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 11 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

Winding your way through DNA( Visual )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focuses on the ethics of DNA technology, including a look at the pros and cons of government regulation, the issues concerning the use of genetic evidence in court cases, and how society can adjust to the impact of new technology
Informatics meets genomics( Visual )

Information technology and genetic research are responsible for changes today that may have the most dramatic impact on future life. Vinton Cerf, a "father of the Internet," and Eric Lander, a key player in modern genome research, discuss technological change and how their fields may influence each other

Genes on trial genetics, behavior, and the law( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Could genetic research stigmatize people who carry a "bad" gene? Could the behavior actually be determined by that gene? If so, then just how free is free will? Moderated by Harvard Law School's Charles Ogletree, this Fred Friendly Seminar scrutinizes social, ethical, and legal issues involving genetic research into undesirable traits such as addiction to alcohol by exploring the relationship between the genetic basis for addiction and the limits of personal responsibility
Who gets to know?( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it comes to genetic testing, how much should a patient be told? If the news is bad, who else should the patient inform? And should such privileged information be made available to employers, insurance companies, and others? This Fred Friendly Seminar moderated by Harvard Law School's Arthur Miller offers a compelling discourse on the far-reaching ethical, social, legal, and economic implications of genetic testing. Panelists include U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer; Nancy Wexler, president of the Heredity Disease Foundation; Cynthia McFadden, ABC News senior legal correspondent; Nadine Strossen, president of the ACLU; and Rep. Louise McIntosh Slaughter (D-NY), sponsor of the Genetic non-discrimination in health insurance and employment act

Calculating the Secrets of Life Contributions of the Mathematical Sciences to Molecular Biology by Mathematics and Applications. Board on Mathematical Sciences. Committee on the Mathematical Sciences in Genome and Protein Structure Research National Research Council. Commission on Physical Sciences( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 2 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
