Mapping the Travel Behavior Genome covers the latest research on the biological, motivational, cognitive, situational, and dispositional factors that drive activity-travel behavior. Organized into three sections, Retrospective and Prospective Survey of Travel Behavior Research, New Research Methods and Findings, and Future Research, the chapters of this book provide evidence of progress made in the most recent years in four dimensions of the travel behavior genome. These dimensions are Substantive Problems, Theoretical and Conceptual Frameworks, Behavioral Measurement, and Behavioral Analysis. Including the movement of goods as well as the movement of people, the book shows how traveler values, norms, attitudes, perceptions, emotions, feelings, and constraints lead to observed behavior; how to design efficient infrastructure and services to meet tomorrow’s needs for accessibility and mobility; how to assess equity and distributional justice; and how to assess and implement policies for improving sustainability and quality of life. Mapping the Travel Behavior Genome examines the paradigm shift toward more dynamic, user-centric, demand-responsive transport services, including the "sharing economy," mobility as a service, automation, and robotics. This volume provides research directions to answer behavioral questions emerging from these upheavals. Offers a wide variety of approaches from leading travel behavior researchers from around the world Provides a complete map of the methods, skills, and knowledge needed to work in travel behavior Describes the state of the art in travel behavior research, providing key directions for future research

Innovative and smart mobility systems are expected to make transportation systems more sustainable, inclusive, and safe. Because of changing mobility paradigms, transport planning and design require different methodological approaches. Over twelve chapters, this book examines and analyzes Mobility as a Service (MaaS), travel behavior, traffic control, intelligent transportation system design, electric, connected, and automated vehicles, and much more.

The mapping of the genetic structure of human beings is one of the most ambitious attempts by Western scientists to understand life. Advances in technology have made it possible to manipulate biological structures and have been beneficial in the fight against such diseases as Huntington's and Parkinson's. Advances in gene technology also raise the possibility of redesigning ourselves and our children. In Mapping the Human Genome Theodore C. Kent examines this new field of genetic engineering and addresses the troubling questions about nature and the morality that it brings. Kent warns that while gene technology offers terrific opportunities, it also raises questions that science cannot and should not answer alone. Kent explores the moral and ethical dilemmas we face as it becomes possible to change ourselves and our children. This book looks at the future of humankind and examines aspects of reality and morality, the human genome, and human potentiality. Kent provides a new way of looking at the world and meeting the challenges of the coming Age of the Genome.

Genome analysis and genomics are at the forefront of current research in the life sciences. Since the first edition of Principles of Genome Analysis was published, the sequencing of genomes has continued apace, with the major landmark of the human genome sequence being achieved in 2001. Now the emphasis of biological research is on genomics: the understanding of gene function and the interaction of gene products at the whole genome level. As before, this book provides a step-by-step outline of the techniques involved in genome mapping and sequencing. Additionally, the text has been greatly expanded to cover sub-disciplines of genomics, revisions of sections on genome sequencing and bioinformatics, and new chapters on comparative genomics, functional genomics and proteomics. The book concludes with an exciting new chapter describing a variety of ways to utilize genome analysis and sequencing in biology, medicine and agriculture. Aimed at advanced undergraduates, this text will follow the same format as the highly successful Principles of Gene Manipulation by Primrose, Twyman and Old, now in its sixth edition.
