By Charles R. Cantor

A different exploration of the rules and strategies underlying the Human Genome venture and smooth molecular genetics and biotechnology-from best researchers

In Genomics, Charles R. Cantor, former director of the Human Genome venture, and Cassandra L. Smith provide the 1st necessary evaluate of the thoughts and applied sciences at the back of the Human Genome venture and the sphere of molecular genetics and biotechnology. Written with a number readers in mind-from chemists and biologists to laptop scientists and engineers-the booklet starts off with a evaluate of the elemental homes of DNA and the chromosomes that package deal it in cells. The authors describe the 3 major innovations utilized in DNA analysis-hybridization, polymerase chain response, and electrophoresis-and current a whole exploration of DNA mapping in its many alternative types. by means of explaining either the theoretical rules and useful foundations of recent molecular genetics to a large viewers, the booklet brings the medical group towards the last word aim of knowing the organic functionality of DNA. Genomics features:

  • Topical association inside chapters for simple reference
  • A dialogue of the constructing tools of sequencing, equivalent to sequencing via hybridization (SBH) during which info is learn via phrases rather than letters
  • Detailed causes and important reviews of the numerous sorts of DNA maps that may be generated-including cytogenic and restrict maps in addition to interspecies mobilephone hybrids
  • Informed predictions for the way forward for DNA sequencing
