According to Gestalt thinking, biological systems cannot be viewed as the sum of their elements, but as processes of the whole. To understand organisms we must start from the whole, observing how the various parts are related. In genetics, we must observe the genome over and above the sum of its genes. Either loss or addition of one gene in a genome can change the function of the organism. Genomes are organized in networks of genes, which need to be well integrated. In the case of genetically…

The article discusses the main application areas of GMOs, the expansion of using GMOs in the world as well as the advantages and disadvantages of the implications of their usage.
APÞVALGINIS STRAIPSNIS Genetically modified organisms: do the benefits outweigh the risks?
Summary. The objective of this literature review is to analyze the implications of using genetically modified organisms (GMOs) as well as international and European position regarding such organisms.
The booklet "Genetically modified crops" published from the German Research Foundation, does not meet the given claim
It is concluded that the evaluation of GMO's in agriculture primarily from a crop breeding perspective is lacking crucial positions in terms of ecology, socio-economy, agronomy, nutritional sciences and finally ethics in life science.

Genetic control of flower morphogenesis in Arabidopsis thaliana: a logical analysis
A gene network involved in the control of the morphogenesis of flowers in a model plant, Arabidopsis thaliana, is analyzed and some general conclusions about the structure of gene networks controlling development are proposed.
An array of insights: application of DNA chip technology in the study of cell biology.
The advent of DNA microarray technology has ushered in an era of systems biology whereby researchers can study the transcriptional behavior of thousands of genes in parallel, and whole-transcriptome studies can be accomplished in yeast, flies and plants, and soon will be possible in mammals.
Impact of Genetic Manipulation on the Fitness of Anopheles stephensi Mosquitoes
Investigation of cage experiments with transgenic Anopheles stephensi indicates direct costs of the introduced transgene in at least three out of the four lines, as well as an apparent cost of the inbreeding involved in making transgenic homozygotes.

In all cases material progress will depend upon a deeper understanding of the underlying physiological and developmental control mechanisms and public confidence that due regard is being paid to animal welfare, and to social and environmental implications.
Linking the genes: inferring quantitative gene networks from microarray data.
A method to infer genetic networks on the basis of data from appropriately designed microarray experiments that also estimates the strength of such effects of genes that affect a specific other gene directly.
Send in the Clones ... Don't Bother, They're Here
It is necessary to separategenuine from spurious ethical issues here, a task made failure to initiate ethical discussion and explanation of new technology by fear reactions in society.
A psicologia da gestalt e a ciência empírica contemporânea
Although there has passed ninety years since Wertheimer's first thought to demonstrate through Gestalt explanation experimental psychology problems, the Gestalt holistic approach continues now-a-days
