research experience, authors Mark Sanders and John Bowman use an integrative approach that helps contextualize three core challenges of learning genetics: solving problems, understanding evolution, and understanding the connection between traditional genetics models and more modern approaches.

Genetic Analysis: An Integrated Approach

This book is horrible! I'm in a genetics class right now, and we've had two homework assignments so far -- a lot of it is from the back of the textbook chapter problems. Already have found 4+ mistakes. The answer key at the back of the textbook is basically useless because it only gives answers to a couple of the even numbered problems and even then those answers are more often than not completely wrong! There are a bunch of typos and answers that clearly were not double checked. (ex. the answer key would forget that you have to multiply by 3 for 3-child birth order problems, etc.)

There are typos throughout the chapter 2 -- there's one paragraph on chi square analysis where it says "the degree of freedom is because, while there are two possible outcomes..." Is because?!?!? The author forgot to even type in the value. Very poor editing!

It's way too wordy and completely useless. There HAS to be a better genetics textbook out there, ugh.
When I saw the other reviews for this book, I was a little worried since everyone was saying it was full of mistakes and was overall terrible. There are a few mistakes but they seem to be more in the figures than in the text itself. I know someone mentioned an equation being incorrect, and I wouldn't know about that since my course doesn't focus on the math very much. It can be very dry in certain sections, especially those that it considers review like transcription and translation. Even the new material, like proteins you don't learn in cell biology, it just lists off and makes it very dull to read. I am not disappointed in the book but it could be better - but really what textbook is perfect?
I would recommend the next edition, because they have probably updated/corrected some of the errors. I am using for an advanced Genetics class and it pack lots of information into each chapter. Online access to "MasteringGenetics.com" included and required for the course. I use online etext, practice tests, homework and reviews and still, hard to keep up. I think that they should put answers to all questions instead of just even numbered and I would like more "practice" on the math questions. I found the online search helpful for those annoying details, like when to include a slash mark. I am not an expert, but they balance history, examples and pictures with practical applications.
I have no idea if anyone at Pearson hired anyone with a biology degree to edit and check this, but this book is absolutely terrible. This book skims a lot of the concepts, and in doing so, it completely messes them up as well. One clear example is the way they explained meiosis. They completely skipped stages and lumped things together when it shouldn't have been.

Don't even bother with the back of the chapter questions - it's as if Sanders found a couple undergrads who have zero grasp of the subject make the questions and the corresponding "answer bank". Most of the answers will be wrong.

Expect to spend most of your time fact-checking this book instead of learning.
a little better than the 1st edition in terms of organization. Did not come with online access (not advertised to come with it, but for anyone who may have been wondering)
Maybe the second edition is better, but like others have said this book is one of the worst textbooks to use. I went over one of the example problems were they provide the explanation and answers and it was wrong! I went to the students, TAs, and other very smart students and we all agreed that there were mistakes in the amino acid sequences based on the codons!

I have had much better textbooks in my other biology courses. I am a 4.0 in bio student and think this book is complicated and wracked with unnecessary details. The material is not presented clearly nor do I agree with some of the answers and problems.

Find another book to supplement your genetics course that will be my plan for the rest of my semester.
I guess I can give it a break because it's only a 2nd edition but there are SOOOI many mistakes in the homework problems it's incredibly frustrating to try and learn such a difficult subject when at least one problem per chapter is answered wrong in the solutions manual. At least I have my teacher to help me out.
I'm taking General Genetics (3000 level course) this semester and the newest edition was required, but I've had no trouble using this edition.
