Lewin’s GENES XIIAuthors: Elliott S. Goldstein, Jocelyn E. Krebs, Stephen T. Kilpatrick
Molecular Biology Texts Don’t Get Any Better Than This – 10 Reasons Why You Should Adopt Lewin’s GENES XII
Long considered the quintessential molecular biology textbook, for decades Lewin’s GENES has provided the most modern presentation to this transformative and dynamic science. Now in its twelfth edition, this classic text continues to lead with new information and cutting-edge developments, covering gene structure, sequencing, organisation, and expression. Leading scientists provide revisions and updates in their respective areas of study offering readers current research and relevant information on the rapidly changing subjects in molecular biology. No other text offers a broader understanding of this exciting and vital science or does so with higher quality art and illustrations. Lewin’s GENES XII continues to be the clear choice for molecular biology and genetics.
Each new print copy includes Navigate 2 Advantage Access that unlocks a comprehensive and interactive eBook with engaging animations, student practice activities and assessments, a full suite of instructor resources, and learning analytics reporting tools.
With Navigate 2, technology and content combine to expand the reach of your classroom. Whether you teach an online, hybrid, or traditional classroom-based course, Navigate 2 delivers unbeatable value.
