Calculating the secrets of life : applications of the mathematical sciences in molecular biology by Eric S Lander( )

15 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 2,264 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( )

18 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 1,228 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. This book presents some of the algebraic techniques that have been brought to bear on the question of existence, construction and symmetry of symmetric designs - including methods inspired by the algebraic theory of coding and by the representation theory of finite groups - and includes many results. Rich in examples and containing over 100 problems, the text also provides an introduction to many of the modern algebraic approaches used, through six lengthy appendices and supplementary problems. The book will be of interest to both combinatorialists and algebraists, and could be used as a course text for a graduate course
Cracking the code of life( Visual )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 1,054 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
Scanning life's matrix : genes, proteins, and small molecules( Visual )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Four lectures on genomic science and chemical genetics, with emphasis on how molecular biology, robotics, and advanced computation are combining to characterize a new generation of biomedical research
Millennium evenings at the White House( Visual )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This item is a video recording of President William Jefferson Clinton and First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton hosting the eighth White House Millennium Evening Lecture in the East Room of the White House. The title of this lecture is, 'Information Meets Genomics.'

The Human Genome Project : what are we hoping to learn? by Eric S Lander( Visual )

5 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
Topics in algebraic coding theory by Eric S Lander( )

5 editions published in 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Informatics meets genomics by Millennium Evening at the White House( Visual )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Exploring nanosyntax by Lena Baunaz( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By offering the first in-depth introduction to the framework of nanosyntax, Exploring Nanosyntax fills a major gap in current theoretical literature. The volume contains original contributions by senior and junior researchers in the field and will also constitute an ideal handbook for advanced students and researchers in linguistics

Winding your way through DNA( Visual )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 6 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
Genes on trial : genetics, behavior, and the Law( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 5 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
