Oxford Desk Reference Clinical Genetics (Oxford Desk Reference Series)

Oxford Desk Reference Clinical Genetics (Oxford Desk Reference Series) Lowest new price: $125.01
Lowest used price: $33.22
List price: $120.00
Author: Jane A. Hurst

This important new book provides a useful, easy-to-use guide to the clinical consultation in genetics. It covers the process of diagnosis, investigation, management, and counselling for patients. The authors have used their experience to devise a practical clinical approach to many common genetic referrals, both out-patient and ward-based. The most common Mendelian disorders, chromosomal disorders, congenital anomalies and syndromes are covered. In addition there are chapters on familial cancer and pregnancy-related topics such as fetal anomalies, teratogens, prenatal and pre-implantation diagnosis. The book also provides information on the less common situations, where management is particularly complex, or important genetic concepts are illustrated.
Most of the topics fit onto a double-page spread ensuring that the book is an accessible, quick reference for the clinic or hospital consultation. Where available, diagnostic criteria for specific conditions are included as well as contact details for support groups. The book is well-illustrated and has an up-to-date bibliography and glossaries of terms used in genetics and dysmorphology. This accessible book is designed for use by consultants and trainees in clinical genetics, genetic counsellors and paediatricians, particularly those working in paediatric neurology, neonatology or child development.

Genetic Disorders of Human Sexual Development (Oxford Monographs on Medical Genetics)

Genetic Disorders of Human Sexual Development (Oxford Monographs on Medical Genetics) Lowest new price: $17.75
Lowest used price: $16.75
List price: $125.00
Author: Leonard Pinsky

There have been many exciting advances in our understanding of mammalian sex determination and differentiation in the last decade. Using these advances to elucidate clinical conditions of abnormal sexual development, the authors bring together great expertise in molecular endocrinology, molecular genetics, and dysmorphology. The text begins with a discussion of normal gonadal and sexual development that presents enough embryology, biochemistry, and endocrinology to make the remaining chapters easy to assimilate. Then the authors discuss overarching clinical issues that are common to genetic abnormalities of gonadal and sexual development, providing a detailed account of genetic causes of gonadal maldevelopment, followed by a compendium of the singular, syndromal, endocrinologic, and systemic-metabolic genetic causes of sexual maldevelopment. The final section describes genetic forms of gamete failure.
Seldom dogmatic, this unconventional textbook frequently presents alternatives, highlights speculation, raises questions, and attempts to provide answers. Yet it will be a uniquely valuable reference on an area of genetic medicine where much has happened in recent years. This book will be welcomed by medical geneticists, genetic counselors, endocrinologists, gynecologists, urologists, and students who need fully-referenced information about the genetic aspects of humans sexual maldevelopment in order to better manage their patients and their patients families.

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: $40.16
Lowest used price: $2.59
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.

Dwarfism: Medical and Psychosocial Aspects of Profound Short Stature

Dwarfism: Medical and Psychosocial Aspects of Profound Short Stature Lowest new price: $33.09
Lowest used price: $10.00
List price: $38.00
Author: Betty M. Adelson PhD
Brand: Brand: Johns Hopkins University Press

This landmark volume is the first to trace the exciting developments in the field of dwarfism research and treatment over the past century―particularly during the past fifty years. Dr. Betty M. Adelson, a psychologist, has unearthed and synthesized the most significant information about dwarfing conditions, from articles written a century ago to current books and specialized databases.

Highlighting the outstanding contributions of Dr. Victor McKusick and several of his colleagues, Dr. Adelson reveals how dwarfism specialists have helped redefine the nature of medical care―transforming it from an authoritarian enterprise into a holistic, collaborative venture among physicians, affected individuals, and their families.

The parent of an adult dwarf daughter, Adelson examines the social forces that affect the dwarfism community. She offers personal descriptions of the day-to-day challenges dwarf individuals face and portrays their accomplishments. Insightful and accessible, this work will prove a valuable resource for affected individuals, their families, and medical professionals―physicians, nurses, genetic counselors, social workers, psychologists, and medical students.

Mouse Genetics: Concepts and Applications Lowest new price: $95.45
Lowest used price: $16.52
List price: $155.00
Author: Lee M. Silver
Brand: Brand: Oxford University Press, USA

Mouse Genetics offers for the first time in a single comprehensive volume a practical guide to mouse breeding and genetics. Nearly all human genes are present in the mouse genome, making it an ideal organism for genetic analyses of both normal and abnormal aspects of human biology. Written as a convenient reference, this book provides a complete description of the laboratory mouse, the tools used in analysis, and procedures for carrying out genetic studies, along with background material and statistical information for use in ongoing data analysis. It thus serves two purposes, first to provide students with an introduction to the mouse as a model system for genetic analysis, and to give practicing scientists a detailed guide for performing breeding studies and interpreting experimental results. All topics are developed completely, with full explanations of critical concepts in genetics and molecular biology. As investigators around the world are rediscovering both the heuristic and practical value of the mouse genome, the demand for a succinct introduction to the subject has never been greater. Mouse Genetics is intended to meet the needs of this wide audience.
