About this title


Recombinant DNA, Third Edition, is an essential text for undergraduate, graduate, and professional courses in Genomics, Cell and Molecular Biology, Recombinant DNA, Genetic Engineering, Human Genetics, Biotechnology, and Bioinformatics. The Third Edition of this landmark text offers an authoritative, accessible, and engaging introduction to modern, genome-centered biology from its foremost practitioners.  The new edition explores core concepts in molecular biology in a contemporary inquiry-based context, building its coverage around the most relevant and exciting examples of current research and landmark experiments that redefined our understanding of DNA.  As a result, students learn how working scientists make real high-impact discoveries. The first chapters provide an introduction to the fundamental concepts of genetics and genomics, an inside look at the Human Genome Project, bioinformatic and experimental techniques for large-scale genomic studies, and a survey of epigenetics and RNA interference. The final chapters cover the quest to identify disease-causing genes, the genetic basis of cancer, and DNA fingerprinting and forensics. In these chapters the authors provide examples of practical applications in human medicine, and discuss the future of human genetics and genomics projects.

About the Author:

This book will serve as an excellent source in college-level classrooms where professors and students will enjoy the straightforward approach taken by the authors to describe the basics of molecular biology. The volume is also recommended for anyone else with an interest in genes, genomes, and their applications in biotechnology, who will find the book s focused approach on the facts, experiments, and procedural outcomes very simple to follow and understand...
The authors have done a remarkable job of presenting enough information so that readers will understand a particular concept, technique, or tool without tedious discussions that may draw them away from the main points. With such a focused and highly illustrative text, readers will find this first section and the remainder of the book (which highlights specific issues in whole-genome analyses and human genomics) to be not only educational and informative, but also a pleasure to read.
