Genes VI by Benjamin Lewin( Book )

37 editions published between 1983 and 2002 in 5 languages and held by 995 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Genes VI gives an integrated account of the structure and function of genes in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms. It is thoroughly up to date with the latest thinking and research in the field. Succesive editions have provided an integrated account of the whole field of modern molecular genetics and this edition continues that approach, providing a new synthesis and continuing the greater emphasis, first seen in Genes V, on how genes function in their biological context."--Back cover
Genes VII by Benjamin Lewin( Book )

33 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Genes VII, the latest edition of this textbook, covers the material that is at the heart of current courses in molecular biology, genetics, cell biology, and related disciplines. In a change to the approach of all previous editions, which started with a traditional analysis of formal genetics, the seventh edition presents the subject in the context of the eukaryotic gene as revealed in the last decade, an analysis based directly on the molecular properties of the gene itself. The new approach has made the book more concise and a new design presents the material in a refreshingly clear manner." "Genes VII gives an integrated account of the structure and function of genes in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms."--Jacket
Genes IV by Benjamin Lewin( Book )

25 editions published between 1990 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is larger by about 100 pages and 4 chapters than the preceding edition, Genes III (1987); each page contains more print, so the increase in size is a further reflection of the explosion of information in molecular biology. Again, the text is produced on a short revision cycle (1983, 1985, 1987, 1990). Some rearrangement of chapters and parts generates a clear narrative on the status of genes and their expression. A check of putative frontier areas (zinc fingers, leucine zippers, enzymology of eukaryotic expression, etc.) shows that these topics are considered. No mention of sequencing the human genome appears. Systematic reading requires concentration. Each chapter contains a summary and a bibliography; often, the bibliography is subdivided into reviews, research articles, and articles about original discoveries. The last two parts ("The Dynamic Genome: DNA in Flux"; "Genes in Development") are the consummate syntheses, building upon the wealth and detail about gene expression and regulation established previously. Part 8 takes up recombination, transposons that mobilize via DNA, retroviruses and retroposons, and engineering changes in the genome (including transgenic mice and P elements in Drosophila). Part 9 considers generation of immune diversity, regulation by gene rearrangement, gradients and cascades in development (mainly Drosophila systems), and mitogens and cancer. This series continues to be important for upper-division undergraduates and beginning graduate students in the biological/chemical sciences. -T. A. Cole, Wabash College--Choice Review

Lewin's genes X by Jocelyn E Krebs( Book )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fields of molecular biology and molecular genetics are rapidly changing with new data acquired daily, and new insights into well-studied processes presented on a scale of weeks or months rather than years. For decades Lewin's GENES has provided the teaching community with the most cutting edge presentation of molecular biology and molecular genetics, covering gene structure, sequencing, organization, and expression. The latest edition, with a new author team, has enlisted 21 subject-matter experts, from top institutions, to provide revisions and content updates in their individual fields of expertise, ensuring that Lewin's GENES X is the most current and comprehensive text in the field. Informative new chapters, as well as a reorganization of material, provide the most logical flow of topics. Lewin's GENES X also contains new pedagogical features to help students learn as they read and an online student study guide allows students to test themselves on key material."--Jacket

Wine myths and reality by Benjamin Lewin( Book )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is wine an artisanal creation or industrial product? Extensively illustrated with photographs, maps, and charts, Wine myths and reality goes behind the scenes of winemaking to reveal the truth about what goes into a bottle of wine. From monks treading grapes in the middle ages to the latest research into grapevine DNA, this book presents an authoritative account of how wine is really made. Practices in viticulture and vinification come under the microscope, the tricks of the wine trade are revealed, the methods of the new and the old worlds are scrutinized, and their wines are discussed. Provides an overview of all major wine-producing countries extends from the powerful wines of the new world to the classic wines of France or Italy and addresses important questions: Does terroir really matter? Is the international style taking over? Will global warming destroy the existing wine-producing regions? And extrapolating from current trends, what will wine be like in the next decade?
