I want to add a book to the list that may be easier for you since it takes it from the perspective of Physics: Finkelstein & Ptitsyn, Protein Physics, Academic Press (2002). ISBN 0-12-256781-1. It covers structure, thermodynamical processes in proteins, mechanism of folding, function, a bit of bioinformatics. It is designed as a master level course in ...

Given your background (not a biologist or chemist) you would probably find the introductory material in a biochemistry "lite" textbook more accessible/useful than a hardcore text for specialists. As a co-author of a biochemistry textbook, I can tell you that there are essentially three different classes, or types of texts. Comprehensive textbooks, of ...

Here there are a couple that I own: The "classic" from Uri Alon touches many of the topics you mention. It is easy to read and goes relatively deep into the methods. There seems to be a new edition (if you search it in Amazon it will pop up), but it was planned for last year's April and then delayed so no so clear when will be actually published. For the ...

MIT Open Course Ware has a course on genetics, which uses the following text: "An Introduction to Genetic Analysis", Griffiths, Anthony J. F., Jeffrey H. Miller, David T. Suzuki, Richard C. Lewontin, and William M. Gelbart, 7th ed. New York: W. H. Freeman, 2000.

GENETICS: Analysis and Principles, 4th edition, Robert J. Booker This book is used in my school's ( NYU Poly) undergraduate genetics class.

The books you have The books you cited won't help you to get a solid and general basic knowledge in biology. I haven't read those books but I think that This is Biology is a book of philosophy of biology written by a biologist and philosopher. What is life is a very influential book written by a physicist who more or less predicted the structure of DNA that ...

The Coursera Introduction to Genetics and Evolution is an excellent MOOC. If I remember correctly it contains links chapters in the online version of Griffiths et al (i.e. deep links to this: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK21766/ ) There is also Introduction to Biology - The Secret of Life from EdX, it is not just genetics, it covers a lot of ...

Regeneration... What a lovely word since 2010 You could start with This text published on 2010 which shows how P21 and it's controller(P53 gene) could regulate regeneration of mammalians' body parts and within them is neurons too. Regeneration of a hole on ear of MRL mouse or p21 knockout one This event was accidentally observed ten years before the text ...

I work at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, one of the world's largest genomics centres. We do maintain a website for the public wanting to learn about genomics, but it might be a bit basic for you: YourGenome.org You can get into this field without going through grad school: learn at least one programming language (Python is probably the key one ...

As you said, the question is pretty broad. Genetics is a big gigantic field and it is quite hard to know what you are exactly looking for. If you could refine into one of the subfields (molecular genetics, population genetics, phylogenetics, etc..) it would be much easier to give you better advice. As you talk about both biology and bioinformatics, it might ...
