MicroRNAs in Medicine by Charles H. Lawrie

By Charles H. Lawrie

MicroRNAs in Medicine provides an entry element into the present literature on microRNA for either scientists and clinicians, with an up to date examine what's occurring within the rising box of microRNAs and their relevance to drugs. every one bankruptcy is a complete assessment, with descriptions of the most recent microRNA study written by way of foreign leaders of their box. beginning with an advent to what microRNAs are and the way they functionality, the publication is going directly to discover the function of microRNAs in basic physiological features, infectious illnesses, non-infectious illnesses, melanoma, circulating microRNAs as non-invasive biomarkers, and eventually their capability as novel therapeutics.

Including historical past details at the box in addition to stories of the newest study breakthroughs, MicroRNAs in Medicine is a one-stop resource of data to fulfill the experts and non-specialists alike, attractive to scholars, researchers, and clinicians drawn to figuring out the potential for microRNAs in medication and research.

The Genetic Gods: Evolution and Belief in Human Affairs

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

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

The new literature on complete genome sequences offers considerable proof for the motion of common genetic engineering in evolution. Discoveries approximately common genetic engineering have coincided with fast development in our figuring out of epigenetic keep an eye on and RNA-directed chromatin formation. unique awareness has to be paid to the position of viruses and comparable so-called "parasitic" components within the starting place of genome formatting and traditional genetic engineering services particularly the function of non-random genetic swap operators within the construction of advanced evolutionary innovations.
