CAIRO BOOKS's Description
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
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
