HIV and AIDS [electronic resource]

Loading...
Explores recent developments in the study of HIV and AIDS, the future global impact of the current infection levels, and the ethical issues surrounding current research and treatments. Explains how studying individuals with natural resistance to HIV has led to insights into the infection process and may produce new treatments or a vaccine.

Genetics of Development [electronic resource]

Loading...
Discusses how organisms as different as flies, fish, and humans share a set of genes, known as a genetic toolkit, which guides development. Presents new perspectives on the remarkable similarity in these molecules and processes and the ethical questions involved in this research.
Online

8.

Cell Biology and Cancer [electronic resource]

Loading...
Explains that cancers result when genes required for normal cell function are mutated and the resulting cells undergo other changes ultimately leading to uncontrolled division. Reveals new information on normal cell function, proto-oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes and their role in the cell cycle. Covers current research in drug design for specific cancers.

Biodiversity [electronic resource]

Loading...
Explains that with current extinction rates exceeding those of previous mass extinctions, many biodiversity studies focus on efforts to count the Earth's species before they are lost. Explores current field experiments studying complex ecosystems and how environmental and biodiversity changes might affect their functions.
Online
