Series: Advances in Genetics Research
BISAC: MED107000

“Advances in Genetics Research” presents original research results on the leading edge of genetics discovery. Each article has been carefully selected in an attempt to present substantial research results across a broad spectrum. In this continuing series compilation, the authors present and discuss mitochondrial gene diversity of the mega-herbivorous species of the genus Tapirus (tapiridae, perissodactyla) in South America and some insights on their genetics conservation, systematics and the pleistocene influence on their genetic characteristics; strategies for gene prospecting of plants in response to drought and salinity; clinical evidence and the genetic effects of traditional Chinese medicine for the management of proteinuria in patients with diabetic nephropathy; biochemistry and genetics of ansamycin antibiotics; BRCA gene mutations mediate particularly high TNBC risk by defective estrogen signaling; genotype-phenotype relationships in language processes in Rett syndrome; Marfan syndrome; Marfan syndrome and periodontitis; combined pectus correction and aortic valve sparing root replacement in Marfan patients; severe periodontitis in Marfan syndrome; and preimplantation genetic diagnosis for Marfan syndrome.
