Author Bio

Cummings, Michael : University of Illinois, Chicago


Michael Cummings is the author and co-author of a number of widely used college textbooks, including "Concepts of Genetics " (co-authored with Klug) and "Essentials of Genetics." He has also written sections on genetics for the McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, and has published a newsletter on advances in human genetics for instructors and students.He received his Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from Northwestern University. His doctoral work, conducted in the laboratory of Dr. R.C. King, centered on ovarian development in Drosophila melanogaster. At the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he has been teaching and doing research for more than 25 years, his current research interests involve the role of the short arm/centromere region of human chromosome 21 in chromosomal aberrations. His laboratory is working on constructing a physical map of this region to explore molecular mechanisms of chromosome interactions.Michael's interest in scientific literacy prompted him to organize a course in human genetics for non-majors. He still teaches this course at present, in addition to genetics for biology majors and general biology.
