If you rent or purchase a used book with an access code, the access code may have been redeemed previously and you may have to purchase a new access code.


Access codes

Access codes that are purchased from sellers other than Pearson carry a higher risk of being either the wrong ISBN or a previously redeemed code. Check with the seller prior to purchase.



With its modern chapter organization and new “Focus on Genomics” boxes, iGenetics: A Molecular Approach MasteringGenetics, 3/e, reflects the increasing molecular emphasis in today’s experimental study of genes while helping you develop problem-solving skills and an appreciation for classic experiments. Although molecular topics are presented first, instructors can assign the chapters in any sequence.


Pedagogical features such as chapter-opening “Key Questions” and strategically placed “Keynotes” help you to efficiently master genetic concepts.
