  • The Developing Genome: An Introduction to Behavioral Epigeneticsby David S. Moore

    Oxford University Press 2015; US$ 21.99

    Why do we grow up to look, act, and feel as we do? Through most of the twentieth century, scientists and laypeople answered this question by referring to two factors alone: our experiences and our genes. But recent discoveries about how genes work have revealed a new way to understand the developmental origins of our characteristics. These discoveries... more...

  • Annual Plant Reviews, Phosphorus Metabolism in Plantsby William Plaxton; Hans Lambers

    Wiley 2015; US$ 247.50

    The development of phosphorus (P)-efficient crop varieties is urgently needed to reduce agriculture?s current over-reliance on expensive, environmentally destructive, non-renewable and inefficient P-containing fertilizers. The sustainable management of P in agriculture necessitates an exploitation of P-adaptive traits that will enhance the P-acquisition... more...

  • Metallized DNAby Nadine Kammerlander

    Diplomica Verlag 2009; US$ 56.13

    Metallic nanoparticles have been studied intensively during the last decades because of their intriguing optical properties: Due to collective oscillations of the conducting electrons - the so called plasmonic oscillations - they absorb light in the visible spectrum. The resonance frequency thereby sensitively depends on parameters such as the particle... more...

  • Occurrence of intestinal fish parasites in Australiaby Albert Eisenbarth

    Diplomica Verlag 2009; US$ 47.22

    Background: Nematodes of the family Anisakidae are parasites of marine organisms, such as fish and sea mammals, pose a threat to humans and cause the disease anisakiasis. In Australia, little has been done to evaluate the risk of exposure for consumers of infected fish to these parasites. The aim of the present study is to partially address this gap... more...

  • Organelle Geneticsby Charles E. Bullerwell

    Springer 2011; US$ 209.00

    Mitochondria and chloroplasts are eukaryotic organelles that evolved from bacterial ancestors and harbor their own genomes. The gene products of these genomes work in concert with those of the nuclear genome to ensure proper organelle metabolism and biogenesis. This book explores the forces that have shaped the evolution of organelle genomes and the... more...

  • How to Reliably Test for GMOsby Jana el; Mojca Milavec; Dany Morisset

    Springer 2011; US$ 49.95

Traceability and labelling of GMOs is defined in regulations worldwide, demanding accurate and reliable testing to support the requirements of legislation. This Brief provides the current state-of-the-art... more...

  • Grundbegriffe der grünen Gentechnikby Susanne Hiekel

    Springer 2012; US$ 49.99

    Die Autorin analysiert grundlegende Begrifflichkeiten, die in der normativen Argumentation zur gr nen Gentechnik verwendet werden, und liefert damit eine philosophisch fundierte Argumentationsgrundlage. Sie geht von der Annahme aus, dass Begriffe wie z. B. Lebewesen (nat rliche) Art oder Gen in verschiedenen Bedeutungsnetzen unterschiedlich konnotiert... more...

  • Diagnostic, Prognostic and Therapeutic Value of Gene Signaturesby Antonio Russo; Stefano Iacobelli; Juan Iovanna

    Springer 2011; US$ 219.00

    Gene expression studies have revealed diagnostic profiles and upregulation of specific pathways in many solid tumors. The explosion of new information in gene expression profiling could potentially lead to the development of tailored treatments in many solid tumors. In addition many studies are ongoing to validate these signatures also in predicting... more...
