NutriGenomics - Personlized Medicine By Vasu. K Brown, MD
Paperback: $19.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
We are at the dawn of a new age of personalized medicine. Just as Moore’s law transformed computing so, too, will the interpretation of the human genome transform medicine. We are moving from... More > the inefficient and experimental medicine of today towards the data-driven medicine of tomorrow. Soon, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and most importantly, prevention will be tailored to individuals’ genetic and phenotypic information. It appears that nutrients and bioactive food components can influence epigenetic phenomena either by directly inhibiting enzymes that catalyze DNA methylation or histone modifications, or by altering the availability of substrates necessary for those enzymatic reactions. In this regard, nutritional epigenetics has been viewed as an attractive tool to prevent pediatric developmental diseases and cancer as well as to delay aging-associated processes. This book is meant as a guide for Health Care Professionals to implement Genetic SNP testing in their practice.< Less
NutriGenomics - Personalized Medicine By Vasu. K Brown, MD
eBook (PDF): $14.99
The personalized medicine revolution is almost here - We are at the dawn of a new age of personalized medicine. Just as Moore’s law transformed computing – and, as a result, all aspects... More > of our professional and personal lives — so, too, will the interpretation of the human genome transform medicine. We are moving from the inefficient and experimental medicine of today towards the data-driven medicine of tomorrow. Soon, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and most importantly, prevention will be tailored to individuals’ genetic and phenotypic information. The nutrients we extract from food enter metabolic pathways where they are manipulated, modified and molded into molecules the body can use. One such pathway is responsible for making methyl groups - important epigenetic tags that silence genes. Familiar nutrients like folic acid, B vitamins and SAM-e (S-Adenosyl methionine, a popular over-the-counter supplement) are key components of this methyl-making pathway.< Less
Biotechnology Principles & Processes “Good Lab Practice” By Professor Ali H Altimimi
eBook (PDF): $299.99
With the advent of PCR, chemical DNA synthesis, DNA sequencing, monoclonal antibodies, directed mutagenesis, genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics, our understanding of and ability to manipulate the... More > biological world have grown exponentially. When the applications of recombinant DNA was published in 1994, nearly all of the transgenic organisms that were produced included only a single introduced gene. Just 25 years later, it is not uncommon for researchers to engineer organisms by modifying both the activity and the regulation of existing genes while at the same time introducing entire new pathways. Today, advanced biotechnology has given us several hundred new therapeutic agents, with many more in the pipeline, as well as dozens of transgenic plants. The use of DNA has become a cornerstone of modern forensics, paternity testing, and ancestry determination. Several new recombinant vaccines have been developed, with many more on the horizon.< Less
