About the Author:

Dr. Hartwell received his Ph.D from MIT. He has held Assistant and Associate Professorships at the University of California before joining the faculty of the University of Washington, where he continues as a Full Professor.

Dr. Hartwell has received numerous awards and honors in the course of his career. Among them he received the Brandeis university Rosenteil Award in 1993, and the sloan-kettering Cancer Center Katherine Berkan Judd Award as well as the Genetics Society of America Medal in 1994. In 1995 he was awarded the MGH Warren Triennial Price and in 1996 was awarded the Columbia University Horwitz Award and the Passano Award. Dr. Hartwell received the Albert Lasker Award for medical research in 1998.

Dr. Hood received an MD from the Johns Hopkins Medical Schooland a PhD in Biochemistry from the California Institute of Technology. His research interests include immunology, development and the development of biological instrumentation (e.g. the protein sequenator and the automated fluorescent DNA sequencer). His research played a key role in unraveling the mysteries of anitbody diversity. Dr. Hood has taught molecular evolution, immunology, molecular biology and biochemistry. he is currently the Chairman (and founder) of the cross-disciplinary Department of Molecular Biotechnology at the University of Washington. Dr. Hood has received a variety of awards including the Albert Lasker Award for Medical Research (1987), Dickson Price (1987), Cefas Award for Biochemistry (1989), and the Distinguished Service Award from the national Association of Teachers (1998).

Dr. Goldberg is a professor at Cornell University where he teaches introductory Genetics. He was an undergraduate at Yale University, and received his PhD in Biochemistry from Stanford University. Dr. Goldberg performed postdoctoral research at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel (Switzerland), posdoctoral research at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel and at Harvard University, and received an NIH Fogarty Senior International Fellowship for study at Imperial College (England) and at the University fo Rome (Italy). His current research utilizes the tools of Drosophila genetics to investigate the mechansims that ensure proper chromosome segregation during mitosis and meiosis.

Dr. Reynolds is an educator and author who has been teaching genetics and biology since 1990. An affiliate faculty member of the Genetics Department at the University of Washington, her research has included studies of gene regulation in E. coli, chromosome structure and DNA replication in yeast, and chloroplast gene expression in marien algae. She is a graduate of Mount Holyoke College and received her PhD from Tufts University. Dr. Reynolds was a post doctoral research fellow witht he Harvard University Department of Molecular Biology. Dr. Reynolds was also an author and producer of the laserdisc and CD-ROM Genetics: Fundamentals to Frontiers.

Dr. Silver is a Professor at Princeton University in the Departments of Molecualr Biology, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, and the program in Neuroscience. Dr. silver graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with BA and MS degrees in physics, and from Harvard University with a PhD in biophysics. He was a research fellow at the Sloan-Kettering Institute for Cancer Research and a seniro scientist at Cold Harbor Lab before coming to Princeton. He is the author of "Remaking Eden: Cloning and Beyond in a Brave New World." He is also the co-editor-in-chief of a new international journal entitled "Clining: Science and Policy," and co-editor-in-chief of "Mammalian Genome," the official journal of the International Mammalian Genome society. In 1993, Dr. Silver was elected a Fellow fo the AAAS.
