Viral Genome Packaging: Genetics, Structure, and Mechanism by Carlos E. Catalano

By Carlos E. Catalano

Viral Genome Packaging focuses at the technique of genome "packaging" inside a pre-formed viral procapsid. The chapters of this book concentrate at the biochemistry, enzymology and structural points of the genome packaging equipment. This book defines a huge mechanistic foundation for the method around the prokaryotic and eukaryotic border, and for DNA and RNA viruses. The biochemical, biophysical and structural points of genome packaging are tested intimately.

The Neural Crest in Development and Evolution

A dialogue of the neural crest and neural crest cells, facing their discovery, their embryological and evolutionary origins, their mobile derivatives - in either agnathan and jawed vertebrates or gnathostomes - and the vast subject matters of migration and differentiation in common improvement. The e-book additionally considers what is going flawed whilst improvement is misdirected through mutations, or through publicity of embryos to exogenous brokers equivalent to medicines, alcohol, or extra diet A, and comprises discussions of tumours and syndromes and delivery defects related to neural crest cells.

Evolving Pathways: Key Themes in Evolutionary Developmental Biology

Evolutionary developmental biology, or 'evo-devo', is the learn of the connection among evolution and improvement. Dealing particularly with the generative mechanisms of organismal shape, evo-devo is going instantly to the middle of the developmental starting place of version, the uncooked fabric on which average choice (and random float) can paintings.

Biology of Aging

Biology of getting older provides the organic rules that experience ended in a brand new figuring out of the motives of getting older and describes how those easy ideas aid one to appreciate the human event of organic getting older, toughness, and age-related ailment. meant for undergraduate biology scholars, it describes how the speed of organic getting older is measured; explores the mechanisms underlying mobile getting older; discusses the genetic pathways that impact durability in quite a few organisms; outlines the traditional age-related adjustments and the practical decline that happens in physiological platforms over the lifespan; and considers the consequences of modulating the speed of getting older and durability.
