Author Biography

About our authors

Mark F. Sanders has been a faculty member in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of California, Davis, since 1985. In that time, he has taught more than 150 genetics courses to nearly 35,000 undergraduate students. Although he specializes in teaching the genetics course for which this book is written, his genetics teaching experience also includes a genetics laboratory course, an advanced human genetics course for biology majors, and a human heredity course for nonscience majors, as well as introductory biology and courses in population genetics and evolution. He has also served as an advisor to undergraduate students and in undergraduate education administration, and he has directed several undergraduate education programs.

Dr. Sanders received his B.A. degree in Anthropology from San Francisco State University, his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Biological Anthropology from the University of California, Los Angeles, and 4 years of training as a postdoctoral researcher studying inherited susceptibility to human breast and ovarian cancer at the University of California, Berkeley.

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 United States. He received a B.S. in Biochemistry at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 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 of floral organs are specified in Arabidopsis (described in Chapter 18), and he conducted postdoctoral research at Monash University on the regulation of floral development. From 1996 to 2006, his laboratory at UC Davis investigated developmental genetics of plants, focusing on how leaves are patterned. From 2006 to 2011, he was a Federation Fellow at Monash University, where his laboratory is studying land plant evolution using a developmental genetics approach. He was elected a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science in 2014. At UC Davis he taught genetics, from Mendel to cancer, to undergraduate students, and he continues to teach genetics courses at Monash University.
