Genetics by Daniel L. Hartl; Bruce CochraneWhere Modern Meets ClassicalGenetics: Analysis of Genes and Genomes is a resource uniquely suited for learning and applying genetics to our world. Its DNA first presentation frames the discussion of genetics in modern terms, which provides the user the context to then understand its Mendelian history. Genetics continues to treat transmission genetics, molecular genetics, and evolutionary genetics as fully integrated subjects and provides students with an unprecedented understanding of the basic process of gene transmission, mutation, expression, and regulation. A new unit structure with self-contained chapters provides the flexibility to fit any course design, whether it be Mendel-early, Chromosome-early, or a Genome-first approach. The dynamism of genetics is also perfectly captured, as coverage of technological advances is woven together with ethical controversies. Problem-solving is a core element to this experimental discipline, and the ninth edition of Genetics is unparalleled in the tools it provides to unlock this fascinating subject. This rich resource allows students copious opportunities to practice and learn by using the clearly-presented mathematical concepts and exercises and chapter problems that encourage students to analyze and apply new skills.

Human Genetics by Ricki LewisToday human genetics is for everyone. It is about variation more than about illnesses and increasingly about the common rather than about the rare. Once an obscure science or an occasional explanation for an odd collection of symptoms human genetics is now part of everyday conversation. By coming to know genetic backgrounds people can control their environments in more healthy ways. Genetic knowledge is therefore both informative and empowering. The 10th edition of Human Genetics: Concepts and Applications shows students how and why that is true.

Molecular Biology of the Cell by Bruce Alberts; Alexander Johnson; Julian Lewis; David Morgan; Martin Raff; Keith Roberts; Peter WalterAs the amount of information in biology expands dramatically, it becomes increasingly important for textbooks to distill the vast amount of scientific knowledge into concise principles and enduring concepts. As with previous editions, Molecular Biology of the Cell, Sixth Edition accomplishes this goal with clear writing and beautiful illustrations. The Sixth Edition has been extensively revised and updated with the latest research in the field of cell biology, and it provides an exceptional framework for teaching and learning. The entire illustration program has been greatly enhanced. Protein structures better illustrate structure-function relationships, icons are simpler and more consistent within and between chapters, and micrographs have been refreshed and updated with newer, clearer, or better images. As a new feature, each chapter now contains intriguing open-ended questions highlighting "What We Don't Know," introducing students to challenging areas of future research. Updated end-of-chapter problems reflect new research discussed in the text. Thought-provoking end-of-chapter questions have been expanded to all chapters, including questions on developmental biology, tissues and stem cells, the immune system, and pathogens.

Oxford Dictionary of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology by Richard Cammack (Editor); Tony Smith; Peter Campbell; Howard Parish; John Stirling; Frank Vella; Teresa AtwoodOver the last few years, the language of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology has expanded enormously to the extent that few scientists can expect to be familiar with all the terms and concepts. This is partly due the massive influence of the Genome and successive "-omics" projects which havedeveloped in to many new areas of research. At the same time, terms from other subject areas - including mathematics, statistics, physics and other life sciences - appear increasingly in the biochemical literature.The Oxford Dictionary of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology provides a comprehensive and 'encyclopaedic' survey of modern biochemistry and molecular biology. This new edition of the popular dictionary has been comprehensively reviewed and updated to include many important new concepts and words. Theentries are short but informative, providing up-to-date information on a broad range of topics, including definitions for terms from the fields of Bioinformatics, Biophysics, Cell Biology, Chemistry, Genetics, Immunology, Mathematics, Microbiology, Pharmacology, Systems Biology, and Toxicology.There are over 21000 main entries, which include: details of biochemical substances and the processes in which they are involved, methods and concepts in molecular biology, and definitions of biochemical symbols and abbreviations. Each entry is accessibly written. They point out pitfalls where termsare often confused, and explain the precise syntax of biochemical terms such as Greek letters and other formatting, which are invariably lost when searching the Internet. In addition, the dictionary is generously illustrated with over 900 chemical structures.The Oxford Dictionary of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology will serve as an invaluable reference text for student and professional biochemists and molecular biologists seeking information both from within and outside their own fields. It will also be of relevance and use to a broader audience oflife scientists seeking an authoritative overview of fundamental principles.
