Großartig, fesselnd und folgenreich: Pulitzer-Preisträger Siddhartha Mukherjee erzählt meisterhaft die Geschichte der Entzifferung des Mastercodes, der unser Menschsein bestimmt. Als Siddhartha Mukherjee seinen Bestseller ›Der König aller Krankheiten‹ beendet hatte, machte er sich auf eine Reise in die indische Heimat. Er besucht Cousin Moni, der an Schizophrenie leidet – wie auffällig viele seiner Verwandten. Fasziniert beginnt Mukherjee sich mit der Geschichte der Gene zu beschäftigen: Von den Erbsenkreuzungen Mendels bis zur neuesten Gen-Bearbeitungs-Methode CRISPR schreibt Mukherjee den spannenden Roman einer wissenschaftlichen Suche und verwebt ihn mit der Geschichte seiner Familie. Das große Buch eines begnadeten Erzählers und Arztes, das gewaltige Panorama einer machtvollen Entdeckung, die man nun endlich versteht. Packend und einzigartig. »Wer wissen will, was es bedeutet, Mensch zu sein, sollte dieses Buch lesen.« Boston Globe »Lesen Sie dieses Buch, so werden Sie auf die Zukunft bestens vorbereitet sein. « Sunday Times »Meisterhaft aufgebaut, wunderbar erzählt [...] Mukherjee ist ein Genie darin, zutiefst menschliche Geschichten hinter abstrakten Ideen zu entdecken.« Andrew Solomon, Washington Post »Eine inspirierende und ungemein bewegende Lektüre.« San Francisco Chronicle

Der Klassiker unter den Biochemie-Lehrbüchern – seit Jahrzehnten international bewährt, von Lehrenden und Lernenden hoch geschätzt und jetzt wieder auf dem neuesten Stand Diese vollständig überarbeitete Neuauflage weist all die innovativen konzeptionell-didaktischen und herausragenden gestalterischen Eigenschaften auf, die schon die früheren Auflagen zu Bestsellern gemacht haben – die außerordentlich klare und präzise Art der Darstellung, die Aktualität, die ausgefeilte Didaktik, die Verständlichkeit. In gewohnt verständlicher Form greift das Buch auch jüngste Fortschritte auf dem Gebiet der Biochemie auf. Es veranschaulicht den „Kern“ der Biochemie – die Schlüsselkonzepte und Grundprinzipien –, schlägt Brücken zwischen verschiedenen Befunden und Untersuchungsansätzen und offenbart damit letztlich sowohl die molekulare Logik des Lebendigen als auch die Bedeutung der Biochemie für die Medizin. Studierende und Lehrende werden unter anderem folgende Neuerungen und Verbesserungen in der 7. Auflage zu schätzen wissen: - erweiterte Darstellung der Genregulation bei Prokaryoten (Kapitel 31) und Eukaryoten (Kapitel 32) mit zahlreichen neuen Abschnitten, etwa zum quorum sensing, zur Induktion pluripotenter Stammzellen und zur Funktion der Mikro-RNAs - Integration neuer Forschungsergebnisse zum Zusammenhang zwischen Stoffwechsel, Ernährung und Fettleibigkeit sowie zur Bedeutung der Leptine - Berücksichtigung zahlreicher wissenschaftlicher Fortschritte zu DNA-Sequenzierung, Myosin, Glykomik, Vogelgrippe, Endocytose, Cholesterin, Helikasen,, Riboswitches u. v. m. - erweiterte Darstellung wichtiger Labormethoden - neue Beispiele für medizinische Zusammenhänge und klinische Anwendungen - deutlich mehr Übungsaufgaben an den Kapitelenden - zusätzliche Informationen, Materialien und Lernhilfen, etwa interaktive Molekülmodelle und Animationen, im Internet (englischsprachig) - die Abbildungen des Buches in elektronischer Form für den Einsatz in der Lehre

From Gene to Protein: Translation into Biotechnology is the 15th volume in the continuing series under the title ""Miami Winter Symposia"". The theme of the symposium is the translation of the basic research findings into the practical application of biotechnology. This book summarizes methodology and its applications that lie behind the practical innovations. The book starts with reviews of techniques of eukaryotic cell culture, hybridoma technology and uses, and the in vitro synthesis of DNA and its use in the generation of protein analogs. Considerable space is devoted to development of monoclonal antibodies that promises to be the dominating tool of medical technology, both for diagnosis and therapy. Cloning into eukaryotic cells and methods of increasing the levels of gene expression are included. These topics reflect areas of intensive research that have important commercial and clinical value. Core chapters describe biological activities of cloned gene products, including reports on trials with human subjects of interferon, human insulin, and growth hormone. A panel session on horizons in biotechnology is also provided, looking forward to the directions of future research and its applications. Biotechnologists, cell biologists, scientists, researchers, teachers, and students will greatly benefit from this book.
