About this book

The Encyclopedia of Genetics provides the most complete and authoritative coverage of genetics ever published. Dr. Sydney Brenner, the 2002 Nobel Prize winner for Physiology or Medicine, and Professor Jeffrey H. Miller of UCLA have gathered the world's top geneticists to contribute to this outstanding collection. Diverse information is compiled into a single, comprehensive source, containing a clear presentation of cutting-edge knowledge. Easy-to-use and well-organized, the Encyclopedia of Genetics is an invaluable reference work for everyone from the academic researcher to the educated layperson. The Encyclopedia provides: comprehensive coverage: at 4 volumes and over 1,700 entries. This is the largest Genetics reference work currently available. There is complete, up-to-date information, initial online access to the online version, which includes fully searchable text and numerous hyperlinks to related sites. It features cross-references to related articles within the Encyclopedia. With 2800 pages; two-color printing throughout text and figures; color plate sections also included.

Does this encyclopedia fill the editors' 5-year effort to 'aim to ensure that the breadth of the work has not compromised the depth of the articles, and ...that readers will be able to find accurate and up-to-date information on all major topics of genetics?' I am convinced it does and I am sure all those involved in genetics from the laboratory to the bedsides will find this an extremely valuable reference work.-NEUROMUSCULAR DISORDERS (January 2003) "...a beautifully produced major work of reference which will be valued by all involved in genetics for many years to come." -NEUROMUSCULAR DISORDERS (January 2003) "...unrivaled and provides a unique resource for those working in any aspect of genetics from basic research to clinical genetics. In a rapidly changing field the editors and authors have done an outstanding and commendable job. This is a reference that every library should own." DOODY'S NOTES (2002)
