Mendel's Legacy: The Origin of Classical Genetics

Mendel's Legacy: The Origin of Classical Genetics Lowest new price: $34.35
Lowest used price: $9.85
List price: $47.00
Author: Elof Axel Carlson
Brand: Brand: Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press

This latest book by Elof Carlson (The Unfit) is a first history of classical genetics, the era in which the chromosome theory of heredity was proposed and developed. Highly illustrated and based heavily on early 20th century original sources, the book traces the roots of genetics in breeding analysis and studies of cytology, evolution, and reproductive biology that began in Europe but were synthesized in the United States through new Ph.D. programs and expanded academic funding. Carlson argues that, influenced largely by new technologies and instrumentation, the life sciences progressed though incremental change rather than paradigm shifts, and he describes how molecular biology emerged from the key ideas and model systems of classical genetics. Readable and original, this narrative will interest historians and science educators as well as today's practitioners of genetics.

Genetic diseases affect the lives of millions of people, regardlessof age, race, religion, ethnicity, or social status. Every day,discoveries point to the complex role of genetics in commondisorders such as cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer's disease.Experience and research have shown that being at risk for a geneticdisease can have devastating psychological effects on patients andtheir families. Genetic counseling helps families and patients copewith the medical, psychological, and social effects of geneticdiseases. It is to this end that genetic counselors must besensitive to the needs of patients and families, understand thepsychological meaning of clients' behaviors, and communicate thatunderstanding in ways that leave clients emotionally enriched,psychologically stronger, and more competent to deal with their ownlives.

This insightful book covers topics such as:
* Management of guilt and shame
* Roles of directiveness in patient care
* How a healthcare professional can expand counseling skills
* Understanding the distinction between education andcounseling
* Detailed analysis of a genetic counseling session


Providing practical and clinically meaningful ways to enhancecounseling skills of genetic counselors, physicians, nurses, socialworkers, and other healthcare professionals, Psyche and Helix:Psychological Aspects of Genetic Counseling consists of essayscompiled over two decades, which will serve as a primary source ofinformation for healthcare professionals who render geneticcounseling.

In the Beginning Was the Worm: Finding the Secrets of Life in a Tiny Hermaphrodite

In the Beginning Was the Worm: Finding the Secrets of Life in a Tiny Hermaphrodite Lowest new price: $40.08
Lowest used price: $2.09
Author: Andrew Brown

This is the story of how three men won the Nobel Prize for their research on the humble nematode worm C. elegans; how their extraordinary discovery led to the sequencing of the human genome; how a global multibillion-dollar industry was born; and how the mysteries of life were revealed in a tiny, brainless worm.

In 1998 the nematode worm―perhaps the most intensively studied animal on earth―was the first multicellular organism ever to have its genome sequenced and its DNA mapped and read. "When we understand the worm, we will understand life," predicted John Sulston, one of the three Nobel laureates, and his prediction proved astonishingly accurate. Four years later, the research that led to this extraordinary event garnered three scientists a Nobel Prize. Along with Robert Horvitz and Sydney Brenner, Sulston discovered the phenomenon of programmed cell death in the worm, an essential concept that explains how biological development occurs in animal life and, as Horvitz later showed, how it occurs in human life. C. elegans is about as simple as an animal can be, but understanding its genetic organization is helping to reveal the mechanisms of life and, by extension, the mechanisms of our own lives. In the Beginning Was the Worm shows that in order to unlock the secrets of the human genome we must first understand the worm.

But this story is about more than just the worm. It is about how an eccentric group of impassioned scientists toiled in near anonymity for years, driven only by a deep passion for knowledge and scientific discovery. It is the story of countless hours of research, immense ambition, and one of the greatest discoveries in human history.

Nature and Nurture: The Complex Interplay of Genetic and Environmental Influences on Human Behavior and Development

Nature and Nurture: The Complex Interplay of Genetic and Environmental Influences on Human Behavior and Development Lowest new price: $93.95
Lowest used price: $24.95
List price: $93.95

What does it mean to find a gene or set of genes that are associated with ADHD, schizophrenia, or autism? Could we eradicate such diseases from our species through gene therapy? Is it possible to eradicate from our genome the genetic material that predisposes us to be too aggressive, too shy, less intelligent, or not active enough? Who has the political power and/or moral authority to make these decisions?

The premise of Nature and Nurture is that the complexity of the transactions between nature and nurture--between genes and the environment from the cellular to the cultural level--make these questions incredibly complex and in need of careful attention by educators, scientists, the public, and policymakers. A product of the conference held at Brown University in 2001, this book suggests that genes and environments work together interactively in a complex and closely intertwined fashion. The contributors to this book--biologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and economists--present knowledge that enables research and application to transcend the traditional question of whatever variance or significance is attributed to genetics versus environment in the development of a particular behavioral trait.

This book presents a variety of views on the current status of knowledge about the ways in which dynamic, developmental, mutually interactive systems in the genetic and environmental domains operate. The chapters represent contributions from different perspectives.


What a Time I Am Having: Selected Letters of Max Perutz

What a Time I Am Having: Selected Letters of Max Perutz Lowest new price: $27.47
Lowest used price: $5.99
List price: $40.00
Brand: Brand: Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press

Selected by his daughter, Vivien, from Max Perutz's voluminous correspondence, the letters reproduced here portray their author with a spontaneity and directness no autobiography could have matched. They chronicle Perutz's adventurous life through his own vivid, erudite and humorous pen, documenting the hopes, roadblocks and moments of elation of his sixty-year quest to understand the molecular biology of hemoglobin. The first great step in this quest unraveling the molecular structure of hemoglobin earned Perutz the 1962 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Narrated against a backdrop of family and friends, politics and war, literature, travels, and Max's beloved mountains, these letters provide rare insight into the thoughts of a remarkable and very human scientist, and delightful sketches of some of the people he encountered. Starting with lively letters to a girlfriend written in his youth in Vienna and the impressions of a young scientist in Cambridge, the letters progress to the desperate pleas of an "enemy alien" interned in Canada during World War II. The diary of Perutz's subsequent super-secret war work for the British to build a floating ice airstrip in the North Atlantic, ardent campaigning letters to scientists and politicians, and self-deprecating stories of his own mishaps written to amuse his children and grandchildren are some of the many highlights of these fascinating letters, unique in the annals of recent scientific history. This book is a companion to Georgina Ferry's Max Perutz and the Secret of Life. Together these volumes provide a portrait of an extraordinary character in the development of molecular biology.
