9780470777817: Analysis of Genes and Genomes

This beautifully illustrated textbook provides a clear guide to the tools and techniques of genetic engineering, gene cloning and molecular biology. All aspects of genetic engineering in the post-genomic era are covered, beginning with the basics of DNA structure and DNA metabolism. Using an example-driven approach, the fundamentals of creating mutations in DNA, cloning in bacteria, yeast, plants and animals are all clearly presented.

Strong emphasis is placed on the latest, post genomic technologies including DNA macro and microarrays, genome-wide two hybrid analysis, proteomics and bioinformatics.

  • A modern post-genome era introduction to key techniques used in genetic engineering.
  • An example driven past-to-present approach to allow the experiments of today to be placed in an historical context
  • The book is beautifully illustrated in full-colour throughout.
  • Associated website including updates, additional content and illusions

From the Back Cover:

Analysis of Genes and Genomes is a clear introduction to the theoretical and practical basis of genetic engineering, gene cloning and molecular biology. All aspects of genetic engineering in the post-genomic era are covered, beginning with the basics of DNA structure and DNA metabolism. Using an example-driven approach, the fundamentals of creating mutations in DNA, cloning in bacteria, yeast, plants and animals are all clearly presented.

Newer technologies such as DNA macro and macroarrays, proteomics and bioinformatics are introduced in later chapters helping students to analyse and understand the vast amounts of data that are now available through genome sequence and function projects.

Aimed at students with a basic knowledge of the molecular side of biology, this will be invaluable to those looking to better understand the complexities and capabilities of these important new technologies.

Review:

"It could be an excellent supporting book to go along with a more general text in a course covering molecular biology.” (Biochemistry and Molecular Education, July/ August 2004)

"...the list of relevant Nobel laureates at the end will be useful and was a delight..." (Heredity, Vol. 94, 2005)

"...the full range of topics one would wish to see in such a book are covered...I certainly welcome the book..." (Genetical Research, Vol.84, 2004)

" ... invaluable to those looking to better understand the complexities and capabilities of these important new technologies." (Thaiszia Journal of Botany, Vol. 15; 173-185, 2005)
