We thank Richard Lansing and the staff at Humana for Some models have the advantage that the reproductive, guidance through the publication process. mitotic, development or aging cycles are rapid compared As this book was entering production, we learned of the with those in humans; others are utilized because individual loss of Tom Lanigan, Sr. Tom was a leader and innovator proteins may be studied in an advantageous way and that in scienti?c publishing and a good friend and colleague to have human homologs.

Feature:

Unique reflection of the diversity and utility of models used in biomedicine


Novel discussion of reproductive, mitotic, developmental or aging cycles in a range of organisms in comparison with humans


Insights on how some organisms that are able to grow in laboratory settings or lend themselves to convenient analyses have defined genomes or present especially good human models of human or animal disease


Uses a range of tables and figures to make comparisons of models so that observations not available in primary publications can become useful to the reader


Back cover:

The collection of systems represented in the Sourcebook of Models for Biomedical Research reflect the diversity and utility of models that are used in biomedicine. That utility is based on the consideration that observations made in particular organisms will provide insight into the workings of other, more complex systems. Some models have the advantage that the reproductive, mitotic, development or aging cycles are rapid compared with those in humans; others are utilized because individual proteins may be studied in an advantageous way and have human homologs. Other organisms are facile to grow in laboratory settings, lend themselves to convenient analyses, have defined genomes or present especially good human models of human or animal disease. The Sourcebook of Models for Biomedical Research is a comprehensive and extensive collection of these important medical parallels. While the entire book is not devoted to the remarkable success of the genomic programs, this work is well represented and indexed within these pages. This volume will be an invaluable resource for pharmaceutical and academic researchers across a wide range of biological fields.
