Genetics

  • Cancer, Autism and Their Epigenetic Rootsby K. John Morrow Jr.; Elaine A. Moore

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 40.00

    This book considers the branch of heredity known as "Epigenetics" and its implications for a variety of diseases in humans and animals. After background information on the growth in our understanding of genetics, and discussions of the molecular mechanisms of the epigenetic control of gene expression, the book moves into its main focus: the... more...

  • Biology of European Sea Bassby F. Javier Sánchez Vázquez; José A. Muñoz-Cueto

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 129.95

    Biology of European Seabass  presents up-to-date reviews on key topics of seabass biology, written by leading scientific experts with extensive knowledge of seabass as well as their respective field of expertise. The book covers the biology and ecology of the different sea basses and the latest findings in molecular biology, physiology, and... more...

  • Molecular mechanisms and physiology of diseaseby Nilanjana Maulik; Tom Karagiannis

    Springer 2014; US$ 239.00

    In a simplified form, epigenetics refers to heritable changes in phenotype that are not due to changes in the underlying DNA sequence. In this book, epigenetic mechanisms of regulation and dysregulation in health and disease are explored in great depth. Detailed chapters on epigenetic processes including DNA methylation and chromatin post-translational... more...

  • Filaggrinby Jacob P. Thyssen; Howard Maibach

    Springer 2014; US$ 79.99

    Filaggrin gene mutations are common in Europeans and their descendants, as well as in Asians, reaching a prevalence of up to 10%. Filaggrin proteins are crucial for skin homeostasis as their metabolites maintain skin hydration, keep the skin pH low, and provide protection against solar radiation. FLG mutation carriers suffer from dry and scaly skin... more...

  • Consanguinity – Its Impact, Consequences and Managementby Lutfi A. Jaber; Gabrielle J. Halpern

    Bentham Science Publishers 2014; US$ 49.00

    Consanguineous marriages have been practiced for hundreds of years, predominantly by Moslems. Although it is generally accepted among communities that the social advantages outweigh other, the rate of congenital malformations and genetic diseases among the offspring borne of consanguineous marriages is higher and an increase in sterility, rates of... more...

  • Dissecting Regulatory Interactions of RNA and Proteinby Marvin Jens

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    The work described in this book is an excellent example of interdisciplinary research in systems biology. It shows how concepts and approaches from the field of physics can be efficiently used to answer biological questions and reports on a novel methodology involving creative computer-based analyses of high-throughput biological data. Many of the... more...

  • Stem Cells: From Basic Research to Therapy, Volume Twoby Federico Calegari; Claudia Waskow

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 159.95

    The second volume in the Stem Cells series concentrates on the mechanisms of stem cell regeneration in the adult organism with a view towards understanding how lost tissue can be replaced during adulthood and aging. The second focus of this volume is on stem cell identification and manipulation, including applications in basic research, medicine,... more...

  • Frontiers in Autism Researchby Valerie W. Hu

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 205.00

    This unique book focuses on the emerging and expanding areas of research on autism spectrum disorders (ASD). These areas include investigations of genome-wide genetics and epigenetic contributions, metabolic and immune dysfunction, gene-environment interactions, as well as the role of alternative splicing, RNA editing, and noncoding RNAs in gene regulation.... more...

  • Signs and Symptoms of Genetic Conditionsby Louanne Hudgins; Helga V. Toriello; Gregory M. Enns

    Oxford University Press, USA 2014; US$ 77.99

    Connecting an abnormal physical exam to a possible genetic condition is a daunting and inexact task for any physician, be they a primary care provider, non-geneticist specialist, or fellowship-trained geneticist. Comprising 31 clinical protocols from the world's foremost clinical geneticists, Signs and Symptoms of Genetic Conditions provides a... more...

  • Criminological Theoryby Tim Owen

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 95.00

    In an age of rapid advances in behavioural genetics, this book applies a unique genetic-social framework to the study of crime and criminal behaviour. Drawing upon evidence from evolutionary psychology and behavioural genetics, it offers an up-to-date and balanced account of the mutuality between genes and environment. more...
