This title provides an overview of the rapidly evolving field of genomics with coverage of nucleic acid technologies, proteomics and bioinformatics. It includes chapters on applications in human health, agriculture and comparative genomics and also contains two chapters on the legal and ethical issues of genomics, a topic that is becoming increasingly important as genomics moves out of the laboratory into practical applications.
...represents a very useful contribution to the field and is recommended as a good introduction... (Human Genomics, Vol. 1(3), 2004)
