Nature versus nurture in determining athletic ability.
This chapter provides an overview of the truism that both nature and nurture determine human athletic ability. The major thesis developed is that environmental effects work through the process of growth and development and interact with an individual's genetic background to produce a specific adult...
Missed appointments in a genetics and birth defects clinic.
I shall call Developmental Darwinism. The principal difference concerns the canonical unit of biological organization. Modern Synthesis replicator theory explains the process of evolution by appeal to the activities of genes or replicators. Developmental Darwinism explains the process of evolution b...
Genetics and sports: an overview of the pre-molecular biology era.
Estimated genetic and environmental contributions to individual differences in physical performance phenotypes, responsiveness to intermittent, aerobic and strength training, and specific skill training protocols are the focus of this chapter. Data are derived primarily from twin and family studies,...
Hemoprotein formation in yeast. VII. Genetic analysis of pleiotropic mutants affected in the response to glucose repression and anoxia.
Genetical analysis of three pleiotropic mutants with changed regulation of hemoprotein level was performed. It was proved that single recessive mutations cgr4, cas1 and cgh1 are responsible for simultaneous changes of catalase T, cytochrome c oxidase and of some other enzyme levels, in glucose repre...
Tuberculosis disease diagnosis using artificial neural network trained with genetic algorithm.
Tuberculosis is a common and often deadly infectious disease caused by mycobacterium; in humans it is mainly Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Wikipedia 2009). It is a great problem for most developing countries because of the low diagnosis and treatment opportunities. Tuberculosis has the highest mortalit...
