Lewin's GENES X, Volume 10

Front Cover
The fields of molecular biology and molecular genetics is rapidly changing with new data acquired daily and new insights into well-studied processes presented on a scale of weeks or months rather than years. For decades Lewin's GENES has provided the teaching community with the most cutting edge presentation of molecular biology and molecular genetics, covering gene structure, sequencing, organization, and expression. The latest edition, with a knowledgeable new author team, has enlisted 21 scientists to provide revisions and content updates in their individual fields of expertise, ensuring that Lewin's GENES X is the most current and comprehensive text in the field. Informative new chapters, as well as a reorganization of material, provide a more logical flow of topics and many chapters have been renamed to better indicate their contents. Lewin's GENES X also contains new pedagogical features to help students learn as they read and an online student study guide allows students to test themselves on key material.

About the author (2011)

Jocelyn E. Krebs has been a member of the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Alaska Anchorage since 2000. She received her B.A. in Biological Sciences from Bard College in 1991 and her PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology from the University of California Berkeley in 1997. Her research focuses on the mechanisms by which DNA transactions such as transcription and repair are accomplished in the context of chromatin. Her teaching interests are in Molecular Biology (taught at the undergraduate, graduate, and first-year medical school levels), as well as the Molecular Biology of Cancer.

Stephen T. Kilpatrick is an Associate Professor of Biology at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown (UPJ). He received a B.S. in Biology for Eastern College (now Eastern University) and a PhD from the Program in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Brown University. His research an teaching interests are in evolutionary molecular genetics. UPJ is an undergraduate degree-granting campus of the University of Pittsburgh, and Dr. Kilpatrick regularly teaches undergraduate courses in majors introductory biology, genetics, evolution, molecular genetics, and biostatistics. Prior to coauthoring the Second Edition of Lewin's Essential Genes, Dr. Kilpatrick has co-authored the test banks for the first edition and for Lewin's GENES VIII and GENES IX. He has also authored ancillaries and pedagogical materials for several introductory non-majors and majors biology and genetics textbooks.

Elliott S. Goldstein earned his B.S. in Biology from the University of Hartford (Connecticut) and his Ph.D. in Genetics from the University of Minnesota, Department of Genetics and Cell Biology. Following this, he was awarded an N.I.H. Postdoctoral Fellowship to work with Dr. Sheldon Penman at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Leaving Boston, he joined the faculty at Arizona State University in Tempe, where he is an Associate Professor in the Cellular, Molecular and Biosciences program in the School of Life Sciences, and in the Honors Disciplinary Program. His research interests are in the area of molecular and developmental genetics of early embryogenesis in Drosophila melanogaster. In recent years, he has focused on the Drosophila counterparts of the human proto-oncogenes jun and fos. His primary teaching responsibilities are in the undergraduate General Genetics course as well as the graduate level Molecular Genetics course.
