The 8th edition of a standard textbook by Scott F. Gilbert. Covers the basic areas of vertebrate and invertebrate development, embryology and gene expression, with a full article list and bibliography.
For Love of Lakes weaves a delightful tapestry of history, science, emotion, and poetry for all who love lakes or enjoy nature writing. For Love of Lakes is an affectionate account documenting our species’ long relationship with lakes - their glacial origins, Thoreau and his environmental message, and the major perceptual shifts and advances in our understanding of lake ecology.

The third edition of this comprehensive survey provides a detailed examination of human genetics. Intended for students and entry level researchers, the volume begins with simple gene mechanics and covers gene functions, chromosomes, complex traits, gene discovery, and genetics in testing and treatment.
After noting that gardening with wildflowers is a growing environmentally-conscious trend, the coauthors of Prairie Directory of North America list native alternatives to nonnative plants. They recommend planting butterfly milkweed and orange coneflowers instead of orange daylilies that are naturalized/invasive in the Midwest. Includes color photographs and information on John Bartram, the "father of American botany".
16 chapters describing algorithms used in publicly available software tools for advanced research in clinical omics (e.g. genomics, proteomics, et cetera). Specific topics include techniques in cluster analysis, biomarkers in breast cancer, genome-wide proximal promoter analysis and interpretation, feature selection and machine learning with mass spectroscopy data, computational methods for analysis of two-dimensional gels, algorithms and methods for correlating experimental results with annotation databases, and analysis of biological processes and diseases using text mining approaches.
Discusses how chemistry and genomics can contribute to the therapeutic regeneration of tissue using stem cells. Among the topics are genome-wide expression analysis technologies, characterizing proteins by biological mass spectrometry, and regeneration screens in model organisms.
This book presents key analytical techniques for the analysis of genomics and proteomics data by detailing their underlying principles, merits and limitations. To exploit data obtained from experimental and observational studies, life scientists need to understand the analytical techniques and methods from statistics and data mining.
