Présentation de l'éditeur

Epigenetics can potentially revolutionize our understanding of the structure and behavior of biological life on Earth. It explains why mapping an organism's genetic code is not enough to determine how it develops or acts and shows how nurture combines with nature to engineer biological diversity. Surveying the twenty-year history of the field while also highlighting its latest findings and innovations, this volume provides a readily understandable introduction to the foundations of epigenetics. Nessa Carey, a leading epigenetics researcher, connects the field's arguments to such diverse phenomena as how ants and queen bees control their colonies; why tortoiseshell cats are always female; why some plants need cold weather before they can flower; and how our bodies age and develop disease. Reaching beyond biology, epigenetics now informs work on drug addiction, the long-term effects of famine, and the physical and psychological consequences of childhood trauma. Carey concludes with a discussion of the future directions for this research and its ability to improve human health and well-being. Related Subjects --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great science book! 4 juin 2012
Par Gavin Scott - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This is one of those books that introduces an entirely new and fascinating topic. A similar work would be Chaos: Making a New Science which introduced the concepts of chaotic dynamical systems at a time when even many practitioners of the sciences would not have heard of it.

Similarly, this book introduces the discoveries in epigenetics (epi- meaning "on", or a layer on top of classical genetics) and pretty much all of this will be new information unless you have been actively working in the field of cell biology over the past few years.

The book talks about the paradigm shift that is occurring as cell biologists are realizing that this epigenetic information is as complex and important to the correct function of life as the underlying DNA genome, and even allows for Lamarckian inheritance in certain cases where an offspring's own epigenetic information and phenotype can be influenced by that of the parents, meaning that some environmental effects in a parent's life can directly influence future generations.

Also much of the non-protein-coding genome that for many years was considered to be unimportant "junk" is now turning out to be very important as it can be transcribed into functional RNA molecules that perform important functions. The book contains a simple graphic showing that the ratio of the non-protein-coding DNA to that of traditional protein coding genes increases in direct proportion with the complexity of the organism. The fundamental genes and proteins between say a chimpanzee and a human are virtually identical and it now begins to look as though it's that "junk" DNA that makes all the difference.

This is a fascinating look at recent developments in the ever-accelerating biological revolution and I highly recommend it to everyone who yearns to understand how life works.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Could hardly be more fascinating! 2 janvier 2012
Par tiggrie AKA Sarah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Word of warning - I may gush! I'm no biologist, but Nessa Carey manages to make epigenetics clear and incredibly interesting to me. This is not an easy read, in that it requires one to think and occasionally to do a little mental gymnastics to get one's head around the concepts she introduces, but nevertheless it's the kind of book that can be gulped down in large servings because Carey is skilled at explaining these high-falutin' concepts so well.

The topics range from inherited traits to cloning and back again, and I found even the descriptions of how certain experiments were undertaken were such that they read incredibly well. This is a book that could havebeen dry as dust, but it's not.

I think probably one where the time taken to read the sample is well spent - I'm sure some people just won't find this that interesting - but if you are at all interested in science, biology, DNA, and the mystery of how things are and aren't passed on, then this is a must read. Absorbing, educational, and downright fascinating. Brilliant.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Superb Reading 16 juin 2012
Par Deborah DePreta - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
What a refreshingly erudite and informative book! It was in-depth, at times jam packed with information, particularly for a person with no biology background, but the author went to great length to explain in a very understandable manner some of the complexity of epigenetics, genetics and the current state of our knowledge about these subjects. I highly recommend this book for the interested reader.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Simple, but not simplistic 18 décembre 2012
Par Arnie Berg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I am writing as a person with a graduate degree in Bioinformatics with a special interest in epigenetics, and I can confidently say that this is one of the clearest introductory presentations of epigenetics that I have encountered. The book is written at the undergraduate level, but it is not simplistic. It hits all the high points of epigenetics and pulls together the latest in research into this fascinating area of science. Anyone with a rudimentary background in genetics should have no trouble absorbing the concepts articulated in this book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fasinating 31 octobre 2012
Par William Tell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Some readers may find this review of a critically important emerging field of science over detailed. It's not written for lightweights or readers of US Today. But it's well worth the time and effort and yields a host of fascinating facts, observations and predictions. Its subject matter is the very essence of life, your life and those around you. It is, as the title infers, revolutionary. The understanding of how we influence our genes (and of course are influenced by them) is changing rapidly and the author clearly has a magnificent grasp of the facts, the science and researchers on the cutting edge. A number of her predictions have already come true (including the latest Nobel Prize winners) and her speculations about the future alone are worth the price. I rate the book 4 (rather than 5) as it dwells excessively on details of biochemistry that, for the layman, might seem unnecessary to understand the bigger picture. But that aside it was absolutely fascinating and thought provoking.

This book may be obsolete in 2 years so pick it up now and be amazed by what has been learned and humbled by how much has yet to understood.
