SYNOPSIS : Neurogenetics is intended for any physician or scientist who manages patients with inherited diseases of the nervous system. It presents the clinical phenotypes of the most commonly inherited neurologic diseases, and their molecular pathogenesis, followed by a description of the appropriate tests to be used in diagnosis. Two introductory chapters familiarize the nongeneticist with medical genetic terminology and molecular genetic techniques useful in the analysis of genetic disease and genetic testing. Subsequent chapters examine major neurologic disorders caused by single defects, as well as disease phenotypes such as Alzheimer disease or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis which may be caused by defects in single genes, but may also be seen as sporadic diseases. The genetic components of other common neurologic disorders, such as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, migraine, and stroke are all covered in detail. The final chapter discusses genetic counseling of symptomatic and pre-symptomatic individuals. Throughout, chapters discuss genotype/phenotype correlations and, where appropriate, animal models for inherited human neurologic diseases. Several chapters are devoted to recently discovered diseases caused by unstable DNA repeats. Special emphasis is placed on conveying how DNA testing can be applied to the daily practice of geneticists and neurologists.

SYNOPSIS : The #1 NEW YORK TIMES Bestseller A New York Times Notable Book A Washington Post and Seattle Times Best Book of the Year From the Pulitzer Prizeโ€“winning author of The Emperor of All Maladiesโ€”a fascinating history of the gene and โ€œa magisterial account of how human minds have laboriously, ingeniously picked apart what makes us tickโ€ (Elle). โ€œDr. Siddhartha Mukherjee dazzled readers with his Pulitzer Prize-winning The Emperor of All Maladies in 2010. That achievement was evidently just a warm-up for his virtuoso performance in The Gene: An Intimate History, in which he braids science, history, and memoir into an epic with all the range and biblical thunder of Paradise Lostโ€ (The New York Times). In this biography Mukherjee brings to life the quest to understand human heredity and its surprising influence on our lives, personalities, identities, fates, and choices. โ€œMukherjee expresses abstract intellectual ideas through emotional storiesโ€ฆ[and] swaddles his medical rigor with rhapsodic tenderness, surprising vulnerability, and occasional flashes of pure poetryโ€ (The Washington Post). Throughout, the story of Mukherjeeโ€™s own familyโ€”with its tragic and bewildering history of mental illnessโ€”reminds us of the questions that hang over our ability to translate the science of genetics from the laboratory to the real world. In riveting and dramatic prose, he describes the centuries of research and experimentationโ€”from Aristotle and Pythagoras to Mendel and Darwin, from Boveri and Morgan to Crick, Watson and Franklin, all the way through the revolutionary twenty-first century innovators who mapped the human genome. โ€œA fascinating and often sobering history of how humans came to understand the roles of genes in making us who we areโ€”and what our manipulation of those genes might mean for our futureโ€ (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel), The Gene is the revelatory and magisterial history of a scientific idea coming to life, the most crucial science of our time, intimately explained by a master. โ€œThe Gene is a book we all should readโ€ (USA TODAY).

SYNOPSIS : Genes quickly established itself as one of the foremost teaching resources in modern biology following its first publication in 1983. It has retained that position through two further editions (1985 and 1987). It was the first textbook to provide a unified view of the molecular biology ofprokaryotes (bacteria) and eukaryotes (higher organisms - animals and plants) but this integrated view has always been supported by descriptions of the approaches that the researchers are currently using, making it the most consistently up-to-date account of the rapid advances which have been madein this field during the 1980s. The purpose of this book is to give an account of what is known about the structure and function of genes in both eukaryotes and prokaryotes. The author provides a authoritative, consistent discussion of the complex biochemical and genetic answers to some crucial questions. What is a gene? How isit reproduced? How are its characteristics conceived or modified within individuals or over evolutionary time? How is it expressed? What controls expression? In effect it covers the ground that now constitutes the core of any modern course in genetics or biochemistry above the most elementarylevel.

SYNOPSIS : The promise and peril of having children in an age of genetic tests and interventions. The must-read summary of โ€œThe Gene Machine: How Genetic Technologies Are Changing the Way We Have Kids โ€” and the Kids We Have,โ€ by Bonnie Rochman. This complete summary of Rochmanโ€™s book covers a variety of topics from breast cancer to Tay-Sachs, several pre-natal genetic mapping technologies, genome sequencing, rare disease diagnosis, silencing of a gene, and repairing gene defects using gene editing tools (CRISPR). It covers the question of testing for Down syndrome and abortion, and the emotionally and morally fraught decisions individuals are forced to make when confronting the information these tests reveal. In the past few years, genetic testing has expanded into a full array of testing available prenatally, postnatally, and even pre-conception. A more targeted analysis has allowed women to weed out unhealthy embryos before attempting pregnancy. Genome sequencing gives the childโ€™s blueprint, including a predisposition to diseases such as Down syndrome, early-onset Alzheimerโ€™s, or breast cancer. Having access to so much information can be empowering, enlightening, confusing, and frightening. It can enable parents to prepare for a child with special needs. Or it could allow them to end the pregnancy. This is a must read for those planning on having kids, or for those who simply want to learn about genetic technologies. This guide includes: * Book Summaryโ€”helps you understand the key concepts. * Online Videosโ€”covers the concepts in more depth. Value-added from this guide: * Save time * Understand key concepts * Expand your knowledge

SYNOPSIS : Molecular Approaches to Gene Expression and Protein Structure documents the proceedings of the international symposium ""Gene and Protein Structure"" held in conjunction with the 22nd annual meeting of the Chilean Society of Biology at the campus of the Universidad Austral de Chile in Valdivia, Chile, December 1979. Organized by the Chilean Society of Biology, the symposium was designed not only to explore the concepts involved in the evolution of genes and protein structure but to bring together scientists from the United States and their counterparts from the Chilean academic institutions. The subject matter presented in this book reflects the research interests and experiences of the participating authors. The emphasis, in general, is on molecular and regulatory processes and cellular control mechanisms. The chapters include reviews on selected areas of interest written in a manner intelligible to newcomers to biological research, and present an in-depth analysis of the work with a balanced presentation of facts, concepts, and projections.

SYNOPSIS : The genome's been mapped. But what does it mean? Arguably the most significant scientific discovery of the new century, the mapping of the twenty-three pairs of chromosomes that make up the human genome raises almost as many questions as it answers. Questions that will profoundly impact the way we think about disease, about longevity, and about free will. Questions that will affect the rest of your life. Genome offers extraordinary insight into the ramifications of this incredible breakthrough. By picking one newly discovered gene from each pair of chromosomes and telling its story, Matt Ridley recounts the history of our species and its ancestors from the dawn of life to the brink of future medicine. From Huntington's disease to cancer, from the applications of gene therapy to the horrors of eugenics, Matt Ridley probes the scientific, philosophical, and moral issues arising as a result of the mapping of the genome. It will help you understand what this scientific milestone means for you, for your children, and for humankind.
