Principles of Genetics 7th Edition

The science of genetics has been evolving rapidly. The DNA of genomes, even large ones, can now be analyzed in great detail; the functions of individual genes can be studied with an impressive array of techniques; and organisms can be changed genetically by introducing alien or altered genes into their genomes. The ways of teaching […]

USMLE Step 1 Lecture Notes 2018 7-Book Set (Kaplan Test Prep)

INDIFFERENT GONAD Although sex is determined at fertilization, the gonads initially go through an indifferent stage weeks 4–7 when there are no specific ovarian or testicular characteristics. The indifferent gonads develop in a longitudinal elevation or ridge of intermediate mesoderm called the urogenital ridge. The components of the indifferent gonads are as follows: •Primordial germ […]

Conductors, Semiconductors, Superconductors: An Introduction to Solid State Physics

Conductors, Semiconductors, Superconductors An Introduction to Solid State Physics

Abstract The lattice structure of crystals is characterized by specific symmetry properties. Translation symmetry yields the 14 Bravais lattices. Rotation, reflection at a mirror plane, and inversion at a point result in the 32 crystallographic point groups. The diffraction of X-rays by a crystal, initiated in 1912 by Max von Laue, represented the first experimental […]
