iGenetics: A Molecular Approach reflects the dynamic nature of modern genetics by emphasizing an experimental, inquiry-based approach with a solid treatment of many research experiments. The text is ideally suited for students who have had some background in biology and chemistry and who are interested in learning the central concepts of genetics. Problem solving is a major feature of the text and students have the opportunity to apply critical thinking skills to a variety of problems at the end of each chapter. Pedagogical features such as "Principal Points," at the beginning of each chapter, and "Keynotes," strategically placed throughout the chapter, are useful learning tools. The iGenetics CD-ROM and the companion website contain 25 activities and 59 narrated animations, all of which are based on text figures, to help students visualize complex processes and challenging concepts they encounter in the main text. An intense developmental effort, along with numerous third-party reviews of both text and media, ensure the highest degree of accuracy.Über den Autor:
Peter J. Russell received his B.S. in Biology from University of Sussex in 1968 and his Ph.D. in Genetics from Cornell University in 1972. He then joined the Biology faculty of Reed College in 1972 where he is currently Professor of Biology. Russell teaches an upper-division genetics and molecular biology lecture/laboratory course, the genetics section of the introductory biology course, an advanced seminar course in yeast virology, and advises senior thesis research students. He is also the author of a number of successful genetics textbooks. He is currently studying the molecular genetics of the replication of double-stranded (ds) RNA viruses found in budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The research goals are to define in vivo the cis-acting sequences that are required for viral RNA packaging into capsids and for genome replication, and to identify and characterize any yeast gene products required for virus propagation. His earlier research involved Neurospora RNA synthesis and the organization of and regulation of the number of ribosomal RNA genes, and nitrogen metabolism in the pathogenic dimorphic yeast Candida albicans.
