Download The Genetics of Osteoporosis and Metabolic Bone Disease by Ego Seeman (auth.), Michael J. Econs MD (eds.) PDF

By Ego Seeman (auth.), Michael J. Econs MD (eds.)

Great strides were made via molecular biology in uncovering the genetic section of many health problems that till lately weren't thought of genetic issues. within the Genetics of Osteoporosis and Metabolic Bone disorder, Michael J. Econs and a exotic crew of the world over well known specialists summarize and evaluate those advances within the realizing of osteoporosis and metabolic bone ailment. subject matters variety from an exam of the genetic contributions to osteoporosis and the numerous elements that has to be thought of whilst looking for genes that predispose to osteoporosis, to fresh advances within the medical and molecular organic points of inherited metabolic issues. The ailments lined are either unmarried gene (Mendelian) traits-such as X-linked hypophosphatemic rickets-and such advanced issues as osteoporosis and Paget's ailment. The publication incorporates a dialogue of present method for locating genes that predispose to metabolic bone diseases.
Authoritative and cutting-edge, The Genetics of Osteoporosis and Metabolic Bone affliction deals state-of-the-art endocrinologists, rheumatologists, and geneticists a gold-standard compendium of present wisdom and considering the genetic problems of bone and mineral metabolism, and a valid foundation for the robust new genetic therapies.

Download How Science Works: Evolution: A Student Primer by John Ellis PDF

By John Ellis

Evolution is simply a idea, isn’t it? what's a systematic concept besides? Don’t scientists turn out issues? what's the distinction among a truth, a speculation and a concept in technology? How does clinical pondering fluctuate from spiritual considering? Why are so much top scientists atheists? Are technological know-how and faith appropriate? Why are there such a lot of assorted spiritual ideals yet just one technological know-how? what's the facts for evolution? Why does evolution ensue? when you are drawn to any of those questions and feature a few wisdom of biology, this e-book is for you.

Download Genomes and What to Make of Them by Barry Barnes PDF

By Barry Barnes

The declaration in 2003 that the Human Genome undertaking had accomplished its map of the total human genome was once heralded as a gorgeous medical leap forward: our first complete photograph of the fundamental construction blocks of human existence. given that then, boasts in regards to the benefits—and warnings of the dangers—of genomics have remained front-page information, with all people agreeing that genomics has the capability to notably modify lifestyles as we all know it.
For the nonscientist, the claims and counterclaims are dizzying—what does it fairly suggest to appreciate the genome? Barry Barnes and John Dupré provide a solution to that query and masses extra in Genomes and What to Make of Them, a transparent and energetic account of the genomic revolution and its promise. The ebook opens with a quick background of the technological know-how of genetics and genomics, from Mendel to Watson and Crick and all of the approach as much as Craig Venter; from there the authors delve into using genomics in deciding on evolutionary paths—and what it could possibly let us know, for instance, approximately how a ways we actually have come from our ape ancestors. Barnes and Dupré then examine either the ability and dangers of genetics, from the commercial strength of plant genomes to overblown claims that sure human genes could be without delay tied to such features as intelligence or homosexuality. finally, the authors argue, we're now dwelling with a brand new wisdom as strong in its approach as nuclear physics­, and the stark offerings that face us—between organic struggle and gene remedy, a brand new eugenics or a brand new agricultural revolution—will call for the total engagement of either scientists and citizens. 

Written in trouble-free language yet with out denying the complexity of the problems, Genomes and What to Make of Them is either an updated primer and a blueprint for the future.

Download Genes, Cells and Brains: The Promethean Promises of the New by Steven Rose, Hilary Rose PDF

By Steven Rose, Hilary Rose

Our fates lie in our genes and never within the stars, acknowledged James Watson, co-discoverer of the constitution of DNA. yet Watson couldn't have envisioned the dimensions of the now devoted to this new frontier. because the release of the multibillion-dollar Human Genome venture, the biosciences have promised miracle therapies and radical new methods of knowing who we're. yet the place is the hot global we have been promised?

In Genes, Cells and Brains, feminist sociologist Hilary Rose and neuroscientist Steven Rose tackle the bioscience and its claims. studying the institution of biobanks, the rivalries among private and non-private genesequencers, and the increase of stem phone learn, they ask why the promised cornucopia of well-being advantages has didn't emerge and show the questionable firm that has grown out of bioethics.

The human physique is changing into a commodity, and the unfulfilled provides of the technology at the back of this revolution recommend profound failings in genomics itself.
