Genetics today is inexorably focused on DNA. The theme of Introduction to Genetics: A Molecular Approach is therefore the progression from molecules (DNA and genes) to processes (gene expression and DNA replication) to systems (cells, organisms and populations). This progression reflects both the basic logic of life and the way in which modern biological research is structured. The molecular approach is particularly suitable for the large number of students for whom genetics is a part of a broader program in biology, biochemistry, the biomedical sciences, and biotechnology. Introduction to Genetics presents the basic facts and concepts with enough depth of knowledge to stimulate students to move on to more advanced aspects of the subject. The book is divided into three parts. Part 1 examines the function of the gene as a unit of biological information. Part 2 studies the role of the gene as a unit of inheritance. And Part 3 explores some of the areas of research that are responsible for the high profile that genetics has in our modern world, from agriculture and industry to medicine and forensics, and the ethical challenges that genetic knowledge imparts.

Die vorliegende 3. Auflage der Molekularen Humangenetik ist völlig neu überarbeitet - unter Berücksichtigung der Entdeckungen, die im Zuge und in der Folge des Human Genome Project gemacht wurden. Die einführenden Kapitel (Teil I) beschreiben die Grundlagen wie DNA-Struktur und -Funktion, Chromosomen, Zellen und Entwicklung, Stammbaumanalysen und grundlegende Techniken im Labor. In Teil II werden die verschiedenen Genomsequenzierungsprojekte und die dadurch ermöglichten Einblicke in Organisation, Expression, Variabilität und Evolution des menschlichen Genoms gezeigt. Die Kartierung, Identifizierung und Diagnose der Ursachen von mendelnden und komplexen Krankheiten sowie Krebs ist Schwerpunkt von Teil III. Der letzte Teil gibt Ausblicke auf die funktionelle Genomik und Bioinformatik, auf Tiermodelle und Therapien. Das Buch soll eine Brücke bilden zwischen den grundlegenden Lehrbüchern und der Forschungsliteratur, sodass auch Interessierte mit relativ wenig Hintergrundwissen zum Thema die neuesten Forschungsergebnisse lesen und beurteilen können.

p”Ein auch heute noch bedeutsamer Klassiker“ Daily Express Sind wir Marionetten unserer Gene? Nach Richard Dawkins ́ vor über 30 Jahren entworfener und heute noch immer provozierender These steuern und dirigieren unsere von Generation zu Generation weitergegebenen Gene uns, um sich selbst zu erhalten. Alle biologischen Organismen dienen somit vor allem dem Überleben und der Unsterblichkeit der Erbanlagen und sind letztlich nur die "Einweg-Behälter" der "egoistischen" Gene. Sind wir Menschen also unserem Gen-Schicksal hilflos ausgeliefert? Dawkins bestreitet dies und macht uns Hoffnung: Seiner Meinung nach sind wir nämlich die einzige Spezies mit der Chance, gegen ihr genetisches Schicksal anzukämpfen.

Die Genetik ist eine der Naturwissenschaften, deren Wissen am schnellsten wächst und deren Erkenntnisse ständig in Bewegung und in der Diskussion sind. "Genetik für Dummies" erklärt, was überhaupt hinter diesem spannenden Thema steckt. Die Autorin Tara Rodden Robinson erklärt die Grundlagen der Vererbungslehre wie die Mendelschen Regeln, wie Zellen aufgebaut sind und sie sich teilen. Sie zeigt, wie die DNA aufgebaut ist, wie sie kopiert und richtig in Proteine übersetzt wird. Außerdem geht sie auf die Bedeutung der Genetik in der Humanmedizin ein, wie Genmutationen und Erbkrankheiten entstehen. Sie erläutert, was beim Klonen passiert und was sich überhaupt hinter dem Begriff Gentechnik verbirgt. Auch die heißen Themen wie Stammzellentherapie und der Einsatz der Genetik in der Rechtsmedizin werden behandelt.

This unique book has been crafted to meet the need of today's students and their teachers by combining the readability and cohesiveness of a single-authored text with comprehensive and up-to-date science.Unlike other larger books where only a small fraction of the content can be sampled or understood, The Cell's language and writing are so efficient and manageable that all the information in the book can be covered in a single semester, providing a good foundation in this subject.The Cell presents a good balance of topics in a clean and concise manner and combines a lucid sketch of the history of molecular genetics with a thorough description of the techniques of modern molecular biology. This new text provides both the necessary fundamentals of this subject as well as the more advanced concepts but without getting lost in too many details. A text extensively reviewed by more than 70 scientific experts, The Cell is ideally suited in length and complexity for sophomore- and junior-level courses. The book focuses on the molecular biology of cells as a unifying theme, with topics such as developmental biology, the nervous system, the immune system, and plant biology being discussed as examples of more general principles. Reviews of selected Key Experiments and topics in Molecular Medicine highlight the experimental nature of modern cell biology and convey the excitement of research in this area.

Since the mid-1950's, primary immunodeficiency disorders have been studied intensively as "experiments of nature" to better understand how the immune system works. The recent progress in immunology, genetics, and molecular biology has introduced a new dimension in our understanding of these diseases: scientists and clinicians can now precisely identify many inherited defects on the molecular level and perform mutation analysis, confirm the diagnosis, screen for carriers, and begin to work on gene therapy. This book reviews our present understanding of immunology, genetics, and molecular biology and focuses on each of the genetically determined primary immunodeficiency disorders. It contains chapters that deal with clinical and pathological issues, and chapters discussing how to establish the diagnosis of primary immunodeficiency diseases and how to treat them. Leading contributors are drawn from an international group of experts who are all leaders in the field, and each syndrome is addressed from both molecular and clinical points of view to bridge the gap between basic and clinical science.
