Because of BookBub I get notified of a lot of book deals. For example, The Roman Empire and the Silk Routes: The Ancient World Economy and the Empires of Parthia, Central Asia and Han China is now $1.30 on Kindle.This is like when The Shape of Ancient Thought was steeply discounted a few years ago. The prices go up and down. But definitely a boon to any nerd.
One of the stranger call-ins on my interview with Kathleen Dunn last month was when a woman who proudly declared that she was a math major in college asserted that 23andMe had told her she wasn ...
Gene expression - Wikipedia
Gene expression is the process by which information from a gene is used in the synthesis of a functional gene product.These products are often proteins, but in non-protein coding genes such as transfer RNA (tRNA) or small nuclear RNA (snRNA) genes, the product is a functional RNA.. The process of gene expression is used by all known life—eukaryotes (including multicellular organisms ...
Gene expression profiling in cancer - Wikipedia
Cancer is a disease characterized by uncontrolled cell growth and proliferation. For cancer to develop, genes regulating cell growth and differentiation must be altered; these mutations are then maintained through subsequent cell divisions and are thus present in all cancerous cells. Gene expression profiling is a technique used in molecular biology to query the expression of thousands of ...

C-reactive protein (CRP) a protein that is produced in the liver in response to inflammation.CRP is a biomarker of inflammation that is strongly associated with the risk of cardiovascular events, such as myocardial infarction and stroke. Calcification the process of deposition of calcium salts. In the formation of bone this is a normal condition.

Control of Gene Expression
Introduction. The controls that act on gene expression (i.e., the ability of a gene to produce a biologically active protein) are much more complex in eukaryotes than in prokaryotes.
