Susan L. Elrod has degrees in biological sciences from California State University, Chico (B.S., 1986) and genetics from the University of California, Davis (Ph.D., 1995). Graduate work was followed by a postdoctoral fellowship at Novozymes Biotech, Inc., in Davis, California. Her research is focused on the molecular genetics of yeast and filamentous fungal systems, with a particular interest in industrial and environmental applications. She holds three patents and has published in the area of gene cloning and protein expression in Aspergillus oryzae. She has been an assistant professor in the Biological Sciences Department at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, since 1997, where she teaches introductory microbiology, industrial microbiology and biotechnology, molecular genetics, bioinformatics, and the history of biology.
William D. Stansfield has degrees in Agriculture (B.S., 1952), Education (M.A., 1960), and Genetics (M.S., 1962; Ph.D., 1963; University of California at Davis). His published research is in immunogenetics, twinning, and mouse genetics. From 1957 to 1959 he was an instructor in high school vocational in agriculture. He was a faculty member of the Biological Sciences Department of California Polytechnic State University from 1963 to 1992 and is now Emeritus Professor. He has written university-level textbooks in evolution and serology/immunology, and has coauthored a dictionary of genetics.
This book turned out to be a problem solving example that is applicable only to biology majors in grad school.Published 2 days ago by Henry J. George
Very good summery of the material covered in my 300 level university course. I would ask for some more difficult problems to work through though.Published 21 months ago by Melissa Hermes
It was poorly written because it was designed for the sole purpose of passing an exam in genetics. This was not made clear in the Amazon description of its contents. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Leefowlers
I was enrolled in university level genetics class and NEVER opened this book and aced the class. I'm not sure if I have a knack for genetics or I'm just that good (j/k sort of),... Read morePublished 22 months ago by usmc81hog
it actually complicated the subject a lot more and does not really cover the entire course, just buy the book for your class!Published on June 24, 2013 by alexander
I've used Schaum's Outlines ever since I was a student and they have provided basic information on a range of topics. I like that I can rely on them. Read morePublished on March 11, 2013 by Book Worm
