View: 273Molecular Pathology: The Molecular Basis of Human Disease provides a current and comprehensive view of the molecular basis and mechanisms of human disease. Combining accepted principles with broader theoretical concepts and with contributions from a group of experts, the book looks into disease processes in the context of traditional pathology and their implications for translational molecular medicine. It also discusses concepts in molecular biology and genetics, recent scientific and technological advances in modern pathology, the concept of ""molecular pathogenesis"" of disease, and how disease evolves from normal cells and tissues due to perturbations in molecular pathways. The book describes the integration of molecular and cellular pathogenesis using a bioinformatics approach and a systems biology approach to disease pathogenesis. It also discusses current and future strategies in molecular diagnosis of human disease, and the impact of molecular diagnosis on treatment decisions and the practice of personalized medicine. This book is a valuable resource for students, biomedical researchers, practicing physician-scientists who undertake disease-related basic science and translational research, and pathology residents and other postdoctoral fellows. * Exam Master® web site will host "Self-assessment" questions that students can use to study for the molecular section of the board exam * Companion Web Site – will host a complete set of PowerPoint slides: to include images from the book and additional images for teaching; course materials; lecture materials * Teaches from the perspective of “integrative systems biology, which encompasses the intersection of all molecular aspects of biology, as applied to understanding human disease * Outlines the principles and practice of molecular pathology * Explains the practice of “molecular medicine and the translational aspects of molecular pathology

View: 660Basic Genetics is a concise introductory textbook that focuses not only on understanding and explaining the main points of genetics, but also upon covering the required essential traditional subjects in the field. The main goal of this textbook is to help first year students who are taking their first course in human genetics to understand the different topics within genetics. It is of particular interest for those who are preparing themselves to study medicine or other medical sciences. This textbook presents only the essential required information. Some of the different subjects included in the eight chapters are: cell cycle and cellular division, Mendelian principles of heredity, the molecular basis of genetic material, gene expression and gene expression control, genetic variations and genetic engineering, as well as human genetics. In addition, Basic Genetics contains multiple choice questions covering each topic and their answers. These questions are absolutely essential for students' self- assessment. These different topics of basic genetics have also been illustrated by simple diagrams in full color.
However, all of the genes together are only a small part of DNA code. The 30,000 odd genes in human DNA might only make up 4% of human DNA. This book presents a view in depth of the principal aspects of life science.

View: 615Molecular Genetics is one of the fast moving fields of science that has undergone a variable revolution over the last two decades leading to major advances in the understanding of gene structure and function at molecular level. Human Molecular Genetics is the study of the molecular basis of human genetic disease, developmental genetics, neurogenetics, chromosome structure and function, molecular aspects of cancer genetics, gene therapy, biochemical genetics, major advances in gene mapping and understanding of genome organization. Genetics is the study of how genes bring about characteristics, or traits, in living things and how those characteristics are inherited. Genes are portions of DNA molecules that determine characteristics of living things. Through the processes of meiosis and reproduction, genes are transmitted from one generation to the next. Heredity is a biological process where a parent passes certain genes onto their children or offspring. Genetics uses information from one or two genes to explain a disease or condition, whereas genomics examines all of the genetic information to determine biological markers predisposing an individual to disease. Genes are the best understood subsequence of DNA code. Most genes clearly encode the data sequence representing a particular protein. However, all of the genes together are only a small part of DNA code. The 30,000 odd genes in human DNA might only make up 4% of human DNA. This book presents a view in depth of the principal aspects of life science. Each chapter treats a discrete topic within the scope of biology and each is designed for students who are exposed to the topics for the first time. Since considerable ferment exists in the biological sciences today, it is increasingly important to keep pace with current developments.
