MSU Faculty Authors

Author

The author obtained his undergraduate degree in Marine Biology from the University of South Carolina and graduate degrees from the College of William and Mary (M.S., Biology) and North Carolina State University (Ph.D., Physiology). He then received a two-year post-doctoral fellowship for work in the Genetics Unit of the Southeast Poultry Research Laboratory. He is currently a professor in the Poultry Science Department at Mississippi State University. In addition to research responsibilities, he teaches introductory and upper-level courses in genetics. He has developed the workbook entitled, Study Guide for Introductory Genetics to serve as an instructional aid in the introductory level course.


Study Guide for Introductory Genetics

Peebles, E. David
Publisher: Kendall Hunt Publishing
Fourth Edition, Revised Printing,2014
ISBN: 9781465250452

The Study Guide for Introductory Genetics, 4th edition (Revised Printing), was developed as a Workbook for Introductory Genetics students. It is the main source of class information, with other texts and articles used as supplemental reading. In order to increase the understanding and learning efficiency of the student, the order of subject material in the Study Guide corresponds to that presented in class. It also contains blank pages for additional note taking.

To meet the needs of an audience belonging to a broad spectrum of science majors, its contents incorporate a large variety of important topics from Mendelian concepts to DNA sequencing. Furthermore, it draws from both the prokaryotic and eukaryotic levels, and plant and animal kingdoms for demonstrational purposes. The Study Guide has been eagerly adopted by students and has been described as complete, yet very understandable.
