Reproductive Medicine: Molecular, Cellular and Genetic Fundamentals, Second Edition
by Bart C. J. M. Fauser (Editor), Aaron J. W. Hsueh, Philippe Bouchard

In this text on reproductive medicine, 36 contributions discuss molecular and cell biology; hormone synthesis action and signal transduction; molecular pharmacology; gamete and embryo biology; principles of medical genetics; and reproductive dysfunction. Contains some b&w and color images and charts. Edited by Fauser (Center of Reproductive Medicine, Eramus Medical Center), and section editors from leading medical institutions and universities.


DNA: The Secret of Life

by James D. Watson, Andrew Berry (Contributor)

What makes DNA different from hordes of competitors purporting to help readers understand genetics is that it is written by none other than James Watson, of Watson and Crick fame. He and his co-author Andrew Berry have produced a clear and easygoing history of genetics, from Mendel through genome sequencing. Watson offers readers a sense of immediacy, a behind-the scenes familiarity with some of the most exciting developments in modern science. He gleefully reports on the research juggernaut that led to current obsessions with genetic engineering and cloning. Aided by profuse illustrations and photos, Watson offers an enthusiastic account of how scientists figured out how DNA codes for the creation of proteins - the so-called "central dogma" of genetics. But as patents and corporations enter the picture, Watson reveals his concern about the incursions of business into the hallowed halls of science.
After 1975, DNA was no longer solely the concern of academics trying to understand the molecular underpinnings of life. The molecule moved beyond the cloisters of white-coated scientists into a very different world populated largely by men in silk ties and sharp suits.
In later chapters, Watson aims barbs at those who are concerned by genetic tinkering, calling them "alarmists" who don't understand how the experiments work. It is in these arguments that Watson may lose favor with those whose notions of science were born after Silent Spring. Nevertheless, DNA encompasses both sides of the political issues involved in genetics, and Watson is an enthusiastic proponent of debate on the subject. The book accompanies a 5-part PBS series. - Therese Littleton

Molecular Biology of the Gene (4th Edition)

by James D. Watson (Author)

With the participation of four new co-authors, Molecular Biology of the Gene has been thoroughly updated and expanded to give comprehensive and authoritative coverage of this fast-moving field, while retaining the lively, incisive writing style for which earlier editions were famous.

Microarray Gene Expression Data Analysis: A Beginner's Guide
