About the Author
Dr. Sanders received his Bachelors degree in Anthropology from San Francisco State University and his Master’s and Ph.D. degrees in Biological Anthropology from the University of California, Los Angeles. Following graduation, he spent four years at the University of California, Berkeley as a post-doctoral researcher studying inherited susceptibility to human breast and ovarian cancer. At UC Berkeley he also taught his first genetics courses. Since coming to the University of California, Davis, Dr. Sanders has maintained a full-time teaching schedule and promotes academic achievement by undergraduate students in numerous ways, including as an active student advisor, through his on-going role as the director of a long-standing undergraduate student program, and by past service as the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Academic Programs in the College of Biological Sciences.
John L. Bowman is a Professor in the School of Biological Sciences at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia and an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Plant Biology at the University of California, Davis in the US. He received a B.S. in Biochemistry at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Illinois in 1986 and a Ph.D. in Biology from the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, California. His Ph.D. research focused on how the identities floral organs are specified in Arabidopsis (described in Chapter 20). He conducted postdoctoral research at Monash University on the regulation of floral development. From 1996-2006 his laboratory at UC Davis focused on the developmental genetics of plant development, focusing on how leaves are patterned. From 2006-2011 he was a Federation Fellow at Monash University where his laboratory is studying land plant evolution using a developmental genetics approach. At UC Davis he taught genetics, 'from Mendel to cancer', to undergraduate students, and continues to teach genetics courses at Monash University.

There are typos throughout the chapter 2 -- there's one paragraph on chi square analysis where it says "the degree of freedom is because, while there are two possible outcomes..." Is because?!?!? The author forgot to even type in the value. Very poor editing!
It's way too wordy and completely useless. There HAS to be a better genetics textbook out there, ugh.
Don't even bother with the back of the chapter questions - it's as if Sanders found a couple undergrads who have zero grasp of the subject make the questions and the corresponding "answer bank". Most of the answers will be wrong.
Expect to spend most of your time fact-checking this book instead of learning.
