The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals

The most well-liked of Darwin's books in the course of his lifetime, in a fantastically illustrated new edition

that includes dozens of pictures from Darwin's unique e-book, this edition-issued to commemorate the 2 hundredth anniversary of Darwin's birth-makes this vintage examine newly available to fashionable readers. released in 1872, The Expression of the feelings in guy and Animals used to be a publication on the very center of Darwin's learn pursuits. Darwin's major objective was once to illustrate the facility of his theories for explaining the foundation of our such a lot adored human traits, morality and mind. The paintings engages a few of the toughest questions within the evolution debate, and it exhibits the ever-cautious Darwin at his boldest.

Example text

If a particular gene is found on one copy of a chromosome, it is also found on the other homolog. However, the two homologs may carry different versions of a given gene, which are called alleles. In Chapter 3, we will examine how some alleles are dominant, which mask the expression of alleles that are recessive. As an example, let’s consider a gene in humans, called OCA2, which is one of a few different genes that affect eye color. The OCA2 gene is located on chromosome 15 and comes in alleles that result in brown, green, or blue eyes.

As you progress through the experiments in this book, you will enjoy genetics far more if you try to develop your own skills at formulating hypotheses, designing experiments, and interpreting data. Also, some of the questions in the problem sets are aimed at refining these skills. Finally, it is worthwhile to point out that science is a social discipline. As you develop your skills at scrutinizing experiments, it is fun to discuss your ideas with other people, including fellow students and faculty members.

Furthermore, the genes found in model organisms often function in a similar way to those found in humans. The study of genetics has been traditionally divided into three areas—transmission, molecular, and population genetics—although overlap is found among these three fields. In this section, we will examine the general questions that scientists in these areas are attempting to answer. 3 μm (a) Escherichia coli 13 (b) Saccharomyces cerevisiae (c) Drosophila melanogaster (e) Danio rerio (f) Mus musculus 133 μm (d) Caenorhabditis elegans F IG U R E 1 .
