Genetic Variation and Human Disease by Kenneth M. Weiss
Book DescriptionRecent developments in molecular and computational methods have made it possible to identify the genetic basis of any biological trait, and have led to spectacular advances in the study of human disease. This book provides an overview of the concepts and methods needed to understand the genetic basis of biological traits, including disease, in humans. Using examples of qualitative and quantitative phenotypes, Professor Weiss shows how genetic variation may be quantified, and how relationships between genotype and phenotype may be inferred. This book will appeal to many biologists and biological anthropologists interested in the genetic basis of biological traits, as well as to epidemiologists, biomedical scientists, human geneticists and molecular biologists.

Even after 150 years, Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection is irresistibly compelling. But, how can this idea - in which competition prevails - be consistent with all that we know about the thoroughly cooperative nature of life at the genetic and cellular level? This book reconciles these discrepancies.

By the end of the last century, it was known from microscopic studies that most cells contain small elongated bodies (mitochondria). It has recently been discovered that their true function is as complex organelles possessing inner and outer membranes and even their own DNA.
