  • Tinkeringby Gregory R. Bock; Jamie A. Goode

    Wiley 2007; US$ 226.00 US$ 203.40

    Much recent research in evolutionary developmental biology has focused on the origin of new body plans. However, most evolutionary change at the population and species level consists of tinkering: small-scale alterations in developmental pathways within a single body plan. Such microevolutionary events have been well studied on a population genetic... more...

  • Creation and Governance of Human Genetic Research Databasesby OECD Publishing

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2006; US$ 49.00

    Scientists have known for years that complex diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, arise from a combination of lifestyle, environmental, genetic and random factors. Large-scale study of populations may contribute significantly to science’s understanding of the complex multi-factorial basis of disease and to improvements... more...

  • Ecological Geneticsby David J. Merrell

    University of Minnesota Press 1977; US$ 40.00 US$ 34.00

    Ecological Genetics was first published in 1981. Population genetics and population ecology originally developed independently, but are now merging into a discipline known as ecological genetics. Thus far, the union has been an uneasy one, and this book is an effort to further the union. The ecological geneticist is an experimental naturalist, concerned... more...

  • Cloning of Frogs, Mice, and Other Animalsby Robert Gilmore McKinnell

    University of Minnesota Press 1981; US$ 16.00 US$ 13.60

    Cloning of Frogs, Mice, and Other Animals was first published as Cloning: A Biologist Reports in 1979 and was reissued under the present title in 1985. When cell biologist Robert McKinnell first wrote his layman's guide to cloning in 1979, no creature higher than a frog had been successfully cloned. In the years since then, scientific advances... more...

  • Comparative Genomicsby James R. Brown

    CRC Press 2007; US$ 209.95

    When genomic research first came on the scene, much of the biomedical research community viewed it as a limited venture with limited potential. We now know that such an assessment was both highly premature and wonderfully inaccurate. In the last ten years, we’ve witnessed such remarkable acceleration in the merger of basic and applied genomic research... more...
