Chris J. Myers is a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Utah. A co-inventor on four patents and author of more than 80 technical papers and the textbook Asynchronous Circuit Design, Dr. Myers received an NSF Fellowship in 1991 and an NSF CAREER award in 1996. His research interests include formal verification, asynchronous circuit design, and the analysis and design of genetic regulatory circuits.
"This book by Professor Myers is one of the few texts in the
area that gently brings the uninitiated to these edges. I
congratulate him for his achievement-Engineering Genetic
Circuits admirably touches on much of the 'required'
knowledge while creating a minimal toolset with which beginning
students can confidently venture into this exciting new territory
of systems biology."
-From the Foreword, Adam Arkin, University of California, Berkeley, USA"Prof. Myers' book will be an excellent reference for any course in systems biology ... . I find the many illustrations (worked-out examples and ample number of figures) and exercises at the end of each chapter quite useful and important."
