Pathology and Genetics: Tumours of Haematopoietic and Lymphoid Tissues (World Health Organization Classification of Tumours)


By (author): Elaine Sarkin Jaffe

“Pathology and Genetics of Tumours of the Haematopoietic and Lymphoid System” is the third volume in the WHO series on histological and genetic typing of human tumours. This authoritative, concise reference book provides an international standard for pathologists and oncologists and will serve as an indispensable guide for use in the design of studies monitoring response to therapy and clinical outcome.

The volume covers chronic myeloproliferative diseases, myeloplastic / myeloproliferative diseases, myelodisplastic syndromes, acute myeloid leukaemia, precursor B- and T-cell neoplasms, mature B-cell, T-cell and NK-cell neoplasms, Hodgkin lymphoma, immunodeficiency-associated lymphoproliferative disorders, histiocytic and dendritic cell neoplasms, and mastocytosis. Diagnostic criteria, pathological features, associated genetic altertions and gene expression patterns are described in a strictly disease-oriented manner. Sections on all recognized neoplasms and their variants include new ICD-O codes, incidence, age and sex distribution, location, clinical signs and symptoms, pathology, genetics, and predictive factors.

GMO Sapiens: The Life-Changing Science of Designer Babies


By (author): Paul Knoepfler

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) including plants and foods are a hot topic of debate today, but soon related technology could go much further and literally change what it means to be human. Scientists are on the verge of being able to create people who are GMOs.
Should they do it? Could we become a healthier and ‘better’ species or might eugenics go viral leading to a real, new world of genetic dystopia? GMO Sapiens tackles such questions by taking a fresh look at the cutting-edge biotech discoveries that have made genetically modified people possible.
Bioengineering, genomics, synthetic biology, and stem cells are changing sci-fi into reality before our eyes. This book will capture your imagination with its clear, approachable writing style. It will draw you into the fascinating discussion of the life-changing science of human genetic modification.
Readership: Undergraduate biology majors, graduate biology majors, non-experts interested in GMOs, biologists and teenagers interested in cloning and human genetic modification.

Genes, Chromosomes, and Disease: From Simple Traits to Complex Traits to Personalized Medicine


By (author): Nicholas Wright Gillham

This listenable overview covers the rise of medical genetics through the past century, and the eugenic impulses it has inspired. Nicholas Gillham reviews the linkages between genes and disease, ethnic groups’ differential susceptibility to genetic traits and disorders, personalized medicine, and crucial social and ethical issues arising from the field’s progress. Includes:

  • How genetic diseases arise and why some ethnic groups are more susceptible to specific disorders
  • How scientists are trying to identify the genetic factors underlying multifaceted conditions like diabetes and heart disease
  • The value and limitations of genetic information in prevention, treatment, and cure
  • The complex, subtle interrelationships between genes and cancer
  • What science knows – and doesn’t know – about genetics and human behavior
  • The fraught, controversial history of attempts to link genes with intelligence
  • Gene therapy: what’s worked and what hasn’t
  • The potential and profound implications of personalized medicine

Modified Nucleic Acids in Biology and Medicine (RNA Technologies)


This volume is comprised of 18 chapters, covering various aspects of DNA modification and RNA modified bases. It also discusses in detail circular RNA, therapeutic oligonucleotides and their different properties.

The chemical nature of DNA, RNA, protein and lipids makes these macromolecules easily modifiable, but they are also susceptible to damage from both endogenous and exogenous agents. Alkylation and oxidation show a potential to disrupt the cellular redox equilibrium and cause cellular damage leading to inflammation and even chronic disease. Furthermore, DNA damage can drive mutagenesis and the resulting DNA sequence changes can induce carcinogenesis and cancer progression.

Modified nucleosides can occur as a result of oxidative DNA damage and RNA turnover, and are used as markers for various diseases. To function properly some RNA needs to be chemically modified post-transcriptionally. Dysregulation of the RNA-modification pattern or of the levels of the enzymes that catalyze these modifications alters RNA functionality and can result in complex phenotypes, likely due to defects in protein translation. While modifications are best characterized in noncoding ribonucleic acids like tRNA and rRNA, coding mRNAs have also been found to contain modified nucleosides.

This book is a valuable resource, not only for graduate students but also researchers in the fields of molecular medicine and molecular biology.

Melanoma Development: Molecular Biology, Genetics and Clinical Application


The book provides comprehensive insights into molecular changes in malignant melanoma. The general mechanisms of melanoma growth and development are described, as well as new research findings. Our current knowledge on the molecules involved in cell transformation and tumor progression will soon lead to sophisticated, targeted therapies. Recent studies with targeted b-RAF inhibitors have given us grounds to hope that these therapies will be successful. Melanoma Development- Molecular Biology, Genetics and Clinical Application aims to contribute to this knowledge. Summarizing the newest data and presenting upcoming research areas in the field, the book will be of great interest to basic researchers and physicians working in the important fields of melanoma, cancer research, therapy and dermatology.

The Genetics of Type 2 Diabetes and Related Traits: Biology, Physiology and Translation


This book presents the state of the art of type 2 diabetes genetics, from the process of genetic discovery to its interpretation and clinical application, and illustrates a model for other complex human phenotypes.
The first section explores genome-wide association studies, the extension of this method to less accessible phenotypes and the arrival of next-generation sequencing. A further section goes beyond genetics to illustrate how other data sources can help interpret genetic data, such as leveraging population diversity, the correlation of genetic associations with physiological measurements, gene expression modulation, environmental factors and our microbial commensals. The third section describes advances in elucidating the complex path from association to function using in-depth sequencing and functional studies of the cellular and molecular effects of genes in the loci identified by genetics. The final section links our current understanding with clinically relevant questions, such as prediction, interactions with drugs or nutrients, and disease prevention, and paints a realistic but hopeful vision of the future.
