Mobile DNA book thoroughly reviews our current scientific understanding of the significant role that mobile genetic elements play in the evolution and function of genomes and organismsa€“from plants and animals to humans. Renowned geneticist Haig Kazazian offers an accessible intellectual history of the fielda€™s research strategies and concerns, explaining how advances have opened up new questions, and how new tools and capabilities have encouraged still more progress. He introduces todaya€™s key strategies for advancing the field, and previews long-term research strategies that may lead to even deeper insights. Next, in Investigating the Human Genome, leading medical genetics scholar Moyra Smith reviews current and recent work in genetics and genomics to assess progress in understanding human variation and the pathogenesis of common and rare diseases linked to genetics. Youa€™ll discover how these advances are shedding new light on issues ranging from human origins to psychiatric disease, Alzheimera€™s to epigenetics. Finally, in Genes, Chromosomes, and Disease, Nicholas Wright Gillham offers an exceptionally readable overview of the rise and transformations of medical genetics a€“ and of the eugenic impulses that it has inspired.
