This book is about how your body works, and about the chemical reaction involved inside your body. Understanding the biology and the chemistry of your body may help you to understand how cancers grow and spread, and how treatments might affect you. In this book, biology will deal with the activities and characteristics of all organisms in human which fall into two major categories: reproduction metabolism. The mechanism of reproduction is now known to be controlled by the properties of certain large molecules called nucleic acids that transcribed the entire DNA helix at once into mRNA and also the cross selection between alleles(alleles control the same inherited characteristics) in both parents. The other major activity of the human’s living organisms is metabolism, the physical, chemical, and physiological processes by which energy and synthesis of proteins, hormones, and enzymes are used in such activities as reproduction (including growth), activities, and responsiveness to the environment, which also constitutes the activities of the nervous system. The nitrogen bases form the double-strand of DNA through weak hydrogen bond; have different shapes constituting adenosine, guanine thymine, and cytosine. Now that we’ve looked at the introduction, we should look at the structure of the chemical level that includes all chemical levels that includes alchemical substances necessary for life, Chapter 1. Chapter 2 deals with the physiology that deals with the internal working of living things, including functions such as metabolism, respiration, energy, and internal processes. Chapter 3 is the main core of the book that will discuss causes of cancers focusing on cellular oxidation and reduction due to excess donation or absorption of hydrogen. Avoidance of those elements such as Aluminum(Al), Silicon(Si), Phosphorus(P), Sulfur(S), Fluorine(F) and Chlorine(Cl) could reduce the risk of cancer due to the non-oxidative breakdown of certain substances.
This book is really helpful for someone who wants to start learning about genes and DNA. It is a well-written book describing all the introductory materials one would need to become current with genomes and genomics topics. It begins with an introduction to DNA and genes in chapter 1 and goes on from there through epigenetic in chapter 2, including acetylation, methylation, ubiquitylation of protein, deimination, and proline isomerization. It goes through gene editing in chapter 3, which includes good description of TALENs, ZFNs, and CRISPR/Cas systems. Chapter 4 includes cloning using artificial embryo twinning, somatic cell nuclear transfer, and asexual reproduction. Chapter 5 is about the material on basic stem cells of embryonic stem cells and adult stem cells. Chapter 6 discusses techniques and technology of gene therapy and cloning therapy. Chapter 7 includes descriptions on cell division, mitosis, meiosis, biological life cycle, parthenogenesis, bacterial conjugation, DNA fingerprints, genetic relationship between individuals and surname studies. The book includes many diagrams and a glossary and an index. For a serious book on DNA and genes, this book is quite readable. It is a user-friendly textbook so that many readers will find it helpful to read some chapters more than once. The book is a valuable introduction to the extremely important field of genes and genomics.
