9780231170840: Junk DNA: A Journey Through the Dark Matter of the Genome
Review:

Engaging, informative, and humorous, Dr. Carey's appealing book will be of interest to many readers. -- Sharon Y.R. Dent, Ph.D., University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Carey makes two points very clearly: that our understanding is tentative and evolving, and that chromosomal functioning is far more intricate than anyone ever hypothesized. Publisher's Weekly Junk DNA provides a cutting-edge, exhaustive guide to the rapidly changing, ever-more mysterious genome. -- Linda Geddes New Scientist [Junk DNA], which is frequently humorous and well documented, does a fine job of explaining a complex subject for lay readers who are willing to put in some effort. Library Journal Carey's enthusiasm for her subject is infectious... An excellent introduction to a subject that we are certain to be hearing a lot more about in the near future. -- Mark Diston The Register Junk DNA serves as a nice primer. The Scientist

Descripción Columbia University Press, United States, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 226 x 154 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. For decades after the identification of the structure of DNA, scientists focused only on genes, the regions of the genome that contain codes for the production of proteins. Other regions that make up 98 percent of the human genome were dismissed as junk, sequences that serve no purpose. But researchers have recently discovered variations and modulations in this junk DNA that are involved with a number of intractable diseases. Our increasing knowledge of junk DNA has led to innovative research and treatment approaches that may finally ameliorate some of these conditions. Junk DNA can play vital and unanticipated roles in the control of gene expression, from fine-tuning individual genes to switching off entire chromosomes. These functions have forced scientists to revisit the very meaning of the word gene and have engendered a spirited scientific battle over whether or not this genomic nonsense is the source of human biological complexity. Drawing on her experience with leading scientific investigators in Europe and North America, Nessa Carey provides a clear and compelling introduction to junk DNA and its critical involvement in phenomena as diverse as genetic diseases, viral infections, sex determination in mammals, and evolution. We are only now unlocking the secrets of junk DNA, and Nessa Carey s book is an essential resource for navigating the history and controversies of this fast-growing, hotly disputed field.
