The Genetics of diabetes mellitus by W Creutzfeldt( Book )

14 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On February 21 and 22, 1975, an International Workshop on the "Genetics of Diabetes Mellitus" was held in Göttingen, West-Germany. This workshop had been organized hy the Department of Medicine, University of Göttingen, and was generously sponsored by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft. Some forty geneticists and clinicians from Europe and N orth America, working in the field of diabetes both in man and laboratory animals, participated. The 25lectures presented at the workshop are now assembled for publication. Some of the animated discussion which followed the presentations has been included in the final papers by the speakers. Some lectures summarize the recent literature, others present data from recent research. Thus, a comprehensive and modem review of the theoretical and practical problems of diabetes are offered by this volume. related to the genetics The confusion about the mode of inheritance of diabetes mellitus during the last two decades can only be resolved by joint discussions between geneticists interested in diabetes and clinical diabetologists interested in genetics. Knowledge of modem genetics and of the heterogeneity of diabetes mellitus are necessary in order to disentangle the complex scene. Optimistically, the publication of this work on the genetics of diabetes will help to achieve this aim and to establish the concept of genetic heterogeneity of diabetes mellitus. The editors are grateful to Springer-Verlag, Heidelberg, for the prompt publication of these proceedings and to the Farbwerke Hoechst AG, Frankfurt (M), for their contribution to the printing costs

Physician to the gene pool : genetic lessons and other stories by James V Neel( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A founding father of human medical genetics, and a self-described geneticist of the "old school," James Neel has worked the "genetic trenches" in some of the most far-flung regions of the globe in pursuit of clues to genetic riddles. In Physician to the Gene Pool, we accompany him on his early groundbreaking research into the origins of sickle cell anemia. We witness the full horror of the nuclear devastation wreaked upon Hiroshima and Nagasaki, where he went as part of the first team to study the genetic effects of exposure to radiation. And we journey with him as, with wife Priscilla by his side, he travels deep into the Amazon basin to conduct his classic population studies of the Yanomama. But Physician to the Gene Pool is more than just a scientific travelogue. A firm believer in the social contract that binds the scientist to the interests of the commonweal, Dr. Neel pauses often in his narrative to consider the broader implications of genetic research. He addresses the role of human genetics in a world careening toward a population explosion of Malthusian proportions, and levels scathing criticisms at hypocritical leaders who practice the politics of piety in place of common sense. Challenging the received genetic wisdom of the day, he takes colleagues to task for skewing professional judgement to the politics of "big science," and he admonishes them of the dangers of relying too heavily on fashionable scientific enterprise such as the Human Genome Project and the drive for genetic engineering. And finally, in the closing chapters, he offers his provocative "genetic prescriptions" for some of the greatest challenges facing humanity in the 21st century
