Tác giả khác: Graham Rowe
*Tóm tắt : Ecology--the study of how individuals and species interact with their surroundings, and each other -- has been revolutionized by a new molecular approach to the subject. By using molecular, biological and molecular genetic techniques, ecological interactions can be investigated in more detail and with more accuracy than ever before. An Introduction to Molecular Ecology makes this fascinating area of research accessible to students for the first time. Beginning with the history of molecular ecology, involving the relationships between natural history, genetics and evolution, the book moves on to discuss the areas of molecular population genetics, phylogeography, and molecular ecology in conservation biology. These are just a few of the ten chapters, which are individually structured to include background information, questions of interest, the underlying theory of the various molecular and analytical approaches, and a range of relevant examples. Two substantial appendices detail accounts of the main practical and analytical methods currently used in molecular ecology .

Nhan đề: Introduction to bioinformatics / Arthur M. Lesk. Số phân loại : 572.80285 A109; Đặc điểm vật lý: xxii, 474Tr (some col.) ; 25 cm
*Tóm tắt : Introduction to Bioinformatics by Arthur Lesk is a timely and much-needed textbook which provides an accessible and thorough introduction to a subject which is becoming a fundamental part of biological science today. As a pioneer of the use of bioinformatics techniques in research, Dr Lesk brings unrivalled experience and expertise to the study of this field. The aim of the book is to generate an understanding of the biological background of bioinformatics, and to integrate this with an introduction to the use of computational skills. Without describing computer science or sophisticated programming skills in detail, the book supports and encourages the application of the many powerful computational tools of bioinformatics in a way that is both relevant to and stimulating for the reader. .

Nhan đề: Ancestral sequence reconstruction / David A. Liberles Số phân loại : 572.838 D111; Đặc điểm vật lý: xiii, 252 p. : ill. ; 26 cm
*Tóm tắt : Ancestral sequence reconstruction is a technique of growing importance in molecular biology and comparative genomics. As a powerful technique for both testing evolutionary and ecological hypotheses as well as uncovering the link between sequence and molecular phenotype, there are potential applications in a number of fields. Beginning with a historical overview of the field including apllications, the discussion then moves into potential applications in drug discovery and the pharmaceutical industry. A section on computational methodology provides a detailed discussion on available methods for reconstructing ancestral sequences, including advantages,disadvantages, and potential pitfalls. Purely computational applications, including whole proteome reconstruction are discussed. Another section provides a detailed discussion on taking computationally reconstructed sequences and synthesizing them in the laboratory, while the last section describes scientific questions where experimental ancestral sequence reconstruction coupled to a computaional and experimental how-to guide, while simultaneously addressing some of the hot topics in the field .

Nhan đề: Introduction to genomics / Arthur M. Lesk Số phân loại : 572.86 L622; Đặc điểm vật lý: xx, 419Tr : Minh họa ; 25 cm
*Tóm tắt : Introduction to Genomics is a fascinating insight into what can be revealed from the study of genomics: how organisms differ or match; how different organisms evolved; how the genome is constructed and how it operates; and what our understanding of genomics means in terms of our future health and wellbeing .

Nhan đề: Microsatellites : evolution and applications / edited by David B. Goldstein and Christian Schlatterer Số phân loại : 572.86 D111; Đặc điểm vật lý: xv, 352 p. : ill. ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : Microsatellites are short stretches of repeated DNA that show exceptional variability in humans and most other species. This variability has made microsatellites the genetic marker of choice for numerous applications, including genetic mapping and studies of evolutionary connections between species and populations. This book details the molecular processes which give rise to microsatellite DNA and then describes the wide range of applications in medical genetics, forensics, the study of human evolution, and conservation genetics. Drawing from an international group of researchers, the book presents the theoretical background and the hands-on details for many of the popular analytic methods using microsatellites, including methods for estimating coalescent times, population divergences, and migration .

Nhan đề: Post-genome informatics / Minoru Kanehisa Số phân loại : 572.860285 M666; Đặc điểm vật lý: 148Tr : Minh họa ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : The genome projects have now entered a rapid production phase with complete genome sequences and complete gene catalogues already available for a number of organisms and an increasing number expected shortly. In addition the new DNA and protein chip technologies can produce functional data about genes such as gene expression profiles at a rapid rate. There is therefore a large and ever increasing amount of data about genes and molecules... .
