BOOK EXCERPT:

The promise and peril of having children in an age of genetic tests and interventions. This book is a summary of “The Gene Machine: How Genetic Technologies Are Changing the Way We Have Kids — and the Kids We Have,” by Bonnie Rochman. This book covers a variety of topics from breast cancer to Tay-Sachs, several pre-natal genetic mapping technologies, genome sequencing, rare disease diagnosis, silencing of a gene, and repairing gene defects using gene editing tools (CRISPR). It covers the question of testing for Down syndrome and abortion, and the emotionally and morally fraught decisions individuals are forced to make when confronting the information these tests reveal. In the past few years, genetic testing has expanded into a full array of testing available prenatally, postnatally, and even pre-conception. A more targeted analysis has allowed women to weed out unhealthy embryos before attempting pregnancy. Genome sequencing gives the child’s blueprint, including a predisposition to diseases such as Down syndrome, early-onset Alzheimer’s, or breast cancer. Having access to so much information can be empowering, enlightening, confusing, and frightening. It can enable parents to prepare for a child with special needs. Or it could allow them to end the pregnancy. This is a must read for those planning on having kids, or for those who simply want to learn about genetic technologies. This guide includes: * Book Summary—helps you understand the key concepts. * Online Videos—cover the concepts in more depth. Value-added from this guide: * Save time * Understand key concepts * Expand your knowledge

BOOK EXCERPT:

The use of molecular biology and biochemistry to study the regulation of gene expression has become a major feature of research in the biological sciences. Many excellent books and reviews exist that examine the experimental methodology employed in specific areas of molecular biology and regulation of gene expression. However, we have noticed a lack of books, especially textbooks, that provide an overview of the rationale and general experimental approaches used to examine chemically or disease-mediated alterations in gene expression in mammalian systems. For example, it has been difficult to find appropriate texts that examine specific experimental goals, such as proving that an increased level of mRNA for a given gene is attributable to an increase in transcription rates. Regulation of Gene Expression: Molecular Mechanisms is intended to serve as either a textbook for graduate students or as a basic reference for laboratory personnel. Indeed, we are using this book to teach a graduate-level class at The Pennsylvania State University. For more details about this class, please visit http://moltox. cas. psu. edu and select “Courses. ” The goal for our work is to provide an overview of the various methods and approaches to characterize possible mechanisms of gene regulation. Further, we have attempted to provide a framework for students to develop an understanding of how to determine the various mechanisms that lead to altered activity of a specific protein within a cell.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This volume is the third in a series developed under the auspices of the World Federation of Neurology to meet the needs of neurologists who must practice medicine without many of the advantages that are often taken for granted in the industrialized world. It is targeted to neurologists practicing in low-resource environments and those who wish to practice cost-effective neurology, and addresses issues important for neurologists in developing countries that are not covered in standard textbooks. The series will update the reader in currently accepted diagnostic and management practice. Material is presented in a user-friendly, interactive manner, with abundant case material. Dystonia is the third most common movement disorder after Parkinson's disease and Tremor. It is a neurologic disorder characterized by involuntary, sustained, patterned and often repetitive muscle contractions of opposing muscles that force parts of the body into abnormal and sometimes painful postures. Dystonia can affect any part of the body and while not fatal, it is a chronic and debilitating disorder. Managing dystonic conditions can be difficult in developing countries where there are limited diagnostic and therapeutic resources. The use of botulinum toxin, considered the treatment of choice for many focal or segmental dystonias, is discussed in regard to its cost effectiveness in the setting of limited resources. Dystonia provides a practical review of the disorder that emphasizes cost-effective evaluation and treatment and advice on how to apply the current knowledge in clinical practice. This text will be a welcome edition to the international literature on the subject.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Molecular Approaches to Gene Expression and Protein Structure documents the proceedings of the international symposium ""Gene and Protein Structure"" held in conjunction with the 22nd annual meeting of the Chilean Society of Biology at the campus of the Universidad Austral de Chile in Valdivia, Chile, December 1979. Organized by the Chilean Society of Biology, the symposium was designed not only to explore the concepts involved in the evolution of genes and protein structure but to bring together scientists from the United States and their counterparts from the Chilean academic institutions. The subject matter presented in this book reflects the research interests and experiences of the participating authors. The emphasis, in general, is on molecular and regulatory processes and cellular control mechanisms. The chapters include reviews on selected areas of interest written in a manner intelligible to newcomers to biological research, and present an in-depth analysis of the work with a balanced presentation of facts, concepts, and projections.

BOOK EXCERPT:

There is a growing awareness of a worldwide reduction in biodiversity and the urgent need to develop ways to redress the problem. This is the first major book devoted to the subject of genetic resource banking (GRB) and its role in preserving global animal biodiversity. In Cryobanking the Genetic Resource, expert contributors provide the non-specialist with an overview of the subject and the practical techniques associated with GRB. The book presents a basic introduction to the concepts, and then points the way to relevant literature for those who wish to develop practical applications. The first section deals with the potential contribution of GRB to biodiversity protection, while the second section offers an introduction to the basic cryobiology of gametes and embryos. In the first section, genetic considerations for planning interventions are discussed, together with disease control measures. This section explores related reproductive technologies necessary for the use of cryopreserved gametes and embryos, as well as a range of other issues such as ownership and security of stored material, and the size and location of cryopreserved material. The second section offers a thorough review of the literature on cryopreservation of spermatozoa, oocytes, and embryos. It gathers species into related groups for ease of reference, and does not assume extensive specialist knowledge so that newcomers to the field can make the best use of the available research. This book is an essential resource for zoologists and conservationists with an interest in genetic management and captive breeding, and also for students involved in biodiversity issues, conservation, and assisted reproduction.
