Cracking the code of life( Visual )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 1,078 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary examines the complex race to decode the human genome. Examines the work of, and contains interviews with: Francis Collins, director of the National Center for Human Genome Research; J. Craig Venter, head of its rival, the private Celera Genomics; and the Whitehead Institute's Eric Lander, one of the leaders of the Human Genome Project
Calculating the secrets of life : applications of the mathematical sciences in molecular biology by Eric S Lander( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As researchers have pursued biology's secrets to the molecular level, mathematical and computer sciences have played an increasingly important role--in genome mapping, population genetics, and even the controversial search for "Eve," hypothetical mother of the human race. In this first-ever survey of the partnership between the two fields, leading experts look at how mathematical research and methods have made possible important discoveries in biology. The volume explores how differential geometry, topology, and differential mechanics have allowed researchers to "wind" and "unwind" DNA's double helix to understand the phenomenon of supercoiling. It explains how mathematical tools are revealing the workings of enzymes and proteins. And it describes how mathematicians are detecting echoes from the origin of life by applying stochastic and statistical theory to the study of DNA sequences. This informative and motivational book will be of interest to researchers, research administrators, and educators and students in mathematics, computer sciences, and biology
Symmetric designs : an algebraic approach by Eric S Lander( Book )

20 editions published in 1983 in English and German and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Symmetric designs are an important class of combinatorial structures which arose first in the statistics and are now especially important in the study of finite geometries

All about us by Brian Rix( Visual )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the genetic record carried by every person, and examines the latest information on the Human Genome Project, through interviews with Professor Eric Lander of MIT and others
The Human Genome Project : what are we hoping to learn? by Eric S Lander( Visual )

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this lecture, Eric Lander pursues the question of what we hope to learn from The Human Genome Project. First, Dr. Lander provides a brief history of the project. Then he discusses problems related to searching for the human as compared to animal or insect genomes, such as the lack of polymorphic genetic markers and the lack of the ability to arrange crosses at will. There are three billion DNA base pairs in the human genome. In order to develop a precise understanding of the human genome, a genetic map (inheritance patterns), a physical map, and a sequence map are needed. The sequence map is the most detailed. What the project hopes to learn is the location and function of all human genes. Equipment is needed to accomplish this, equipment Dr. Lander calls a functionator and a sequencinator, which have yet to be developed. He hopes to identify genetic markers (RFLPs) linked to a specific disease. He uses the example of Bloom syndrome to illustrate this idea. He explains the likelihood function. One can learn relationships from DNA sequencing. For example, a "zinc finger," which is a transcription factor, suggests a biochemical function. To conclude, Dr. Lander focuses on the challenges of the project
