Essentials of Genetics (10th Edition) – eBook PDF:
Charlotte A. Spencer
Dr. Charlotte A. Spencer is a retired Associate Professor in the Department of Oncology at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. She has also served as a faculty member in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Alberta.
Dr. Spencer got her B.Sc. in Microbiology from the University of British Columbia (Canada) and her Ph.D. in Genetics from the University of Alberta (Canada) followed by postdoctoral training at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington. Her research interests involve the regulation of RNA polymerase II transcription in cancer cells, cells infected with DNA viruses and cells transversing the mitotic phase of the cell cycle. She has taught courses in Genetics, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, and Oncology, at both graduate and undergraduate levels. She has contributed Genetics, Technology and Society essays for several editions of Concepts of Genetics as well as Essentials of Genetics. In addition, she has written booklets in the Exploring Biology series, which are aimed at the undergraduate nonmajors level.
Michael A. Palladino
Dr. Michael A. Palladino is Dean of the School of Science and Associate Professor of Biology at Monmouth University in West Long Branch, New Jersey. He got his B.S. in Biology from Trenton State College and his Ph.D. in Anatomy and Cell Biology from the University of Virginia.
Dr. Palladino directs an active laboratory of undergraduate student researchers studying molecular mechanisms involved in innate immunity of mammalian male reproductive organs and genes involved in oxygen homeostasis and ischemic injury of the testis. He has taught a wide range of courses for both nonmajors and majors and currently teaches biotechnology, endocrinology, genetics, and laboratory in cell and molecular biology. He has received several awards for teaching and research.
Michael R. Cummings
Dr. Michael R. Cummings is a Research Professor in the Department of Biological, Chemical, and Physical Sciences at Illinois Institute of Technology, Illinois. For over 25 years, he was a faculty member in the Department of Biological Sciences and in the Department of Molecular Genetics at the University of Illinois. Michael has also served on the faculties of Florida State University and Northwestern University. He earned his B.A. from St. Mary’s College in Winona, Minnesota, and his M.S. and Ph.D. from Northwestern University in Evanston. Dr. Cummings has also written textbooks in general biology and human genetics for nonmajors. His research interests center on the molecular organization and physical mapping of the heterochromatic regions of human acrocentric chromosomes. At the undergraduate level, he teaches courses in human genetics, Mendelian and molecular genetics, and general biology, and has received numerous awards for teaching excellence given by student organizations, university faculty, and graduating seniors.
William S. Klug
Dr. William S. Klug is an Emeritus Professor of Biology at The College of New Jersey in Ewing, New Jersey, where he served as Chair of the Biology Department for 17 years. He got his B.A. degree in Biology from Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana, and his Ph.D. from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. Before coming to The College of New Jersey, he was on the faculty of Wabash College as an Assistant Professor, where he first taught genetics, as well as electron microscopy and general biology. His research interests have involved ultrastructural and molecular genetic studies of development, utilizing oogenesis in Drosophila as a model system. He has taught the genetics course as well as the senior capstone seminar course in Human and Molecular Genetics to undergraduate biology majors for over forty years. He was the recipient in 2001 of the first annual teaching award given at The College of New Jersey, granted to the faculty member who “most challenges students to achieve high standards.” He also received the 2004 Outstanding Professor Award from Sigma Pi International, and in the same year, he was nominated as the Educator of the Year, an award given by the Research and Development Council of New Jersey. When he is away from revision files and reading the genetic literature, he can often be found paddling in Maine’s Pebobscot Bay.
Essentials of Genetics (10th Edition) – eBook
Emphasizes on essential genetic topics and explore the latest breakthroughs
Known for its emphasis on conceptual understanding, problem-solving, and practical applications, the bestselling Essentials of Genetics, 10th Edition, (PDF) strengthens problem-solving skills and studies the essential genetics topics that today’s students need to understand. The 10th Edition has been comprehensively updated to provide extensive coverage of important, emerging topics such as epigenetics, CRISPR-Cas, and genetic testing. Moreover, a new Special Topic chapter covers Advances in Neurogenetics with stress on Huntington Disease, and new essays on Genetics, Ethics, and Society highlight ethical considerations that genetics is bringing into everyday life. The complementary Mastering Genetics online platform includes new tutorials on topics like CRISPR-Cas and epigenetics, and new Dynamic Study Modules, which support student learning of main concepts and prepare them for class.
NOTE: The product only includes the ebook, Essentials of Genetics, 10th Edition in PDF. No access codes are included.
