2 Hommes, femmes : la construction de la différence - Françoise Héritier
Auteur : Françoise Héritier
Genre : Génétique
XX, XY....comment devient-on un homme ou une femme ? Qui gouverne la construction de notre identité sexuelle ? Nos gènes ? Nos hormones ? La société ? La famille ? Simone de Beauvoir avait-elle raison lorsqu'elle écrivait " on ne naît pas femme, on le devient " ? Sauf accident, les lois de la génétique et de la physiologie font de nous des mâles ou des femelles. Mais au-delà de ce déterminisme génétique, nous sommes également façonnés dans notre intimité par le regard de nos parents, de nos proches et de la société tout entière. Si la différence des sexes structure la pensée humaine, peut-on changer les rapports entre les hommes et femmes ? qu'en disent les sciences sociales, les sciences humaines et les sciences du vivant ?

4 Genetics - Shana Capur
Auteur : Shana Capur
Genre : Science et nature
Biology is the fastest growing science, and life sciences are being funded and researched more and more. As a result, genetic testing and analysis has emerged in today’s society as a new way to predict one’s health. Scientists use genetic testing and analysis to map individuals’ genes to determine health risks for diseases and conditions or to determine ancestry. Although genetic testing is controversial to some, the benefits of genetic testing, such as early identification of possible diseases and proper dosages of medications, greatly outweigh the possible concerns.

6 Identically Different - Professor Tim Spector
Auteur : Professor Tim Spector
Genre : Science de la vie
Professor Tim Spector reveals the astonishing new science that is changing everything we thought we knew about genes and identity. 'Lucid, surprising and with a very human face. It brings epigenetics alive ... a great read!' Michael Mosley

Since the discovery of DNA, scientists have believed that genes are fixed entities that cannot be changed by environment - we inherit them, pass them on to our children and take them with us when we die.

Professor Tim Spector reveals how the latest genetic research and his own pioneering studies on epigenetics are rewriting everything we thought we knew about genes, identity and evolution. Conceptually, he explains, our genes are not fixed entities but more like plastic, able to change shape and evolve, and these changes can be passed on to future generations.

8 Giants of Genetics - William Sofer
Auteur : William Sofer
Genre : Science de la vie
Giants of Genetics focusses less on the facts and more on the process of discovery in molecular genetics. In particular it tries to answer the following questions:
• Who were the major innovators?  How did they get to their position?  Who were their lesser known colleagues and collaborators?  Who were their major adversaries?  What were the great advances they discovered and how did they come to make them?  Did they fully understand the implications of their findings? Did they get the credit they deserved in their lifetimes? What was the intellectual climate like in their time?  What obstacles did they have to overcome?  This book grew out of the author's experiences teaching both precollege and senior citizen students.

13 Design in Nature - Adrian Bejan & J. Peder Zane
Auteur : Adrian Bejan & J. Peder Zane
Genre : Science de la vie
In this groundbreaking book, Adrian Bejan takes the recurring patterns in nature—trees, tributaries, air passages, neural networks, and lightning bolts—and reveals how a single principle of physics, the Constructal Law, accounts for the evolution of these and all other designs in our world.
Everything—from biological life to inanimate systems—generates shape and structure and evolves in a sequence of ever-improving designs in order to facilitate flow. River basins, cardiovascular systems, and bolts of lightning are very efficient flow systems to move a current—of water, blood, or electricity. Likewise, the more complex architecture of animals evolve to cover greater distance per unit of useful energy, or increase their flow across the land. Such designs also appear in human organizations, like the hierarchical "flowcharts" or reporting structure

17 The Highly Sensitive Person in Love - Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D.
Auteur : Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D.
Genre : Développement personnel
Do you fall in love hard, but fear intimacy? Are you sick of being told that you are “too sensitive”? Do you struggle to respect a less-sensitive partner? Or have you given up on love, afraid of being too sensitive or shy to endure its wounds?

Statistics show that 50 percent of what determines divorce is genetic temperament. And, if you are one of the 20 percent of people who are born highly sensitive, the risk of an unhappy relationship is especially high. Your finely tuned nervous system, which picks up on subtleties and reflects deeply, would be a romantic asset if both you and your partner understood you better. But without that understanding, your sensitivity is likely to be making your close relationships painful and complicated.

