The Genetic Gods: Evolution and Belief in Human Affairs

John Avise provides a overview of latest molecular biology that's fairly obtainable to the 'lay' reader with a few previous publicity to the overall quarter of evolutionary-genetics. The discussions are a little philosophically charged (i. e. they don't stay unavoidably technical) and comment on social, emotional, and theological matters too.

Natural Genetic Engineering and Natural Genome Editing (Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences)

The hot literature on complete genome sequences offers plentiful proof for the motion of typical genetic engineering in evolution. Discoveries approximately average genetic engineering have coincided with quick growth in our figuring out of epigenetic keep watch over and RNA-directed chromatin formation. precise cognizance should be paid to the position of viruses and similar so-called "parasitic" components within the foundation of genome formatting and average genetic engineering features in particular the function of non-random genetic switch operators within the construction of complicated evolutionary innovations.

Evolution and Genetics of Populations. Volume 4: Variability within and among natural populations

"Wright's perspectives approximately inhabitants genetics and evolution are so basic and so entire that each severe scholar needs to study those books firsthand. . . . ebook of this treatise is a huge occasion in evolutionary biology. "-Daniel L. Hartl, BioScience

As a rough rule of thumb, a high-resolution NMR structure should preferably have approximately 20 (distance or dihedral) restraints per residue (Berman and Westbrook, 2004). If no experimental structural information is available for the target biomolecule, homology modeling can provide structures to guide the search for novel lead compounds. , 2000). , 2003). A number of more general issues associated with the selection and preparation of a receptor structure should be noted. In many structures, ions are required for structural or functional purposes.
