Our genome is the blueprint to our existence: it encodes all the information we need to develop from a single cell into a hugely complicated functional organism. But it is more than a static information store: our genome is a dynamic, tightly-regulated collection of genes, which switch on and off in many combinations to give the variety of cells from which our bodies are formed. But how do we identify the genes that make up our genome? How do we determine their function? And how do different genes form the regulatory networks that direct the process of life?

Introduction to Genomics is a fascinating insight into what can be revealed from the study of genomics: how organisms differ or match; how different organisms evolved; how the genome is constructed and how it operates; and what our understanding of genomics means in terms of our future health and wellbeing.

Covering the lastest techniques that enable us to study the genome in ever-increasing detail, the book explores what the genome tells us about life at the level of the molecule, the cell, and the organism. Learning features throughout make this book the ideal teaching and learning tool: extensive end of chapter exercises and problems help the student to fully grasp the concepts being presented, while end of cahpter WebLems (web-based problems) and lab assignments give the student the opportunity to engage with the subject in a hands-on manner.

The field of genomics is enabling us to analyze life in more detail than ever before; Introduction to Genomics is the perfect guide to this enthralling subject.

About the Author:


Arthur Lesk is Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at The Pennsylvania State University, USA.

Review:

`This is an extraordinarily well-written book on genomics and related areas such as proteomics and systems biology. It is remarkable in its coverage of a very complex area. I was particularly impressed by the section on genomics which is well understood by the somewhat classical protein chemist.' Roger L. Lundblad in The Internet Journal of Genomics and Proteomics, July 2007

`Overall the author does an excellent job. Communicating the possibilities available in current biological research, uncovering the basis of life, to young scientists is essential if we are to realise the potential that genomics and systems biology promise. This book does very well, covering most of the bases in a straightforward and well-written manner. It is definitely good value and to be recommended for teaching introductory courses.' Dr Steve Russell in Bioessys, October 2007
