The Third Edition of Molecular Biology: Genes to Proteins is a comprehensive guide through the basic molecular processes and genetic phenomena of both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Designed for undergraduate and first year graduate students, this multi-purpose text has been completely updated to include many important advances made in the field of molecular biology. Maintaining the original structure-function approach evident in the first two editions of David Freifelder's classic text, this book provides students with an accessible overview of molecular biology before moving into more in-depth discussions. Broken into six sections, topics are strategically arranged to cover basic information that is necessary in understanding the more advanced topics focused on in later sections. Section 1 and 2, Protein Structure and Function and Nucleic Acids and Nucleoproteins provide the information required to Understand The chemical basis of molecular biology. Section 3, Genetics and Virology provides information required to Understand The biological basis of molecular biology. Section 4, DNA Metabolism explores DNA replication, repair, and recombination in bacteria, eukaryotes and archaeons. Section 5, RNA Synthesis and Processing examines mechanisms that bacteria, eukaryotes, and archaeons use to synthesize RNA, regulate RNA syntheses, and process transcripts to form mature RNA molecules. Section 6, Protein Synthesis describes the structure and function of the bacterial protein synthetic machinery in bacteria, eukaryotes and archaeons.

Statistical Genetics of Quantitative Traits

Author: Rongling Wu
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9780387681542
Release Date: 2007-07-17
Genre: Science

This book introduces the basic concepts and methods that are useful in the statistical analysis and modeling of the DNA-based marker and phenotypic data that arise in agriculture, forestry, experimental biology, and other fields. It concentrates on the linkage analysis of markers, map construction and quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping, and assumes a background in regression analysis and maximum likelihood approaches. The strength of this book lies in the construction of general models and algorithms for linkage analysis, as well as in QTL mapping in any kind of crossed pedigrees initiated with inbred lines of crops.

How do we know what role a particular gene has? How do some genes control the expression of others? How do genes interact to form gene networks? With its unique integration of genetics and molecular biology, Genetic Analysis probes fascinating questions such as these, detailing how our understanding of key genetic phenomena can be used to understand biological systems. Opening with a brief overview of key genetic principles, model organisms, and epigenetics, the book goes on to explorethe use of gene mutations and the analysis of gene expression and activity. A discussion of the genetic structure of natural populations follows, before the interaction of genes during suppression and epistasis, how we study gene networks, and personalized genomics are considered. Drawing on the latest experimental tools, including microarrays, RNAi screens, and bioinformatics approaches, Genetic Analysis provides a state-of-the-art review of the field, but in a truly student-friendly manner. It uses extended case studies and text boxes to augment the narrative, taking the reader right to the forefront of contemporary research, without losing clarity of explanation and insight. We are in an age where, despite knowing so much about biological systems, we are just beginning to realise how much more there is still to understand. Genetic Analysis is the ideal guide to how we can use the awesome power of molecular genetics to further our understanding.

Meta analysis and Combining Information in Genetics and Genomics

Author: Rudy Guerra
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 142001062X
Release Date: 2016-04-19
Genre: Mathematics

Novel Techniques for Analyzing and Combining Data from Modern Biological Studies Broadens the Traditional Definition of Meta-Analysis With the diversity of data and meta-data now available, there is increased interest in analyzing multiple studies beyond statistical approaches of formal meta-analysis. Covering an extensive range of quantitative information combination methods, Meta-analysis and Combining Information in Genetics and Genomics looks at how to analyze multiple studies from a broad perspective. After presenting the basic ideas and tools of meta-analysis, the book addresses the combination of similar data types: genotype data from genome-wide linkage scans and data derived from microarray gene expression experiments. The expert contributors show how some data combination problems can arise even within the same basic framework and offer solutions to these problems. They also discuss the combined analysis of different data types, giving readers an opportunity to see data combination approaches in action across a wide variety of genome-scale investigations. As heterogeneous data sets become more common, biological understanding will be significantly aided by jointly analyzing such data using fundamentally sound statistical methodology. This book provides many novel techniques for analyzing data from modern biological studies that involve multiple data sets, either of the same type or multiple data sources.
