View: 9143Concepts of Genetics is a one semester introductory genetics text that explains genetics concepts in a concise, engaging and up-to-date manner. Rob Brooker, author of market leading texts in Genetics and Intro Biology for majors, brings his clear and accessible writing style to this briefer genetics text. He employs the use of experimentation and stresses the fundamentals of the Scientific Method in presenting genetics concepts, then further engages the reader through the use of formative assessment to assist the student in understanding the core genetic principles. The introduction of Learning Outcomes throughout the chapter in the 2nd edition helps the student focus on the key concepts presented in the chapter. Concepts of Genetics, 2e also stresses developing problem-solving skills with the new feature “Genetic TIPS” that breaks a problem down into conceptual parts (Topic, Information, Problem-Solving Strategy) to help students work through the answer. The 2nd edition will be more focused on core concepts with the narrowing of book content by eliminating specialty chapters that many courses do not have time to cover in detail (the full chapters on Developmental Genetics and Evolutionary Genetics—these general topics are discussed elsewhere, but not in the amount of detail in the first edition). The author has added new information regarding epigenetics and material on personalized medicine. The integration of the genetics text and the power of digital world are now complete with McGraw-Hill's ConnectPlus including LearnSmart. Users who purchase Connect Plus receive access to SmartBook and to the full online ebook version of the textbook.

View: 594The first edition of this book, published in 1979, was found useful by many stu dents and was well received by the scientific community. Since the book was first written, human genetics has undergone dramatic developments, mainly due to the introduction of new concepts and techniques from molecular biology. Con comitantly, "basic" scientists have become increasingly interested in problems of human genetics. More than 700 human genes have been mapped, genes of previ ously unsuspected complexity -such as the gene for factor VIII - have become known, and the structure of noncoding DNA sequences is being analyzed with the aim of understanding gene regulation. DNA diagnosis is being rapidly intro duced into medical genetics. All this, as well as the extensive progress in most other fields of human and medical genetics, had to be considered in the prepara tion of this second edition. The book has been extensively revised and rewritten. A substantial new section dealing with gene and chromosomal structure at the molecular level has been added. The newer knowledge of molecular genetics has been incorporated, and the conceptual and practical contribution of DNA methods (for example in the hemoglobinopathies and in some other diseases) is discussed. Many new figures and tables have been added, and some illustrative material has been replaced. We have read carefully the many friendly and sometimes flattering reviews of the first edition.

View: 6548A comprehensive collection of perspectives by experts in mycobacterial molecular biology Mycobacterium tuberculosis causes one in four avoidable deaths in the developing world and kills more adults than malaria, AIDS, and all tropical diseases combined. Tuberculosis was named a global health emergency by the World Health Organization, a distinction no other disease has received. Although the study of mycobacterial genetics has expanded dramatically, with new investigations into mycobacterial growth, replication, metabolism, physiology, drug susceptibility, and virulence, most of the problems in tuberculosis control that existed in 2000 remain today. Advances in our understanding of mycobacterial genetics have been reflected in exciting recent developments. New diagnostic approaches can identify drug resistance within a few hours, promising new drugs are progressing through the pipeline and into the clinic, and a range of newly developed vaccines are being evaluated. It is an exciting time as the fruits of 30 years of intensive genetic investigation are finally beginning to emerge. Written by leading experts in the field, Molecular Genetics of Mycobacteria, Second Edition, • Discusses key areas of current research in mycobacterial genetics • Explains the genetics of the physiology, metabolism, and drug sensitivities of M. tuberculosis • Presents genetic approaches for manipulating M. tuberculosis This book is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the molecular genetics and molecular biology of mycobacteria.
