9780878932368: A Primer of Genome Science

Genome science has matured as a discipline to the point where it is now incorporated as a regular part of the genetics curriculum in universities. A Primer of Genome Science, Third Edition, bridges the gap between standard genetics textbooks and highly specialized, technical, and advanced treatments of the subdisciplines. It provides an affordable introduction to the field that is suited to advanced undergraduate or early graduate courses. Bioinformatic principles and experimental strategies are explained side-by-side with the experimental methods, establishing a framework that allows teachers to explore topics and the literature at their own pace.

The Primer is organized into six chapters dealing with the scope of genomics, genome sequencing, variation and complex traits, gene expression, proteomics, and metabolomics. Each chapter includes several boxes explaining the theory behind bioinformatic methods, discussion questions, and a summary. This edition has been updated to include the latest developments in next-generation sequencing, high-volume genotyping and expression profiling, and advances in metabolomics.

Review:


"In realizing that the field is unlikely to slow down any time soon, by simply demonstrating that they can keep pace with it, the authors have again succeeded with a well-organized view of the present and future of genome science."--Brian C. Verrelli, The Quarterly Review of Biology


"With the huge data sets that are produced in genomic studies, many mathematicians and computer sciences researchers, as well as cell biologists and classical geneticists, are being drawn into working on problems from a genomics perspective, and they will profit greatly from reading this book. The work also provides an affordable introduction that is suited to advanced academic coursework. As in earlier editions, the illustrations, special topic boxes, and hands-on exercises are superb. Highly recommended."--K. A. Newman, Choice
