Human Molecular Genetics Strachan Pdfl

Human Molecular Genetics has been carefully crafted over successive editions to provide an authoritative introduction to the molecular aspects of human genetics, genomics and cell biology.Maintaining the features that have made previous editions so popular, this fifth edition has been completely updated in line with the latest developments in the field. Older technologies such as cloning and hybridization have been merged and summarized, coverage of newer DNA sequencing technologies has been expanded, and powerful new gene editing and single-cell genomics technologies have been added. The coverage of GWAS, functional genomics, stem cells, and disease modeling has been expanded. Greater focus is given to inheritance and variation in the context of populations and on the role of epigenetics in gene regulation.

An example of a clear and precise scientific definition of "cloning", and one which refutes both the Weissman-type and Weldon/Brownback-type political "science", can be found in this human molecular genetics text by Strachan and Read:

None of the accurate science that I am about to present is my subjective "opinion" or "misreading" of that science; nor is it "prolife", "religious", or even "Catholic" science. Rather I will present only those secular objective scientific facts in concert with the long-acknowledged internationally recognized nomenclature in human embryology and human molecular genetics, which anyone involved in these human cloning issues is morally and professionally - and preferably legally -- bound to acknowledge.2 These accurate scientific facts can be found by anyone in the appropriate human embryology science texts in the local library. There is no "confusion". N-O-N-E.

For more historical information on the development of these international standards, see, e.g., article on Wilhelm Hiss, at: See also international experts in human molecular genetics: Tom Strachan and Andrew P. Read, Human Molecular Genetics 2 (2nd ed.) (New York: John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 1999). [Back]
