Synopsis: SmartBook™ is the first and only adaptive reading experience designed to change the way students read and learn. It creates a personalized reading experience by highlighting the most impactful concepts a student needs to learn at that moment in time. As a student engages with SmartBook, the reading experience continuously adapts by highlighting content based on what the student knows and doesn’t know. This ensures that the focus is on the content he or she needs to learn, while simultaneously promoting long-term retention of material. Use SmartBook’s real-time reports to quickly identify the concepts that require more attention from individual students–or the entire class.

About the Author: Dr. Michael Goldberg is a professor at Cornell University, where he teaches introductory genetics and human genetics. He was an undergraduate at Yale University and received his Ph.D. in biochemistry from Stanford University. Dr. Goldberg performed postdoctoral research at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel (Switzerland) and at Harvard University, and he received an NIH Fogarty Senior International Fellowship for study at Imperial College (England) and fellowships from the Fondazione Cenci Bolognetti for sabbatical work at the University of Rome (Italy). His current research uses the tools of Drosophila genetics and the biochemical analysis of frog egg cell extracts to investigate the mechanisms that ensure proper cell cycle progression and chromosome segregation during mitosis and meiosis.

Ruth Veres is a science writer and editor with 25 years of experience in textbook publishing. She obtained her BA from Swarthmore college and MA degrees from Columbia University in NY and Tufts University. In addition to developing and editing more than 30 texts in the fields of political science, economics, psychology, nutrition, chemistry, and biology, she has co-authored a book on the immune system and an introductory biology text. She has also taught writing and languages at the Univ of California at Berkeley. She lives in San Francisco with her husband.

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. 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). He is deeply involved in K-12 science educatiohn. His hobbies include running, mountain climbing, and reading.

Dr. Leland Hartwell is President and Director of Seattle’s Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and Professor of Genome Sciences at the University of Washington. Dr. Hartwell’s primary research contributions were in identifying genes that control cell division in yeast, including those necessary for the division process as well as those necessary for the fi delity of genome reproduction. Subsequently, many of these same genes have been found to control cell division in humans and oft en to be the site of alteration in cancer cells. Dr. Hartwell is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and has received the Albert Lasker Basic Medical Research Award, the Gairdner Foundation International Award, the Genetics Society Medal, and the 2001 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.

Dr. Janice Fischer is a Professor at The University of Texas at Austin, where she is an award-winning teacher of genetics and Director of the Biology Instructional Office. She received her Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular biology from Harvard University, and did postdoctoral research at The University of California at Berkeley and The Whitehead Institute at MIT. In her current research, Dr. Fischer uses Drosophila to examine the roles of ubiquitin and endocytosis in cell signaling during development.

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.
