Concepts of Genetics
It is essential that textbook authors step back and look with fresh eyes as each edition of their work is planned. In doing so, two main questions must be posed: (1) How has the body of information in their field—in this case Genetics grown and shifted since the last edition; and (2) What pedagogic innovations might be devised and incorporated into the text that will unquestionably enhance students’ learning? The preparation of the 10th edition of Concepts of Genetics, a text now well into its third decade of providing support for students studying in this field, has occasioned still another fresh look.

And what we focused on in this new edition, in addition to the normal updating that is inevitably required, were two things: (1) the need to increase the opportunities for instructors and students to engage in active and cooperative learning approaches, either within or outside of the classroom; and (2) the need to provide more comprehensive coverage of important, emerging topics that do not yet warrant their own traditional chapters.
Regarding the first point, and as discussed in further detail below, we have added a new feature called Case Study, which appears at the end of every chapter. In addition, we have converted the Genetics, Technology, and Society essays that appear at the end of many chapters to an active learning format by adding a Your Turn portion to each essay. These features join our unique Exploring Genomics entries, and together, these all may serve as the basis for interactions between small groups of students, either in or out of the classroom. Regarding the second point of covering emerging topics, we have devised a unique approach in genetics textbooks that offers readers a set of four abbreviated, highly focused chapters that we label Special Topics in Modern Genetics. As described below, these provide uniquely cohesive coverage of four important topics: DNA Forensics, Genomics and Personalized Medicine, Epigenetics, and Stem Cells.
