      Introduction. The papers in this issue of the ILAR Journal discuss the current understanding of the genetics and genomics of apes (particularly the chimpanzee), and old world monkeys, such as macaques, baboons, and vervets. These species provide highly relevant models for many aspects of human physiology, behavior, and by: 4.   The development of human genetics world-wide during the twentieth century, especially across Europe, has occurred against a background of repeated catastrophes, including two world wars and the ideological problems and repression posed by Nazism and Communism. The published scientific literature gives few hints of these problems and there is a danger that Cited by: 1.

      In this third of a continuing series of essays by investigators from many fields but with a common interest in human genetics, each of the participants, as in the first two volumes shows particular competence in the area he discusses. The editors have done an admirable job in continually improving the over-all quality of the volume.   The Human Genetics Commission (HGC) has published its final report, which marks the end of its 12 years as an advisory body to the Government. Following a review of arm's-length and non-departmental public bodies in October , it was decided the HGC would be reconstituted as a Departmental Expert Committee.

Progress in Medical Genetics: Volume 5 covers the improvements in nutrition and control of childhood disease. This book is divided into five chapters that evaluate the characteristics of thalassemias, an inherited defect in hemoglobin.

Moreover, scientifi c progress in genetics has practical implications for human well-being. Improved knowledge of the genetic cause of an increasing number of human diseases helps to refi ne diagnosis, to fi nd new therapeutic approaches, and above all, to prevent genetic diseases.

So far, human genetics has had less of an. It's a revolution. Cracking the genetic code allowed us to study diseases at the molecular level, which is increasing our knowledge of potential preventions and treatments for diseases. Indeed, genetics has become central to the science of medicine.

This book is devoted to the collection, interpretation and analysis of population genetic data. Among the topics included here are studies on human evolutionary history, molecular techniques for generating data, statistical and computational techniques for the interpretation of such data, and stochastic models for genealogy and population structure.

Indeed the present popularity of human genetics may in part stem from the promise of broad exchange between the various life sciences in an age of exact specialization. Thus the medical reader of this collection should realize at the outset that the proper study of human genetics is necessarily grounded in general genetics.

Genetics is a complex field of study that has substantially come to the fore in the past few years, with the high level of publicity surrounding the Genome Project that led to sequencing of the whole human by: 1.

An international panel of speakers trace the progress of human genetics from its beginning to the present day, in various communities in different countries. "This is a book for your library, one which will not go out of date and one which might be an excellent gift for a retiring colleague or for a graduating student of genetics.".

Human genetics is the medical field with the most rapid progress. This book aims to provide an overview on some of the latest developments in several genetic diseases. This is a valuable resource for medical practitioners, researchers and students.

Progress in Human Bitter Phenylthiocarbamide Genetics With Danielle R.

Reed Phenylthiocarbamide (PTC) is a chemical compound that tastes bitter. The various current interests in human genetics are extremely well depicted in this eighth volume of Progress in Medical Genetics. Chapter 1, by Fenner, deals with the genetic aspects of viral diseases of animals.

This is a scholarly piece of work and raises many interesting questions. HUMAN GENETICS AND SOCIETY engages students and demonstrates the relevance of genetics with an integrated case-based approach. Written for non-science majors, this text grabs student attention and shows them the importance of genetics by placing concepts within real-life contexts that students can appreciate throughout every chapter.

One reason is simply an interest in better understanding ourselves. As a branch of genetics, human genetics concerns itself with what most of us consider to be the most interesting species on earth: Homo sapiens.DNA diagnosis is being rapidly intro­ duced into medical genetics.

All this, as well as the extensive progress in most other fields of human and medical genetics, had to be considered in the prepara­ tion of this second edition.

The book has been extensively revised and rewritten.
