Genetics and evolution, selected papers of A.H. Sturtevant by A. H Sturtevant( Book )

13 editions published between 1961 and 1964 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Genes, development, and cancer : the life and work of Edward B. Lewis by Edward B Lewis( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comments on the First Edition: A great book that is of interest to many geneticists, developmental biologists, and historians of science. (Prof. Matthew P. Scott - Stanford University) A wonderful compendium of Lewis' papers. Lipshitz has done an outstanding job of summarizing and in many cases clarifying Lewis' writings. (Prof. James F. Crow, University of Wisconsin, Madison) A very valuable reference for those studying developmental biology, radiation and cancer. (Dr. Susan Celniker, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, California) An excellent resource for understanding the emergence of developmental genetics. (Prof. Siegfried Roth, University of K??ln, Germany) Since the best way to become a good scientist is to understand how scientific ideas have been born and have developed, this book should be read by all graduate students in the areas of genetics, development and evolution. (Prof. Markus Noll, University of Zurich, Switzerland)

Hopeful monsters( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Prof. Mike Levine and Dr. Ed. Lewis (University of California, Berkeley) set out to isolate the gene that shapes embryo cells into organs and limbs. Dr. Lewis approached the problem by studying homeotic mutations in fruitflies and succeeded in isolating the 8 control (homeotic) genes which control the 8 sections of the fruitfly's body. They investigated a variety of creatures including humans and found that all had these 8 genes, showing an underlying genetic unity across the whole animal kingdom. The discovery of an organizer gene brought this research to a successful conclusion. It also opened a new field of investigation, for the organizer gene can be used to induce cell growth in damaged bones and may even provide a means of actually replacing organs and limbs

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Recorded on 20 November, 2001, in the Kerckhoff Library at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA., Elliot Meyerowitz, George W. Beadle Professor of Biology and Chair of the Division of Biology, California Institute of Technology, talks to Edward B. Lewis, Thomas Hunt Morgan Professor Emeritus, California Institute of Technology. Edward B. Lewis has made major contributions in two different areas of genetics. He was the first to recognise the significance of homeotic genes for developmental regulation, discovering and then elucidating the function of the Drosophila Bithorax Complex. For this he received the Nobel Prize in 1995. He was also the first to quantify the relation between ionising radiation and induction of human cancers, showing that radiation from medical X-rays and atomic bombs induced leukemias at defined dose-dependent rates. This work contributed to the understanding of fallout that led to the cessation of atmospheric atomic testing and current regulations for radiological protection

Animated and live sequences of the evolution of a fly
A genetic and cytological analysis of a tandem duplication and its included loci in Drosophila melanogaster by Edward B Lewis( )

1 edition published in 1942 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

<p>Summary</p> <p>I<br /> Two loci, Star and asteroid, in the aeoond chromosome of D. melanogaster were found to be extremely closely linked with an estimated standard map distance ot 0.01 to 0.04 unit. It was demoanstrated that these two loci are included in the 21 E. 1-2 doublet structure of the salivary gland chromosomes. Not only do the Star and asteroid mutants affect the eye in a similar way, but they also show position effects depending on how they are distributed between the two chromosomes. An interpretation of the observed phenomena is made in terms of a naturally occurring repeat in the chromosomes.</p> <p>II<br /> The Star Duplication is a tandem repeat in direct order for the four bands, 21 D 3, 4 and 21 E 1-2. It includes the Star and asteroid loci and with the use of mutants at these loci as markers. it has been possible to study unequal crossing over in females heterozygous as well as homozygous for the duplication. The genetic composition of the Star Duplication has been varied in ten distinct ways; the results indicate that there is probably a position effect exerted on the asteroid locus 1n the left section of the duplication causing the originally present asteroid change to act like a reversion to normal. It is likely that there is little or no position effect exerted by tho Star and asteroid 1oci in one section on those loci in the other section.</p>
Conversations in Genetics : an oral history of our intellectual heritage in genetics. Vol. 1.( Visual )

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

A collection of conversations with geneticists who have made major contributions to the conceptual foundations of modern genetics. These presentations reflect the thoughts and feelings of accomplished researchers as they recall their research achievements and describe the paths they took during various phases of their lives. They provide a rich resouce for anyone interested in the history of genetics and the evolution of scientific ideas
