Textbooks of general genetics rarely mention horses. Horse breeders and those taking courses in equine studies do not find it easy to relate fruit flies, pea plants and mice to practical horse breeding. There is therefore a need for a book which provides an overview of genetic principles using horses as the primary examples. This book aims to fill this gap. The author, who has both practical and academic experience in this subject, has distilled facts and ideas to provide relevant examples in a jargon-free way, while still maintaining scientific rigor. Our knowledge of horse genes lags well behind that of other domestic animals, and the number of well-understood examples is limited. The author thus concentrates on topics such as coat color, where information is well documented, to illustrate general genetic principles. Nevertheless, the book is comprehensive in scope, covering additional topics such as parentage testing, medical genetics and gene mapping. Overall, the book is unique in providing an up-to-date review of current knowledge of horse genetics. It will be invaluable for students of equine studies, animal breeding and veterinary science, as well as for horse breeders, professionals and enthusiastic amateurs working with horses.

This publication provides an update on the current status of gene maps in different livestock and pet/companion animal species. The findings summarized in species specific commentaries and original articles testify the rapid advances made in the field of animal genomics. Of significant interest is the fact that current investigations are providing headways for two important and exciting research fronts: targeted high-resolution mapping leading to the application of genomic information in addressing questions of economic and biological significance in animals, and the initiation of whole genome sequencing projects for some of the animal species. Like in humans and mice, this will set the stage for a new level of research and real time complex analysis of the genomes of these species. Animal Genomics signifies the beginning of a new era in this field and celebrates the achievements of the past 20 years of genomics research. It will be of special interest to researchers involved in genome analysis - both gross chromosomal as well as molecular - in various animal species, and to comparative and evolutionary geneticists.

Epigenetics upends natural selection and genetic mutation as the sole engines of evolution, and offers startling insights into our future heritable traits. In the 1700s, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck first described epigenetics to explain the inheritance of acquired characteristics; however, his theory was supplanted in the 1800s by Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection through heritable genetic mutations. But natural selection could not adequately explain how rapidly species re-diversified and repopulated after mass extinctions. Now advances in the study of DNA and RNA have resurrected epigenetics, which can create radical physical and physiological changes in subsequent generations by the simple addition of a single small molecule, thus passing along a propensity for molecules to attach in the same places in the next generation! Epigenetics is a complex process, but paleontologist and astrobiologist Peter Ward breaks it down for general readers, using the epigenetic paradigm to reexamine how the history of our species--from deep time to the outbreak of the Black Plague and into the present--has left its mark on our physiology, behavior, and intelligence. Most alarming are chapters about epigenetic changes we are undergoing now triggered by toxins, environmental pollutants, famine, poor nutrition, and overexposure to violence. Lamarck's Revenge is an eye-opening and controversial exploration of how traits are inherited, and how outside influences drive what we pass along to our progeny.
