High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Mew is one of the fictional species of Pokémon creatures from Nintendo's and Game Freak's multi-billion-dollar Pokémon media franchise a collection of video games, anime, manga, books, trading cards, and other media created by Satoshi Tajiri. It is considered a legendary Pokémon in the Pokémon video games and anime. Mew was programmed into Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow by creator Shigeki Morimoto as a secret character. As such, its presence has been surrounded by rumors and myths, which contributed to make the Pokémon franchise a success. Mew cannot be obtained in the games except from glitching in Red, Blue, and Yellow, use of the GameShark or Action Replay, or Nintendo promotional events. Mew's first film appearance was in Pokémon: The First Movie as a main character alongside Mewtwo. The movie reveals that a fossilized Mew hair, found in the Amazon River by a team of scientists, was used to create Mewtwo, a genetically enhanced Mew clone.

Evolution of the Human Genome I
172,67 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book reviews the human genome from an evolutionary perspective. No such book has ever been published before, although there are many books on human genomes. There are two parts in this book: Overview of the Human Genome (Part I) and The Human Genome Viewed through Genes (Part II). In Part I, after a brief review of human evolution and the human genome (by Naruya Saitou), chapters on rubbish or junk DNA (by Dan Graur), GC content heterogeneity (by Satoshi Oota), protein coding and RNA coding genes (by Tadashi Imanishi), duplicated genes (by Takashi Kitano), recombinations (by Montanucci and Bertranpetit), and copy number variations including microsatellites (by Naoko Takezaki) are discussed. Readers can obtain various new insights on the human genome from this part. In Part II, genes in X and Y chromosomes (by Yoko Satta and others), HLA genes (by Timothy A. Jinam), opsin genes (by Shoji Kawamura and Amanda D. Melin), genes related to phenotypic variations (by Ryosuke Kimura), transcription factors (by Mahoko Takahashi and So Nakagawa), diabetes-related genes (by Ituro Inoue), disease genes in general (by Ituro Inoue and Hirofumi Nakaoka), and microbial genomes (by Chaochun Wei) are discussed. The human genome sequences were determined in 2004, and after more than 10 years we are now beginning to understand the human genome from an evolutionary point of view. This book furnishes readers with a good summary of current research in the field.

Beware of the Crocodile

Wry narration from Jenkins ( The Squirrels’ Busy Year) and dreamy illustrations by Kitamura ( My Hand) elevate what could be a pedestrian animal exploration...It’s not just a good crocodile reference; it’s a good introduction to reference books. —Publishers Weekly (starred review) “If there’s one thing you should know about crocodiles, it’s that they’re really scary,” begins this enticing picture-book overview of the toothy reptiles...With its measured, coy joy in the fierce details, this is the crocodile book that many kids have been waiting for, and it will end up on repeat as a readaloud and a readalone for many. —Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review) Kitamura’s mixed-media illustrations correspond with the text but include a bit of whimsy in extratextual features, such as the depiction of a nattily dressed crocodile scanning a restaurant menu of favored prey in the back matter. Chomp down on this one; there’s a lot of meat on these narrative bones. —The Horn Book It may be hard to love a crocodile but, by taking a humorous approach, Beware of the Crocodile manages to make this fearsome reptile almost endearing. The combination of informative, non-judgemental text and delightful illustrations makes this a perfect gift for any child who loves animals. —New York Journal of Books As fascinating to read as it is fun to look at, Beware of Crocodiles is fast-paced, full of facts, cool illustrations, and a dash of humor here and there, making this book educational and enjoyable. —Reading Eagle (from Kendal Rautzhan's 'Books to Borrow') Martin Jenkins writes in a playful, informative way about crocs and their habit of waiting just below the surface of lakes and rivers for passers-by who stop to have a drink...Satoshi Kitamura’s expressive style of illustration is perfectly suited to presenting these toothy monsters, whose curved jaws look—almost—as if they are smiling. —The Wall Street Journal
