Features

  • This fully updated and restructured new edition, which includes two new chapters, takes account of new developments and technologies, presenting a logical and coherent overview of genome science today.
  • The author's widely-praised writing style leads the reader through a conceptually challenging subject in a clear, lucid way, building confidence in, and enthusiasm for, the subject at the outset.
  • Broad and fascinating range of 'real world' examples, which are also relevant across genetics modules more widely.
  • New 'looking forward' feature making the links between each chapter explicit and helping students connect seemingly different topics.
  • Extensive learning tools throughout - most notably the exercises, problems and online weblems accompanying each chapter - encourage and support self-directed learning, helping the student to master the subject.
  • An Online Resource Centre featuring an extensive range of resources for both lecturers and students, enhancing the value of the book as a teaching and learning tool.


New to this edition
  • Two new chapters focused on human genomics, health and disease with particular emphasis on the concrete outcomes of the human genome project and advances in cancer genomics.
  • A comprehensive introductory chapter that 'sets the scene' for new students of genomics.
  • A new feature that links the topics covered in each chapter.
  • New and updated chapter exercises, problems and weblems.
  • Highlighted key terms are collated in a glossary at the end of the book.

Review

This book is great for introducing the field of genomics, providing the basic concepts underpinning the field, including cutting edge techniques, along with examples of its application. - Dr Emma Laing, University of Surrey

The writing is eloquent and engages the curious reader with a wide range of background stories. The practical applications are always highlighted. Rather than a text book studied to pass an exam, this book is a pleasure to read. - Dr Richard Bingham, University of Huddersfield

It's the best textbook that I have reviewed for upper level undergraduates. It has good basic coverage of human aspects, databases, and comparative genomics. I like the questions and problems at the end of the chapters. - Professor Michael Shiaris, University of Massachusetts Boston
