Females Are Mosaics

Barbara Migeon, from the renowned McKusick-Nathan Institute at Johns Hopkins, is a major figure in clinical genetics and is eminently qualified to write this book, and she writes clearly and effectively.

Females Are Mosaics

Women can be described as genetic mosaics because they have two distinctly different types of cells throughout their bodies. Unlike males, who have one X chromosome (inherited from their mother), females have two X chromosomes in every cell (one from each parent). The fathers copy works in some cells, while the mothers copy works in others. These two X chromosomes often function differently, especially if one carries a defective gene. Much has been written about the Y chromosome and its role in inducing maleness. This will be the first book about the X chromosome as a key to female development and the role of X-related factors in the etiology of sex differences in human disease. Barbara Migeon, from the renowned McKusick-Nathan Institute at Johns Hopkins, is a major figure in clinical genetics and is eminently qualified to write this book, and she writes clearly and effectively. She describes both the underlying molecular mechanisms and the remarkable genetic consequences of X inactivation and its role in determining the biological concepts characteristic of women. Females are Mosaics will be valuable to geneticists, biologists, and all health professionals interested in women's health.

Gender Mosaic

This story seems to provide us with a neat biological explanation for much of what we encounter in day-to-day life. But is it true? According to neuroscientist Daphna Joel, it's not.

Gender Mosaic

With profound implications for our most foundational assumptions about gender, Gender Mosaic explains why there is no such thing as a male or female brain. For generations, we've been taught that women and men differ in profound and important ways. Women are more sensitive and emotional, whereas men are more aggressive and sexual, because this or that region in the brains of women is smaller or larger than in men, or because they have more or less of this or that hormone. This story seems to provide us with a neat biological explanation for much of what we encounter in day-to-day life. But is it true? According to neuroscientist Daphna Joel, it's not. And in Gender Mosaic, she sets forth a bold and compelling argument that debunks the notion of female and male brains. Drawing on the latest scientific evidence, including the groundbreaking results of her own studies, Dr. Joel explains that every human brain is a unique mixture -- or mosaic -- of "male" and "female" features, and that these mosaics don't map neatly into two categories. With urgent practical implications for the way we understand ourselves and the world around us, Gender Mosaic is a fascinating look at the science of gender, sex and the brain, and at how freeing ourselves from the gender binary can help us all reach our full human potential.

Pathology of the Human Placenta

Pathology of the Human Placenta has become the gold standard in the field for pathologists and obstetrician-gynecologists. Completely up-to-date, this fifth edition continues to be the essential reference for professionals in the field and includes many revised features such as a more detailed index; 700 total illustrations (350 color illustrations); and updated tables.

Medical Genetics

Because they have two populations of cells, females are mosaics (see Chapter 4) for X chromosome activity. Males, having only one copy of the X chromosome, are not mosaics but are hemizygous for the X chromosome (hemi means “half”).

Medical Genetics

Popular for its highly visual, clinical approach, Medical Genetics delivers an accessible yet thorough understanding of this active and fast-changing field.

"Gender mosaics reflects a sociological point of view on gender. It emphasizes both the social construction of gender in everyday interactions and gender as a stratification system built into social institutions. Through these readings, students come to see how gendered behavior results in a stratification system in which men and women wield unequal power and unequal opportunity for self-determination, both in personal relationships and in the social organizations of society"--Cover.
