About this book

A state-of-the-art reference, "Genetic Mapping of Disease Genes" presents a detailed account of the new methodical approaches to gene mapping. It provides completely up-to-date information and comprehensive coverage of research in this field, and includes contributions from the leading experts. The book gives a broad overview of the genetic mapping involved in inherited diseases and discusses the shortcomings of established mapping procedures. The book will be essential reading for all researchers and postgraduate research students in molecular genetics, clinical genetics, and molecular biology, but also those involved in ophthalmology, public health, medical statistics, and mathematics. The volume covers: Introduction and History; Linkage in Dominant Recessive and Oligogenic Disease; Model Free (Non-Parametric) Methods; Tools (for Gene Mapping); and Applications.

These contributions, from some of the most eminent geneticists of our day, are dazzlingly heterogenous in both style and content. They range from the thorough and methodical to the allusive and almost whimsical, from a fascinating account of the earliest history of linkage analysis to descriptions of novel methods whose status in the field is as yet unclear...I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in this field. --ANNALS OF HUMAN GENETICS
