A DNA Test from a Genealogy company was an unexpected gift and may just lead to her death. Life is unpredictable and full of surprise for Delta, whose mother is a prostitute and drug addict. Her father is unknown. Somehow she overcomes disastrous foster care placements and sexual abuse and is able to prosper in the worst of environments. Then her mother dies of a drug overdose when she is 15 and now she is truly alone. A high achiever in school without any support but fate had more in store for her. She is alone so alone that she asks a truck driver who is a total stranger to lie and become her guardian to prevent her from going back in foster care. Surprise, it works and with her guardian's support she achieves all her goals. She completes a biochemical engineering degree on the way to become a medical researcher committed to solving the issue of drug dependence. Accepted at prestigious medical schools she has the world under control, or at least she thinks so. Then-She takes that simple DNA test promoted by an ancestor genealogy site and her world is forever changed. She may find a father she never wanted but at the same time she may be killed for finding him. The few people she loves are now in danger of being hurt or killed because they know her story. Is her father trying to kill her? If not her father, who would want to end her life and why? Just who will save Delta? The truth is in her genes.

Description :


Provides a broad snapshot of recent findings showing how the environment and genes influence behavior The great debate of nature versus nurture rages on — but our understanding of the genetic basis of many behaviors has expanded over the last decade, and there is now very good evidence showing that seemingly complex behaviours can have relatively simple genetic underpinnings, but also that most behaviours have very complicated genetic and environmental architecture. Studies have also clearly shown that behaviors, and other traits, are influenced not just by genes and the environment, but also by the statistical interaction between the two. This book aims to end the nature versus nurture argument by showing that behaviors are nature and nurture and the interaction between the two, and by illustrating how single genes can explain some of the variation in behaviors even when they are seemingly complex. Genes and Behaviour: Beyond Nature-Nurture puts to rest the nature versus nurture dichotomy, providing an up-to-date synopsis of where we are, how far we've come and where we are headed. It considers the effects of a dual-inheritance of genes and culture, and genes and social environment, and highlights how indirect genetic effects can affect the evolution of behavior. It also examines the effect of non-self genes on the behavior of hosts, shines a light on the nature and nurturing of animal minds and invites us to embrace all the complexity nature and nurture generates, and more. Explores exciting new findings about behavior and where we go from here Features contributions by top scholars of the subject Seeks to end the nature versus nurture debate forever Genes and Behaviour: Beyond Nature-Nurture is a unique, and eye-opening read that will appeal to Ph.D. Students, post-doctoral fellows, and researchers in evolution and behavior. Additionally, the book will also be of interest to geneticists, sociologists and philosophers.

Description :


A deeply reported look at home genetic testing and the seismic shock it has had on our culture and on individual lives You swab your cheek or spit in a vial, then send it away to a lab somewhere. Weeks later you get a report that might tell you where your ancestors came from or if you carry certain genetic risks. Or, the report could reveal a long-buried family secret that upends your entire sense of identity. Soon a lark becomes an obsession, a relentless drive to find answers to questions at the core of your being, like “Who am I?” and “Where did I come from?” Welcome to the age of home genetic testing. In The Lost Family, journalist Libby Copeland investigates what happens when we embark on a vast social experiment with little understanding of the ramifications. She explores the culture of genealogy buffs, the science of DNA, and the business of companies like Ancestry and 23andMe, all while tracing the story of one woman, her unusual results, and a relentless methodical drive for answers that becomes a thoroughly modern genetic detective story. Gripping and masterfully told, The Lost Family is a spectacular book on a big, timely subject.

Description :


Professor Robert Plomin, the world’s leading geneticist, said in 2014 of his search for genes that explain differences in our psychology: ‘I have been looking for these genes for fifteen years. I don’t have any’. Using a mixture of famous and ordinary people, Oliver James drills deep down into the childhood causes of our individuality, revealing why our upbringing, not our genes, plays such an important role in our wellbeing and success. The implications are huge: as adults we can change, we can clutch our fates from predetermined destiny, as parents we can radically alter the trajectory of our childrens’ lives, and as a society we could largely eradicate criminality and poverty. Not in Your Genes will not only change the way you think about yourself and the people around you, but give you the fuel to change your personality and your life for the better.

