Qu’est-ce que la conscience ? Comment l’évaluer ? Ce livre se présente comme un guide complet sur l’état actuel de nos connaissances et des études sur la conscience. Il commence par l’histoire de la relation philosophique entre l’esprit et la matière, et explique les tentatives scientifiques pour expliquer la conscience en termes de mécanismes neuronaux, de calcul cérébral et de mécanique quantique.

Abraham’s Children: Race, Identity, and the DNA of the Chosen People by Jon Entine

Could our sense of who we are really turn on a sliver of DNA? In our multiethnic world, questions of individual identity are becoming increasingly unclear. Now in ABRAHAM’S CHILDREN bestselling author Jon Entine vividly brings to life the profound human implications of the Age of Genetics while illuminating one of today’s most controversial topics: the connection between genetics and who we are, and specifically the question “Who is a Jew?”
Entine weaves a fascinating narrative, using breakthroughs in genetic genealogy to reconstruct the Jewish biblical tradition of the chosen people and the hereditary Israelite priestly caste of Cohanim. Synagogues in the mountains of India and China and Catholic churches with a Jewish identity in New Mexico and Colorado provide different patterns of connection within the tangled history of the Jewish diaspora. Legendary accounts of the Hebrew lineage of Ethiopian tribesmen, the building of Africa’s Great Zimbabwe fortress, and even the so-called Lost Tribes are reexamined in light of advanced DNA technology. Entine also reveals the shared ancestry of Israelites and Christians.
As people from across the world discover their Israelite roots, their riveting stories unveil exciting new approaches to defining one’s identity. Not least, Entine addresses possible connections between DNA and Jewish intelligence and the controversial notion that Jews are a “race apart.” ABRAHAM’S CHILDREN is a compelling reinterpretation of biblical history and a challenging and exciting illustration of the promise and power of genetic research.

Short Views on Insect Genomics and Proteomics: Insect Proteomics, Vol.2 (Entomology in Focus) by Chandrasekar Raman

English | 18 Dec. 2015 | ISBN: 3319242423 | 251 Pages | EPUB | 2.89 MB

Entomology is a super science, embracing interdisciplinary approaches in genomics, proteomics, and interdependent fields of biochemistry, physiology, molecular entomology, and biotechnology. An urgent need to manage available resources for the benefit of the planet and humankind has led to remarkable progress since publication of the fruit fly genome in 2000. “Short Views on Insect Genomics and Proteomics” presents multiple perspectives of recognized experts from around the world in genomics, bioinformatics, molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, and immunology, emphasizing fast-moving areas of current research on insects and other arthropods. Concise, accessible, topical reviews include body lice and white fly genome projects, aphid phenotypic plasticity, insect regulatory genomics, the complex tick sialome, protein expression systems, therapeutic potential of insect antimicrobial peptides, nanoparticle insecticides, and novel uses for recombinant and synthetic spider silks.

Tumor Microenvironment: Study Protocols (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology) By Constantinos Koumenis, Lisa M. Coussens, Amato Giaccia

2016 | 308 Pages | ISBN: 3319266640 | PDF | 11 MB

This volume covers the topics presented at the 3rd International Conference on Tumor Microenvironment and Cellular Stress by an international community of researchers. The conference brings together scientists to discuss different cellular and animal models of tumor microenvironment study and identify common pathways that are candidates for therapeutic intervention; stimulate collaboration between groups that are more focused on elucidation of biochemical aspects of stress biology (e.g., HIF regulation) and groups that study the pathophysiological aspects of stress pathways or engaged in drug discovery; and critically evaluate novel targets for imaging or therapeutic intervention that would be of use to the tumor microenvironment community and pharmaceutical industry.