Based on Elaine N. Aron’s groundbreaking research on temperament and intimacy, The Highly Sensitive Person in Love of

28 Eat Like the Animals - David Raubenheimer & Steven J. Simpson
Auteur : David Raubenheimer & Steven J. Simpson
Genre : Régime et nutrition
How is it that a baboon and a blob of slime mould instinctively know what to eat for optimal health, balancing their protein, fat and carb intake in perfect proportions?

In new, groundbreaking research that is transforming our understanding of nutrition, animals from locusts to lions and yes, humans too, demonstrate the remarkable science behind appetite.

Appetite communicates the body's nutritional needs to the brain, and eating in accordance with your body's demands, like the animals, should ensure optimal health, but the modern fast food world wreaks havoc on this evolutionarily honed system.

In several landmark studies, Raubenheimer and Simpson prove that appetite can be hacked – we can eat for optimal health, for increased fertility or for a longer lifespan. Understanding the science of the appetite offers tremendous power in shaping our bodies and

46 Biological, Diagnostic and Therapeutic Advances in Alzheimer's Disease - Ghulam Md Ashraf & Athanasios Alexiou
Auteur : Ghulam Md Ashraf & Athanasios Alexiou
Genre : Neuroscience
This book discusses the latest research into the highly prevalent neurodevelopmental disease most commonly associated with aging: Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Even after years of research, Alzheimer’s disease is still far from being cured. It presents a range of common symptoms in the form of behavioral and cognitive impairments. This book describes the symptoms and the biology behind them. 

The contents covers latest findings on the genetics involved and various factors and pathways influencing disease development. It also covers various non-pharmacological therapies like immunotherapy, use of natural products, and employing nanotechnology in both the detection and treatment of AD. This book also highlights the role of diet and nutrition in healthy aging. Given its scope, it offers a valuable asset for researchers and clinicians alike.

48 The DNA, RNA, and Histone Methylomes - Stefan Jurga & Jan Barciszewski
Auteur : Stefan Jurga & Jan Barciszewski
Genre : Génétique
This book reviews the chemical, regulatory, and physiological mechanisms of protein arginine and lysine methyltransferases, as well as nucleic acid methylations and methylating enzymes. Protein and nucleic acid methylation play key and diverse roles in cellular signalling and regulating macromolecular cell functions.

Protein arginine and lysine methyltransferases are the predominant enzymes that catalyse S-adenosylmethionine (SAM)-dependent methylation of protein substrates. These enzymes catalyse a nucleophilic substitution of a methyl group to an arginine or lysine side chain nitrogen (N) atom. Cells also have additional protein methyltransferases, which target other amino acids in peptidyl side chains or N-termini and C-termini, such as glutamate, glutamine, and histidine. All these protein methyltransferases use a similar mechanism. In contrast, nucleic acids (DNA and RNA)

49 Lentiviral Vectors and Gene Therapy - David Escors, Karine Breckpot, Frederick Arce, Grazyna Kochan & Holly Stephenson
Auteur : David Escors, Karine Breckpot, Frederick Arce, Grazyna Kochan & Holly Stephenson
Genre : Génétique
Gene therapy was conceived during the early and mid part of the 20th century. At first, it was considered a revolutionary biomedical procedure, which could potentially cure any disease for which the molecular bases were understood. Since then, gene therapy has gone through many stages and has evolved from a nearly unrealistic perspective to a real life application. Clinical efficacy in humans was demonstrated at the beginning of this century after its successful application in small-scale clinical trials to cure severe immunodeficiency in children. However, their successes were overshadowed some time later by the occurrence of vector-related leukaemia in a number of treated children. It is in this context that lentiviral vectors have appeared, with improved efficiency and, possibly, increased biosafety. Very recently, the first clinical trials with lentivectors have been carried out with

50 Gene Environment Interactions - Moyra Smith
Auteur : Moyra Smith
Genre : Génétique
Gene Environment Interactions: Nature and Nurture in the Twenty-first Century offers a rare, synergistic view of ongoing revelations in gene environment interaction studies, drawing together key themes from epigenetics, microbiomics, disease etiology, and toxicology to illuminate pathways for clinical translation and the paradigm shift towards precision medicine. Across eleven chapters, Dr. Smith discusses interactions with the environment, human adaptations to environmental stimuli, pathogen encounters across the centuries, epigenetic modulation of gene expression, transgenerational inheritance, the microbiome’s intrinsic effects on human health, and the gene-environment etiology of cardiovascular, metabolic, psychiatric, behavioral and monogenic disorders.

Later chapters illuminate how our new understanding of gene environment interactions are driving advances in p
