DNA repair and mutagenesis by Errol C Friedberg( )

39 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 1,762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Completely reorganized, the new edition presents a significant overhaul of the existing chapters and introduces important new material, reflective of the major changes and developments that have occurred in the field over the last decade. As with the first edition, this new volume presents the field within a strong historical framework and all aspects of biological responses to DNA damage are detailed. The book consists of 30 chapters divided into five main parts, covering: sources and consequences of DNA damage; correcting altered bases in DNA: DNA repair; DNA damage tolerance and mutagenesis; regulatory responses to DNA damage in eukaryotes; and disease states associated with defective biological responses to DNA damage. Basic principles are appropriately stressed; however, the book focuses on the significant progress to date and future research directions

A biography of Paul Berg : the recombinant DNA controversy revisited by Errol C Friedberg( )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,056 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a Foreword by Sydney Brenner (Nobel laureate in Physiology or Medicine, 2002). This biography details the life of Paul Berg (Emeritus Professor at Stanford University), tracing Berg's life from birth, in 1926, to the present, with special emphasis on his enormous scientific contributions, including being the first to develop technology that led to gene cloning science. In 1980, Berg received a Nobel Prize in chemistry for this work. In addition to his contributions in the research laboratory, Berg orchestrated and oversaw a historic meeting at Asilomar, California that centered on a threatening controversy surrounding the perception by some of the harmful potential of recombinant DNA technology. This meeting did much to forestall this controversy and to put in place the regulation of recombinant DNA work, thus putting fears to rest. The recombinant DNA controversy was a historic outcome of the discovery of gene cloning. Notably, it represented a paramount example of scientific foresight and due diligence by the scientific community, rather than by regulatory entities in the United States and many other countries. The ultimate acceptance of gene/DNA cloning led to a new era of modern biology that thrives to the present. This book is aimed primarily at scientists and those in training. The book strives to simply provide information for the general reader, but is not specifically tailored for a general reading audience. While many books cover the recombinant DNA controversy, none have satisfactorily addressed this historic period and are often contradictory about the many who's, where's, and why's involved. Additionally, the great majority of these were written by non-scientists. This biography of Paul Berg provides access to numerous archived letters and documents at Stanford University not previously addressed, and to the chronology of events as recalled and documented by him, as well as other key personalities, many of whom were interviewed

The writing life of James D. Watson by Errol C Friedberg( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Japanese and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Watson's autobiographical account of the discovery of the structure of DNA, The Double Helix, scandalously portrayed science and scientists as never before. Yet millions of the readers of Watson's most famous book are unaware that he has spent a lifetime inventing new forms and styles of writing about science. His textbooks have changed the way biology is taught." "This book, by the scientist and historian Errol Friedberg, is the first to examine the full scope of Jim Watson's writing achievements. It draws extensively on studies of Watson's work, interviews with his co-authors and publishers, access to his personal archives, and conversations with Watson himself, although this is in no sense an "authorized account.""--Jacket

DNA repair mechanisms : [proceedings] by Philip C Hanawalt( Book )

13 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

DNA Repair Mechanisms is an account of the proceedings at a major international conference on DNA Repair Mechanisms held at Keystone, Colorado on February 1978. The conference discusses through plenary sessions the overall standpoint of DNA repair. The papers presented and other important documents, such as short summaries by the workshop session conveners, comprise this book. The compilation describes the opposing views, those that agree and dispute about certain topic areas. This book, divided into 15 parts, is arranged according to the proceedings in the conference. The plenary sessions are

Learning about your genes : a primer for non-biologists by Errol C Friedberg( Book )

9 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Genes were unknowingly discovered in the 19th century by Gregor Mendel, a Czechoslovakian monk. It was later established that genes are made of DNA, a biological compound found in tiny thread-like structures called chromosomes that are located in the nuclei of all cells in our bodies. DNA consists of chains of entities called bases of which there are four in nature. DNA consists of long chains of bases (sometimes referred to as DNA sequences) that are joined in any order, but the precise order and length of which constitute different genes. Many (but not all) genes carry a code called the genetic code, a code that instructs the synthesis (manufacture) of the many hundreds of proteins that we require to survive and execute the many functions of life. The genetic code was deciphered in relatively recent years and is considered one of the most significant discoveries in the history of biology. Genes that encode instructions for the synthesis of proteins and those that regulate the manufacture of proteins comprise a mere two percent of our DNA. Despite our extensive knowledge of biology and the sub-discipline of molecular biology (the study of biology at the molecular level), the function (if any) of the rest of the DNA in our cells is unknown. Research about genes and DNA has in recent years spawned an endeavor referred to as the Human Genome Project, an international collaboration that has successfully determined, stored, and rendered publicly available the sequences of almost all the genetic content of the chromosomes of the human organism, otherwise known as the human genome. DNA sequences that are unique to every person on earth have been discovered (DNA fingerprints) and are now used for identifying criminals. The book relates a specific example of identifying a criminal who murdered two women. This is the first and only book that we are aware of that educates non-biologists about genes. It is written in a style and uses a vocabulary that can be comprehended by the average reader who knows very little if anything about genes."--Back cover

DNA repair, mutagenesis, and other responses to DNA damage : a subject collection from Cold Spring Harbor perspectives in biology( Book )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cellular DNA is constantly bombarded with environmental and chemical assaults that damage its molecular structure. In addition, the normal process of DNA replication is prone to error and may introduce mutations that can be passed to daughter cells. If left unrepaired, these DNA lesions can have serious consequences, such as cancer. Written and edited by experts in the field, this collection from Cold Spring Harbor Perspectives in Biology reviews the mechanisms that cells use to recognize and repair various types of DNA damage. Contributors discuss base excision repair, nucleotide excision repair, mismatch repair, homologous recombination, nonhomologous end joining, the SOS response, and other pathways in prokaryotes and eukaryotes, and describe how these processes are linked to DNA replication, transcription, and cell cycle controls. The repair of telomeric and mitochondrial DNA is described, as is the influence of chromatin structure on DNA repair. This volume also includes discussion of human genetic diseases that involve defects in DNA damage repair. It is an essential reference for molecular and cell biologists, medical geneticists, cancer biologists, and all who want to understand how cells maintain genomic integrity
