Evolution of the Human Genome I

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.

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

This is my hand. It can do all sorts of things. Most of the time it does good things, but sometimes... Kitamura introduces us to the wonders of something as simple as your hand - it can push, it can pull. It can paint, it can pat. And when your hand has a bad habit, it can pick your nose! Award-winning author and illustrator Satoshi Kitamura unfolds a wonderful celebration of the simple hand, also starring a favourite Kitamura character, Boots the cat.
