The thread of life( Visual )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part of the Bell Science series made for television, this film dicusses the nature of living things. It traces the history of genetics and heredity; including Gregor Mendel, pioneer in the study of genetics, and Thomas Hunt Morgan, developer of the chromosome map. The film discusses mitosis and miosis, mutations, and DNA
Jim Crow's museum( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Jim Crow Museum of racist memorabilia is a 4000-piece collection of racist artifacts housed at Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Michigan. The museum uses items of intolerance to teach tolerance. Jim Crow's museum is a fast paced tour through the continuum of anti-black material items produced in the past and present. Often disturbing, this flow of images and commentary is designed to remind the audience of the causes and effects of racism

Population genetics, molecular evolution, and the neutral theory : selected papers by Motoo Kimura( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Motoo Kimura revolutionized evolutionary biology with his random drift theory of molecular evolution - the neutral theoryand his groundbreaking theoretical work in population genetics. This volume collects fifty-seven of Kimura's most important papers and covers forty years of his diverse and original contributions to our understanding of how genetic variation affects evolutionary change."--BOOK JACKET. "Kimura's neutral theory, first presented in 1968, challenged the notion that natural selection was the sole directive force in evolution. Arguing that mutations and random drift account for variations at the level of DNA and amino acids, Kimura advanced a theory of evolutionary change that was strongly challenged at first and that eventually earned the respect and interest of evolutionary biologists throughout the world. This volume includes the seminal papers on the neutral theory, as well as many others that cover such topics as population structure, variable selection intensity, the genetics of quantitative characters, inbreeding systems, and reversibility of changes by random drift."--BOOK JACKET. "Background essays by Naoyuki Takahata examine Kimura's work in relation to its effects and recent developments in each area. This book will stand as a valuable reference for students and professionals in evolutionary biology for years to come."--BOOK JACKET

Gene therapeutics : methods and applications of direct gene transfer by Jon A Wolff( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the first half century of genetics, coinciding with the first half of this cen tury, geneticists dreamt of the repair of genetic disease by altering or replacing defective genes. H.J. Muller wrote of the great advantages of mutations, "nanoneedles" in his apt term, for delicately probing physiological and chemical processes. In the same spirit, genes could be used to provide treatments of needle point delicacy. Yet, during this period no realistic possibility appeared; it remained but a dream. The situation changed abruptly at the half century. Microbial genetics and its offshoot, cell culture genetics, provided the route. Pneumococcus transformation showed that exogenous DNA could become a permanent part of the genome; yet attempts to reproduce this in animals produced a few tantalizing hints of success, but mostly failures. Transduction, using a virus as mediator, offered a better op portunity. The fITSt reproducible in vivo gene therapy in a whole animal came in 1981. This was in Drosophila, with a transposable element as carrier. Flies were "cured" of a mutant eye color by incorporation of the normal allele, and the effect was transmissible, foreshadowing not only somatic, but germ line gene therapy. At the same time, retroviruses carrying human genes were found to be ex tremely efficient in transferring their contents to the chromosomes of cultured cells
