Genetics today is inexorably focused on DNA. The theme of Introduction to Genetics: A Molecular Approach is therefore the progression from molecules (DNA and genes) to processes (gene expression and DNA replication) to systems (cells, organisms and populations). This progression reflects both the basic logic of life and the way in which modern biological research is structured. The molecular approach is particularly suitable for the large number of students for whom genetics is a part of a broader program in biology, biochemistry, the biomedical sciences, and biotechnology. Introduction to Genetics presents the basic facts and concepts with enough depth of knowledge to stimulate students to move on to more advanced aspects of the subject. The book is divided into three parts. Part 1 examines the function of the gene as a unit of biological information. Part 2 studies the role of the gene as a unit of inheritance. And Part 3 explores some of the areas of research that are responsible for the high profile that genetics has in our modern world, from agriculture and industry to medicine and forensics, and the ethical challenges that genetic knowledge imparts.

p”Ein auch heute noch bedeutsamer Klassiker“ Daily Express Sind wir Marionetten unserer Gene? Nach Richard Dawkins ́ vor über 30 Jahren entworfener und heute noch immer provozierender These steuern und dirigieren unsere von Generation zu Generation weitergegebenen Gene uns, um sich selbst zu erhalten. Alle biologischen Organismen dienen somit vor allem dem Überleben und der Unsterblichkeit der Erbanlagen und sind letztlich nur die "Einweg-Behälter" der "egoistischen" Gene. Sind wir Menschen also unserem Gen-Schicksal hilflos ausgeliefert? Dawkins bestreitet dies und macht uns Hoffnung: Seiner Meinung nach sind wir nämlich die einzige Spezies mit der Chance, gegen ihr genetisches Schicksal anzukämpfen.

"We must teach students the conceptual and technical approachesused to solve problems in biology. This book will do thissuperbly." - Professor Steve Oliver, School of Biological Sciences,University of Manchester, UK Molecular genetic analysis is the fusion of biochemical and geneticapproaches to investigate the underlying mechanisms of cellularprocesses. These techniques have been developed over the pastdecades by researchers working with model organisms such asbacteriophage, E. coli, Saccharomyces, Drosophila, maize, and morerecently, Arabidopsis and C. elegans. The details of cultivationand crossing of each organism differ, but the theory behindmolecular genetic analysis is the same for all of theseorganisms. Genetic Techniques for Biological Research teaches the methods ofmolecular genetic analysis using a case study approach with theyeast Saccharomyces as the model genetic organism. The toolsavailable for Saccharomyces are the most highly developed, and yetalso most straightforward, of all of the eukaryotic researchorganisms. Furthermore, the theoretical basis of the methods ofmolecular genetic analysis learned using yeast are directlyapplicable to other organisms. The aim is that the reader will develop an appreciation for themolecular genetic method of analysis, and will be able to translatethe critical thinking skills illustrated by the case studies to thereader's own research projects and scientific decisionmaking. Features include: * theoretical overviews of the methods and tools of moleculargenetic analysis * the application of these techniques to published researcharticles * case studies with questions to enable students to developcritical thinking skills Genetic Techniques for Biological Research teaches the theory andpractice of molecular genetic analysis to advanced undergraduatesand graduates studying genetics, genomics, molecular biology andcell biology and is a valuable addition to the reference library ofany research laboratory.

Since the mid-1950's, primary immunodeficiency disorders have been studied intensively as "experiments of nature" to better understand how the immune system works. The recent progress in immunology, genetics, and molecular biology has introduced a new dimension in our understanding of these diseases: scientists and clinicians can now precisely identify many inherited defects on the molecular level and perform mutation analysis, confirm the diagnosis, screen for carriers, and begin to work on gene therapy. This book reviews our present understanding of immunology, genetics, and molecular biology and focuses on each of the genetically determined primary immunodeficiency disorders. It contains chapters that deal with clinical and pathological issues, and chapters discussing how to establish the diagnosis of primary immunodeficiency diseases and how to treat them. Leading contributors are drawn from an international group of experts who are all leaders in the field, and each syndrome is addressed from both molecular and clinical points of view to bridge the gap between basic and clinical science.

Many common human diseases have a multifactorial origin: they are influenced by a person's genetic predisposition as well as by factors in the environment. This volume deals with the application of recombinant DNA techniques to the identification of diseases that have more than one inherited component. Focus is on the polygenic factors responsible for coronary atherosclerosis. Several other disorders having a polygenic origin are also discussed, including hypertension, diabetes mellitus, psychiatric diseases, and autoimmune (HLA-related) disorders. Problems raised by the study of different families or different populations are covered, as well as the possibility of applying molecular techniques to disease prevention--for example, through gene therapy. Also, some of the ethical issues that relate to human gene mapping are briefly explored.
