Наука подтверждает – 8. Сборник статей

Андрей Тихомиров

Все люди – родственники! Научно доказано, что человек – мутированная обезьяна (Homo sapiens) и самый ближайший к нам родственник по расшифрованному геному – горилла. Всё остальное (креационизм, «избранность» неких народов) не более чем самообман. Человек, так же как и другие существа, появился не в результате «божественных сил», а лишь путем мутаций, генетических изменений. Главная мутация произошла примерно 2,4 миллиона лет назад в гене, который контролирует развитие челюстных мышц.

Раковина Авиллы

Владимир Черепкин

Интересная сказочная история о мальчике, волею случая попавшего в подводный мир и прилагающего титанические усилия для возвращений в обычную сухопутную жизнь. Читатель встретится со многими очень интересными персонажами из подводного мира, с захватывающим остросюжетным сценарием их личных взаимодействий, взаимодействий с береговым миром и взаимодействий с юными представителями суши, оказавшимися в необычной для себя, водной среде.

Mutual Aid

Pablo Servigne

In the merciless arena of life, we are all subject to the law of the jungle, to ruthless competition and the survival of the fittest – such is the myth that has given rise to a society that has become toxic for our planet and for our and future generations. But today the lines are shifting. A growing number of new movements and thinkers are challenging this skewed view of the world and reviving words such as ‘altruism’, ‘cooperation’, ‘kindness’ and ‘solidarity’. A close look at the wide spectrum of living beings reveals that, at all times and in all places, animals, plants, microorganisms and human beings have practised different forms of mutual aid. And those which survive difficult conditions best are not necessarily the strongest, but those which help each other the most. Pablo Servigne and Gauthier Chapelle explore a vast, forgotten continent of mutual aid in order to discover the mechanisms of this ‘other law of the jungle’. In so doing, they provide a more rounded view of the world of living things and give us some of the conceptual tools we need to move beyond the vicious circle of competition and self-destruction that is leading our civilization to the verge of collapse.

Группа авторов

Genetic Analysis of Complex Diseases An up-to-date and complete treatment of the strategies, designs and analysis methods for studying complex genetic disease in human beings In the newly revised Third Edition of Genetic Analysis of Complex Diseases , a team of distinguished geneticists delivers a comprehensive introduction to the most relevant strategies, designs and methods of analysis for the study of complex genetic disease in humans. The book focuses on concepts and designs, thereby offering readers a broad understanding of common problems and solutions in the field based on successful applications in the design and execution of genetic studies. This edited volume contains contributions from some of the leading voices in the area and presents new chapters on high-throughput genomic sequencing, copy-number variant analysis and epigenetic studies. Providing clear and easily referenced overviews of the considerations involved in genetic analysis of complex human genetic disease, including sampling, design, data collection, linkage and association studies and social, legal and ethical issues. Genetic Analysis of Complex Diseases also provides: A thorough introduction to study design for the identification of genes in complex traits Comprehensive explorations of basic concepts in genetics, disease phenotype definition and the determination of the genetic components of disease Practical discussions of modern bioinformatics tools for analysis of genetic data Reflecting on responsible conduct of research in genetic studies, as well as linkage analysis and data management New expanded chapter on complex genetic interactions This latest edition of Genetic Analysis of Complex Diseases is a must-read resource for molecular biologists, human geneticists, genetic epidemiologists and pharmaceutical researchers. It is also invaluable for graduate students taking courses in statistical genetics or genetic epidemiology.
