Coming to life : how genes drive development by C Nüsslein-Volhard( Book )

28 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christiane Nusslein-Volhard, winner of The Nobel Prize in Medicine, gives a concise and illustrative overview of genetics, evolution, and cellular processes as well as a discussing of current ethical issues in human biology. "Coming to Life" is a remarkable journey through developmental biology that reveals miraculous processes in the microscopic world of cells. Through an accounting of groundbreaking discoveries, Christiane Nusslein-Volhard tells us many answers to historical and contemporary questions in science. For example, she brings us the newest knowledge about embryonic forms, explains the genetic mechanisms that influence adult development of all animals, and shares insights into the ethical standards society moist uphold in the face of new scientific discoveries. As the author leads us from laboratory research to its applications in human beings, we also come to understand why children look like their parents, how an embryonic cell knows to become an eye rather than an eyelash, and other incredible influences hat result in variety in life. Complete with her own hand-drawn illustrations, "Coming to Life" gives a rare opportunity to understand a Nobel Prize-winner's passion for science in concise, understandable language
Zebrafish : a practical approach by Ralf Dahm( Book )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a complete set of instructions to allow researchers to use zebrafish in their laboratory. It also provides a comprehensive collection of protocols for the most powerful techniques to study them. These include the analysis of embryos using in situ hybridization and antibody staining, cell labelling and transplantation methods, along with techniques for manipulating gene expression, mutagenesis, mapping and cloning. An atlas of embryonic stages of development in the zebrafish and an invaluable compilation of all published zebrafish mutations are also included."--BOOK JACKET
Of fish, fly, worm, and man : lessons from developmental biology for human gene function and disease by C Nüsslein-Volhard( Book )

12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first complete genome sequence of a multicellular organism, Caenorhabditis elegans, has been determined recently. Several more will follow soon, among them the genome sequences of Drosophila melanogaster and the human. With these achievements, the stage is set for the next phase of "large-scale" biology, the study of the function of genes and the interactions between their protein products. The aim of the Ernst Schering Research Foundation Workshop 29 was to discuss the contribution of research on model organisms which are particularly suited for genetic and biological research, to the understanding of gen­ eral principles of biology as well as the basis for human diseases. This area of research has not only unveiled the basic molecular mechanisms of development of higher organisms, but has also made major contri­ butions to the elucidation of complex signal transduction pathways that play crucial roles both in ontogeny and human diseases. Establishing the complete molecular anatomy of an organism is a demanding but rather well-defined task. However, compared to the technical and scientific challenges of large-scale sequencing and the bioinformatics analysis of complete genome data, the assignment of function to the genes of multicellular organisms may still seem like a fishing expedition, with no universal road to success. One approach is based on large-scale technologies. The use of mi­ croarrays for multiple gene expression analysis is one element in this effort, providing important information on the cell- or tissue-specific activation of genes over time

Schönheit der Tiere : Evolution biologischer Ästhetik by C Nüsslein-Volhard( )

5 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Naturschöne und das Kunstschöne berühren sich vielfach. Die mit dem Nobelpreis ausgezeichnete Biologin Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard zeigt, welche Funktionen visuelle Attraktion bei Tieren besitzt. Natürliche 'standards of beauty' sind, im Anschluss an Darwin, Resultat und Motor zweigeschlechtlicher Fortpflanzung, wobei die relativ schmucklose Oberfläche des Menschen enorme Gestaltungsspielräume ermöglicht. Körperliche Signale - Farben, Töne, Gerüche - besitzen zugleich eine umfassendere kommunikative Funktion im interspezifischen Zusammenleben von Tier- und Pflanzenarten. Wie kommt es aber zur Ausbildung von Farben und Mustern an der Körperoberfläche ? Erst in jüngster Zeit ist es gelungen, die molekulargenetischen Mechanismen zu entschlüsseln, die zur Farbproduktion und -verteilung führen. Im zweiten Teil ihres Essays zeichnet Nüsslein-Volhard die wissenschaftsgeschichtliche Entwicklung der letzten Jahrzehnte nach und fasst ihre bahnbrechenden Studien zum Zebrafisch - ihrem Modellorganismus - zusammen