Description :


Genetic Destinies opens with the stories of the lives of two women; gene science causes the life of one to be free of suffering but fills that of the other with discrimination and oppression. The two imaginary future lives encompass the very best and the very worst of our hopes for genescience, and understanding what is reality and what is myth, what is possible and what impossible, is the key to unlocking the reality of this feared science.In the chapters that follow, the reality of the power of gene science is laid out using simple, non-technical terms to present the very edge of the knowledge that we possess, exploring the role genes play in rigidly defining the overall plan of our bodies and then subtly influencing ourindividuality, intelligence, behaviour, personality, and health. Genes are often minor players in our lives because the differences that distinguish us are tiny compared to the similarities we share; it follows that our futures are in our own hands as much as in the hands of our genes.Nevertheless, understanding the delicate influences that gene differences play in our lives is central to our thinking about ourselves, and it is in the interplay of genes and lifestyle that our personalities and individual futures can be found.The genetic differences we each possess contain a record of the very origins of human beings and it is remarkable that our present day fates are influenced by patterns of ancient human history.Armed with this knowledge, Genetic Destinies ends by revisiting the stories of the lives of the two women and shows that the fears we have of gene science are based upon misplaced ideas of the power of genes. The reality is that our true Genetic Destiny is to live our lives as human beings, unique,unpredictable, and irreplaceable in all of history and all of future time: a wonderful prospect.

A mysterious phone call leads to a clandestine meeting with a stranger. It changed Mona and her daughters' lives forever. Mona should have sensed something was different about her husband's family. They owned the largest waste collection business in New England, but it was the other businesses they were involved in that she didn't pay attention to. When her father-in-law was gunned down outside a restaurant, she learned the whole truth but still made no changes in her life. She learned through a stranger that her husband was dead. With new identities, she was told to take her children and run for their lives. Only the strong resolve of a mother protecting her children could survive this situation. Arriving in a small northern Michigan town was the first of many challenges for the family. The children weren't happy with the rural surroundings and Mona felt isolated and alone. Soon the warmth of the town provided the entire family with a sense of community they had never experienced before. Establishing a new life while worrying about being targets of the mob was her challenge. She didn't have a clue who was out to kill her and for all she knew it might even be the stranger that helped her run. The new friends she made could provide support but would it be enough to protect her, the children or her new friends from future dangers. She had no alternative but to trust a man with the truth. A local conservation officer becomes one person willing to stand between her and the killers. Could he save her or for that matter cold he save himself.

Description :


The book begins by introducing the reader to a fantastic possibility - that humanity may be on the verge of a major shift in consciousness rooted in a new understanding of how our DNA operates - namely that it is programmed directly by the way we think and feel. This is a highly ambitious and sophisticated system for shaping one's destiny. Based around 64 archetypes, it resembles the I Ching in its vast scope and profound importance, and in the resonant character of its symbolism. The author shows how there are two ways to approach the Gene Keys - the analogue (holistic) way and the digital (detailed) way. It is the combining of both analogue and digital that results in contemplation - the primary pathway into the Gene Keys. Since our beliefs shape our genes, when we change our beliefs, we change the chemistry of our body. The Gene Keys are an inner language whose central purpose is to transform our core beliefs about ourselves, thus raising our lives onto a new level of awareness. The book works alongside state-of-the-art online profiling software. This software will provide instantaneous free profiles known as 'Hologenetic Profiles', which uses astrological data (time, date and place of birth) to generate a unique sequence of Gene Keys that relate to many aspects of your life, including the underlying genetic patterns governing your relationships, your finances, your health and your life purpose. As the reader contemplates the 64 Gene Keys over time and applies their insights in his or her own life, so one's belief system will begin to change and our DNA will actually start to transform the way we think and feel.
