Survival Analysis in Medicine and Genetics Book Excerpt:

Using real data sets throughout, Survival Analysis in Medicine and Genetics introduces the latest methods for analyzing high-dimensional survival data. It provides thorough coverage of recent statistical developments in the medical and genetics fields. The text mainly addresses special concerns of the survival model. After covering the fundamentals, it discusses interval censoring, nonparametric and semiparametric hazard regression, multivariate survival data analysis, the sub-distribution method for competing risks data, the cure rate model, and Bayesian inference methods. The authors then focus on time-dependent diagnostic medicine and high-dimensional genetic data analysis. Many of the methods are illustrated with clinical examples. Emphasizing the applications of survival analysis techniques in genetics, this book presents a statistical framework for burgeoning research in this area and offers a set of established approaches for statistical analysis. It reveals a new way of looking at how predictors are associated with censored survival time and extracts novel statistical genetic methods for censored survival time outcome from the vast amount of research results in genomics.

Clinical Genetics Made Ridiculously Simple Book Excerpt:

The burgeoning field of Genetics is a complex and formidable topic for the student and practitioner. It is easy to get lost in the forest for the trees since genetics lends itself anywhere from a basic foundation of DNA and its parts, to a more complicated and nuanced understanding of how these parts work together, what happens when things go wrong, how to diagnose and treat genetic disorders, and the latest advances and areas of hope in genetic research. Clinical Genetics Made Ridiculously Simple presents a way to rapidly visualize the field as a whole, including basic genetics, chromosomal abnormalities, epigenetic disorders, cancer, screening tests, gene sequencing, CRISPR, homeobox genes, and changing approaches to the clinical diagnosis and treatment of genetic conditions. The author builds from the basics of genetics and DNA, to an understanding of how our genetic material functions, what we presently know about genetic defects, and cutting edge solutions to these problems. Each topic is carefully taught, one step at a time, so that the student is never lost, all in 112 pages!

The Age of Genomes Book Excerpt:

A leading geneticist explores what promises to be one of the most transformative advances in health and medicine in history Almost every week, another exciting headline appears about new advances in the field of genetics. Genetic testing is experiencing the kind of exponential growth once seen with the birth of the Internet, while the plummeting cost of DNA sequencing makes it increasingly accessible for individuals and families. Steven Lipkin and Jon Luoma posit that today’s genomics is like the last century’s nuclear physics: a powerful tool for good if used correctly, but potentially dangerous nonetheless. DNA testing is likely the most exciting advance in a long time for treating serious disease, but sequencing errors, complex biology, and problems properly interpreting genetic data can also cause life-threatening misdiagnoses of patients with debilitating and fatal genetic diseases. DNA testing can also lead to unnecessary procedures and significantly higher health-care costs. And just around the corner is the ability to cure genetic diseases using powerful gene-editing technologies that are already being used in human embryo research. Welcome to the Age of Genomes! The Age of Genomes immerses readers in true stories of patients on the frontier of genomic medicine and explores both the transformative potential and risks of genetic technology. It will inform anxious parents increasingly bombarded by offers of costly new prenatal testing products, and demonstrate how genetic technology, when deployed properly, can significantly improve the lives of patients who have devastating neurological diseases, cancer, and other maladies. Dr. Lipkin explains the science in depth, but in terms a layperson can follow.

Genetics in Medicine Book Excerpt:

Genetics is fundamental to the basic sciences of preclinical medical education and has important applications to clinical medicine, public health, and medical research. With recognition of the role of genetics in medicine has come the problem of providing a place for it in the undergraduate curriculum, a problem which is as yet only partly solved in most medical schools. This book has been written to introduce the medical student to the principles of genetics as they apply to medicine, and to give him/her a background for independent reading of the extensive and rapidly growing literature in the field, and to indicate some of its fruitful clinical applications.

Advances in Genetics Book Excerpt:

Volume 32 of Advances in Genetics: Incorporating Molecular Genetic Medicine focuses on important and fast moving subjects in modern human genetics and medicine. This volume also marks the new collaboration with Associate Editors Dr. Theodore Friedmann and Dr. Francesco Giannelli. Chapter 1 considers the potential effectiveness and consequences of gene therapy on subjects over time. Chapter 2 discusses recent research on Gaucher's disease, the first disorder to demonstrate the clinical benefits of enzyme replacement therapy. Chapter 3 describes current findings on diabetes, a disease difficult to conquer due to its variety and its genetic and environmental causes. The major forms of hemophilia and the need for alternative therapies are discussed in Chapter 4. Chapter 5 presents hypercholesterolemia as a model for understanding the causes and treatments of human diseases on a molecular level. Chapter 6 probes the basic genetic defects behind phenylketonuria, as well as the possibilities for genetic correction. Chapter 7 covers the fascinating terminal structures of human chromosomes. In the Foreword to Volume 32, Drs. Friedmann and Giannelli suggest: "Progress toward a thorough characterization of the human genome is stunningly rapid and exceeding many of its earliest expectations. Disease-related genes will be falling from the skies faster than we can understand them, and mechanisms responsible for the pathogenesis of disease will be illuminated more quickly and readily than ever before. "With comprehensive and timely reviews, Advances in Genetics incorporating Molecular Genetic Medicine offers with every volume further insight into this expanding field of medicine, supplementing the continued expert coverage of all other areas of genetics pioneered by Advances in Genetics. Key Features * Presents technical and historical overviews of molecular biology applied to disease detection, diagnosis, and treatment * Chronicles the continuing explosion of knowledge in molecular genetic medicine by highlighting current approaches to understanding human illness * Documents the revolution in human and molecular genetics leading to a new field of medicine * Volume 32 marks new collaboration with Associate Editors Dr. Theodore Friedmann and Dr. Francesco Giannelli

The New Genetic Medicine Book Excerpt:

From dramatic advances in medical genetics and biotechnology, controversies have emerged in the application of these techniques over the control and design of living organisms. This book brings together the seminal essays of two Catholic moral theologians in an effort to identify the key ethical and theological questions raised by the new genetic technology. Roman Catholic tradition meets modern medicine in dialogue to bring issues of faith, science, and ethical decision making into perspective.
