editore: EGEA

pagine: 105

Quindici anni fa per ottenere la sequenza del genoma umano occorrevano quasi 100 milioni di dollari: oggi ne bastano 1000. La riduzione esponenziale dei costi è il risultato positivo di una progressiva convergenza tra scienze della vita e informatica, tra fisica e ingegneria. Questa evoluzione va ora a toccare la ricerca medica in modi inaspettati: l'effetto della digitalizzazione e personalizzazione è dirompente anche in tema di salute, con lo sfruttamento dei big data e le capacità di calcolo dei moderni computer. Empowered patient, remote care, robot che migliorano interventi e protesi, sensori e stampa 3D, intelligenza artificiale applicata alle decisioni mediche: è la grande rivoluzione delle scienze della vita, che migliorerà la nostra esistenza, allungandone la durata.

Biologia molecolare. Principi di funzionamento del genoma

a cura di S. Barabino, R. Favilla

editore: Pearson

pagine: 795

Questo libro propone un nuovo e originale approccio all'insegnamento della biologia molecolare. Le autrici lo hanno concepito partendo dal presupposto che, per comprendere i concetti fondamentali di questa disciplina e la sua affascinante complessità, non è necessario approfondire ogni singolo dettaglio quanto piuttosto comprendere i principi chimici e fisici che sono alla base dei processi biologici. La successione dei capitoli segue un preciso filo logico e presenta un insieme bilanciato di informazioni su organismi procariotici ed eucariotici. Le sezioni all'interno dei singoli capitoli sono strutturate in funzione dei concetti chiave del soggetto trattato, fornendo in questo modo una mappa concettuale di grande valore didattico. Riconoscendo l'estrema importanza delle evidenze sperimentali nella comprensione della biologia molecolare, le autrici hanno arricchito il testo con numerosi inserti, denominati "Approcci sperimentali", nei quali vengono descritti gli esperimenti chiave che hanno permesso la comprensione di importanti aspetti della biologia molecolare. Particolarmente utili sono anche i riferimenti a modelli molecolari presenti nel testo, attraverso i quali è possibile visualizzare in modo interattivo la struttura delle proteine e degli acidi nucleici raffigurati.
