By Stephen J. O'Brien (Editor), Joan C. Menninger (Editor), William G. Nash (Editor)

A beautiful visible choice of the banded metaphase chromosome karyotypes from a few 850 species of mammals, the Atlas of Mammalian Chromosomes represents an unabridged compendium of the nation of this genomic artwork shape. Bringing jointly info presently scattered through the cytogenetics literature for rankings of released and unpublished species, this atlas positive aspects fine quality karyotype photographs for almost each mammal studied thus far, making it the main accomplished assemblage of high-resolution chromosome pictures available--a severely beneficial source for modern-day comparative genomics era.For each on hand species, the Atlas of Mammalian Chromosomes provides the simplest karyotype produced, the typical and Latin identify of the species, the printed quotation, and the contributing authors. such a lot karyotypes are G-banded, revealing the chromosomal bar codes of homologous segments between comparable species.Addressing the mandate of the Human Genome undertaking to annotate the genomes of different organisms besides, the Atlas of Mammalian Chromosomes bargains a breakthrough in our knowing of species formation, of genome association, and of DNA script for usual choice. it truly is a useful source for geneticists, mammalogists, and biologists drawn to comparative genomics, systematics, and chromosome constitution.

Download Modulation of Host Gene Expression and Innate Immunity by by Peter Palese (Editor), Jean-Pierre Changeux (Editor) PDF

By Peter Palese (Editor), Jean-Pierre Changeux (Editor)

This e-book is a wonderful, up to date reference on a comparatively younger region of analysis during which virology, mobile biology and molecular pathogenesis govern the rules of coinvestigation. hence, the booklet could be of significant curiosity to virologists, molecular immunologists and biologists, and biochemists but additionally to scientific pharmacologists within the long term look for new antiviral brokers. Ulrich Desselberger, Gif-sur-Yvette/Cambridge. an infection of a na?ve (non-immune) host with a scourge elicits a right away reaction which leads to a cascade of alterations within the host, together with an interferon reaction (innate immunity). the end result of this interplay is encouraged by means of the genes of the virus in addition to the genes of the host. curiously, assorted viruses do it in several methods. not just is there a plethora of mechanisms utilized by the invading organisms, however the host has additionally developed a good number of redundant and powerful countermeasures. This interaction of host and virus represents probably the most major frontiers in biology this present day. A clearer realizing of the mechanisms concerned will arm us with higher suggestions to accommodate viruses, together with rising pathogens and power bioterrorism brokers. This booklet is bound to learn scholars, scientists, and physicians operating within the parts of virology, immunology, microbiology, and infectious illnesses. Pharmaceutical execs also will locate curiosity during this illuminating look at virus/host interactions.
