About this book

Advanced Genetic Analysis explores the question "How can the principles of genetics be used as analytical tools to solve biological problems?" Drawing on the latest experimental tools, including microarrays, RNAi, and bioinformatics approaches, it provides a state-of-the-art review of the field, but in a truly student-friendly manner.

'It is refreshing to see the focus move away from the detail of molecular mechanism towards understanding and scientific investigation' The Society for General Microbiology 'Philip Meneely makes a concerted effort to tie the key concepts derived from model systems to an understanding of human medical genetics, which works well and will be appreciated by students.' The Society for General Microbiolo gy I enjoyed reading this chapter with its wonderful analogies...The author is gifted in writing in such a way that the reader will understand difficult concepts. Helena Kuivaniemi, Center for Molecular Medicine and Genetics, Wayne State University, USA
