Genetics: From Genes to genomes represents a new approach to an undergraduate course in genetics. It reflects the way we, the authors, currently view the molecular basis of life. We intergrate:


·         Formal Genetics


·         Molecular Genetics


·         Genomics and systems biology


·         Human Genetics


·         The Units of Life – Forms


·         Molecular evolution


Dr. Leland Hartwell

Dr. Leland Hartwell is president and Director of Seattle’s Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and Professor of Genome Sciences at the University of Washington. Dr.Hartwell’s primary research contributions were in identifying genes that control cell division in yeast including those necessary for the division process as well as those necessary for the fidelity of genome reproduction. Dr. Hartwell is member of the National Academy of Sciences and has received the Albert Lasker Basic International Award.

Dr. Lee Hood

Dr. Lee Hood received an M.D. from the Johns Hopkins Medical School and a Ph.D. in biochemistry from the California Institute of Technology. His research interests include immunology, cancer biology, development, and the development of biological instrumentation (for example, the protein sequencer and the automated florescent DNA sequencer).He is deeply involved in K – 12 science education. His hobbies include running, mountain climbing, and reading.

Dr. Michael Goldberg

Dr. Michael Goldberg is a professor at Cornell University, where he teaches introductory genetics. He was an undergraduate at Yale University and received his Ph.D. in biochemistry from Stanford University.

Dr. Ann Reynolds

Dr. Ann Reynolds is an educator and author. She began teaching genetics and biology in 1990, and her research has included studies of gene regulation in E.coli, chromosome structure and DNA replication in yeast, and chloroplast gene expression in marine algae.

Dr. Lee M. Silver

Dr. Lee M. Silver received B.A and M.S. degrees in physics from the University of Pennsylvania, and a Ph.D. in biophysics from Hardward University. He obtained further training at New York’s Memorial Slaon – Ketterling Cancer Center, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, and the Pasture Institute in Paris, France.
