Genomic management of animal genetic diversity Book Review:

Recently developed genomic tools, like SNP-genotyping and whole genome sequencing, and their analysis, offer great opportunities for the conservation and utilisation of animal genetic diversity, both among and within breeds. These genomic tools can be used to detect potentially valuable rare alleles and haplotypes. They are important parts of the genetic diversity we need to conserve now for possible utilisation in the future. This book describes the use of genomic technology to define breeds, to measure diversity and to assess important features in the history of breeds affecting the present genetic diversity. The management of genetic diversity with genomic tools is outlined both in vivo: small populations of rare breeds or large populations with small effective population sizes and in vitro: genebanks. Special attention is given to the genomic management of populations of animals with high incidences of genetic defects. This book is intended for MSc and PhD students, scientists working with small populations in animal breeding and in conservation programmes for rare breeds.

Managing Disruptive Change in Healthcare Book Review:

Healthcare faces unprecedented global challenges. Rapid advances in genomics, computational sciences, and technology -- as well as the new focus on value-based care and an increased trend toward healthcare commercialization -- represent disruptive changes to an already-fragmented delivery system. The healthcare establishment has been slow to adapt, and now faces rising cancer-care costs and lags in outcome improvement and genomically informed interventions. Managing Disruptive Change in Healthcare codifies the US National Cancer Institute's lessons from utilizing a public-private partnership with community hospitals to navigate the change needed to increase patient access to high-quality cancer care, and enhance hospitals' capacity to conduct and support research initiatives. The treatment of complex diseases requires a delivery system capable of translating scientific advances into care that is coordinated across the full continuum; this book offers a blueprint to just such an infrastructure.

Genes Behavior and the Social Environment Book Review:

Over the past century, we have made great strides in reducing rates of disease and enhancing people's general health. Public health measures such as sanitation, improved hygiene, and vaccines; reduced hazards in the workplace; new drugs and clinical procedures; and, more recently, a growing understanding of the human genome have each played a role in extending the duration and raising the quality of human life. But research conducted over the past few decades shows us that this progress, much of which was based on investigating one causative factor at a time—often, through a single discipline or by a narrow range of practitioners—can only go so far. Genes, Behavior, and the Social Environment examines a number of well-described gene-environment interactions, reviews the state of the science in researching such interactions, and recommends priorities not only for research itself but also for its workforce, resource, and infrastructural needs.
