This note covers the
following topics: quantitative versus qualitative genetics, Hardy-Weinberg law
for gene frequency stability in large populations, Relationship and inbreeding,
Estimation of breeding values, Inbreeding, crossing and bred structure,
Chromosomes and chromosome aberrations, Genetics on hair and coat colour in
mammals, Estimating- and biotechnology and disease resistance.
The objective of this note is have a
greater awareness and appreciation of classical and molecular genetics with
emphasis on genetic material and its formation, transmission, function and
organization. Topics covered includes: historical perspective of genetics,
inheritance patterns and the chromosomal basis of heredity, sex chromosomes in
sex determination and sexual dimorphism, cells reproduce through DNA and nucleic
acids, DNA transcribes into RNA that ultimately translates into protein,
prokaryotic and eukaryotic genes, genetic basis of cancer and how it relates to
the cell cycle.
This lecture note
covers the following topics: The genetic structure of populations, Genetic
transmission in populations, The genetics of natural selection, Genetic drift,
Quantitative genetics, Molecular evolution, Phylogeography.
This book, Human
Genetic Diseases contains many diverse chapters, dealing with human genetic
diseases, methods to diagnose them, novel approaches to treat them and molecular
approaches and concepts to understand them. Although this book does not give a
comprehensive overview of human genetic diseases, and the sixteen book chapters
will be a valuable resource for researchers and students in different life and
This book aims to provide an overview on
some of the latest developments in several genetic diseases. It contains 14
chapters focused on various genetic disorders addressing epidemiology, etiology,
molecular basis and novel treatment options for these diseases.
This book contains important findings about the physiology
and genetics of Helicobacter pylori are summarized in this volume, it also
includes sections on epidemiology, bacteriology, bacterial virulence and
pathogenic mechanisms, pathogenesis in the host, diagnosis and treatment, animal
models, and other Helicobacter species.
