In the comparatively short time since 1953 there have been ground-breaking discoveries that have changed the way we look at ourselves, and have been instrumental in addressing many of the problems... More > associated with ‘genetic diseases’ in general. A new vocabulary has evolved in the light of these discoveries. Intron, exon, prion, hox, codon, polymerase, epistasis, gyandromorph, telomere, Morgellon’s, BRCA and many others have crept into the vocabulary and are being used more and more. The study of Genetics can be very daunting for a student embarking on the adventure for the very first time. This book is intended, initially, to cover much of the syllabus for A-Level and High School studies, but because of the simple language, tables and graphics, however, the subject matter will be easily absorbed by, and be of great interest to, the comparative lay persons among us.< Less

This is a STEDT Facsimile Edition of James A. Matisoff's pioneering 1978 book Variational Semantics in Tibeto-Burman: The "organic" approach to linguistic comparison. This volume explores... More > strategies for sub-grouping Tibeto-Burman (TB) languages, addressing phonological, morphological, and morphophonemic criteria for determining genetic relations. Matisoff here defines many of the key concepts underlying his influential linguistic theories and findings, including "semantic fields", "semantic systems", and "multi-dimensional semantic space", looking in particular at TB body-part terms, and charting the complex semantic relations among TB internal organs.< Less
Genetic Factors of Anxiety, Anger, and Mental Disorders: Potential Biomarkers for Diagnosis and Prevention By Pharm Tao
eBook (ePub): $3.99
(1 Ratings)
Scientific evidences have shown that together with environmental factors, genetic components have important roles in anxiety and various mental problems. Many genes have been related to psychiatric... More > disorders including depression, panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive behavior, schizophrenia, and emotional disorders. Variations in the genes may increase the individual risks for psychiatric diseases such as bipolar disorders, memory impairment, psychosis in Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and alcoholism. It is very challenging to have early and accurate diagnosis of anxiety disorders to save the costs from delayed treatments. In addition, anger and hostility may be psychosocial risk factors for higher cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Potential biomarkers for the diagnosis of anxiety can be genes, genetic variants, biochemical and physiological components, as well as behavioral factors.< Less
Natural Products, Chemical Compounds, and Gene Targets for Weight Loss: Discoveries from Genetic Interactions By (Editor)
eBook (PDF): $1.99
(1 Ratings)
Body weight is decided by the balance between food intake and energy expenditure. Some genes have been found to be important signal molecules in the cells and play crucial roles in the central... More > regulation of food intake, feeding behavior, and energy homeostasis. These genes are potential targets and biomarkers for the treatment of obesity and associated diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Many natural products, such as extracts and compounds from fruits and herbs, have weight loss effects and can protect against high-fat-diet induced obesity. These natural products and compounds can be used in food ingredients, diet therapy, or drug components for the treatment of obesity. Recent scientific studies have elucidated the molecular mechanisms of these products. The weight loss effects of these products may be mediated through adjusting genes involved in energy homeostasis.

The conflict between how much athletic ability is rooted in individual genetics as opposed to the influence of training and other factors is often expressed as "nature versus nurture."... More > Although precise attribution between athletic nature and nurture are impossible, it is a generally accepted sport science proposition that genes represent approximately 50% of athletic variation in performance, with 50% attributable to both the individual athlete's response to training, as well as social factors, such as the support provided to the athlete in pursuit of his or her goals.< Less
