About this book

From the editorial:

"The present issue of Biology International coincides with the organisation of the lUBS 28th General Assembly in Cairo, which marks the completion of the First Triennium into the 21st Century. [...] Biology International, which serves as the principal medium for lUBS, reported on the main developments that occurred during the Triennium (Cf. Issues n°s 40 - 44). The present issue of Biology International, Featuring Genomics, provides good examples of integrative approaches to biological research, notably with papers on 'Genomics and the Changing Profile of Human Disease' by Bittles; 'Microbial Infection and the Genesis of Chronic Disease' by Whittum-Hudson et al.; and 'Integrating Genomic Characters for a Holistic Approach to Understanding Plant Genomes' by Leitch and Bennett. These papers are also relevant to the on-going discussions related to the development of "Science for Health and Well-Being," a new inter-union initiative of ICSU.
