Human genomes are 99.9 percent identical—with one prominent exception. Instead of a matching pair of X chromosomes, men carry a single X, coupled with a tiny chromosome called the Y. Tracking the emergence of a new and distinctive way of thinking about sex represented by the unalterable, simple, and visually compelling binary of the X and... more...

Stem cell bioprocessing describes the main large-scale bioprocessing strategies for both stem cell culture and purification, envisaging the application of these cells for regenerative medicine and drug screening. Bioreactor configurations are described, including their applications for stem cell expansion, and stem cell separation techniques such as... more...

Gesellschaft und Konsens sind zwei Begriffe, die sich nur widersprüchlich aufeinander beziehen lassen. Einen gesellschaftlichen Konsens hat es nie gegeben. Vielmehr offenbart die Rede von der Konsensgesellschaft eine Ideologie, die alles Politische negiert und unter dem Schleier der objektiven und interessensneutralen Wahrheitsfindung verdeckt. Eine... more...

Women can be described as genetic mosaics because they have two distinctly different types of cells throughout their bodies. Unlike males, who have one X chromosome, females have two X chromosomes in every cell. Much has been written about the Y chromosome and its role in inducing maleness. This is the only book about the X chromosome as a key to female... more...

The major purpose of this book is to review the evidence supporting the concept that intrinsic cell survival programs can be activated by a variety of mildly noxious stimuli or pharmacologic agents to confer protection against the deleterious effects of ischemia/reperfusion (I/R). We begin with a discussion of the concept of hormesis (a term used most... more...

Epigenetic modifications underlie all aspects of human physiology, including stem cell renewal, formation of cell types and tissues. They also underlie environmental impacts on human health, including aging and diseases like cancer. Consequently, cracking the epigenetic 'code' is considered a key challenge in biomedical research.Chromatin... more...
