Human Genetics: Concepts and Applications, ninth edition, is a text that clearly explains what genes are, how they function, how they interact with the environment, and how our understanding of genetics has changed since completion of the human genome project. Meticulously updated, focused on concepts, and rich with personal stories from people whose lives are dramatically affected by the principles being discussed, Human Genetics is a textbook that... more...

This volume provides detailed coverage of modern methods for molecular analysis of enzymes and enzyme systems that function in the maintenance of genome integrity. Coverage areas include base excision repair, nucleotide excision repair, translesion DNA polymerases, mismatch repair, genetic recombination, and double strand break repair. *A laboratory standard for more than 40 years*Over 400 volumes strong*Also... more...

The publication of this fully updated edition of A Dictionary of Genetics coincides with the hundredth anniversary of the introduction of the term genetics by William Bateson in 1906 at the Third International Conference on Genetics. Since then genetics has made tremendous advances in knowledge and technique and now occupies a pivotal position in the life sciences as the most powerful means for probing fundamental questions in cell biology,... more...

Andrew Baker and a noted panel of expert investigators describe today's most powerful molecular methods for investigating the pathogenesis of vascular disease. These detailed, easy-to-follow techniques range from methods that have been used successfully to identify specific mutations involved in cardiovascular disorders, to those for transferring genes associated with cardiovascular disease into various vascular cell types by in vitro and in vivo... more...

At the beginning of this century enormous progress had been made in genetics. The Human Genome Project finished sequencing human DNA. It seemed it was only a matter of time until we had all the answers to the secrets of life on this planet. The cutting-edge of biology, however, is telling us that we still don't even know all of the questions. How is it that, despite each cell in your body carrying exactly the same DNA, you don't have teeth growing out... more...


Edited by leading experts in the EU and the US, this book provides a unique coverage of novel technology approaches for the detection of highly related variants of dangerous agents and novel therapy options. A must-have for all professionals dealing with BSL3 and/or BSL 4 agents

HUMAN HEREDITY presents the concepts underlying human genetics in clear, concise language and provides relevant examples that you can apply to yourself, your family, and your work environment. Author Michael Cummings explains the origin, nature, and amount of genetic diversity present in the human population and how that diversity has been shaped by natural selection. The artwork and accompanying media visually support the material by teaching rather... more...

Prostate cancer (PCa) is the most common newly diagnosed cancer among men in the United States today. With the advent of the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test, the number of newly diagnosed cases has increased tremendously. The rates of PCa have increased so dramatically over the last decade that the age-adjusted incidence rate of PCa is no greater than that for any other cancer among men in the United States. Although PCa rates have risen steadily... more...

Molecular medicine is the application of gene or DNA based knowledge to the modern practice of medicine. This book provides contemporary insights into how the genetic revolution is influencing medical thinking and practice on a broad front including clinical medicine, innovative therapies and forensic medicine. * Extensively revised just after the completion of the Human Genome Project, it provides the latest in... more...

The development of gene medicine based on the concept of molecular therapy has opened new medical horizons. Among the many techniques in gene medicine, gene design and delivery are especially significant in clinical applications. This book presents state-of-the-art information on non-viral gene-delivery techniques, covering a broad spectrum of disciplines that include chemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, and pharmacokinetics. Major sections... more...
