A fully revised version of the successful First Edition, this one-stop reference book enables all geneticists to improve the efficiency of their research.
The study of human genetics is moving into a challenging new era. New technologies and data resources such as the HapMap are enabling genome-wide studies, which could potentially identify most common genetic determinants of human health, disease and drug response. With these tremendous new data resources at hand, more than ever care is required in their use. Faced with the sheer volume of genetics and genomic data, bioinformatics is essential to avoid drowning true signal in noise.
Considering these challenges, Bioinformatics for Geneticists, works at multiple levels: firstly, for the occasional user who simply wants to extract or analyse specific data; secondly, at the level of the advanced user providing explanations of how and why a tool works and how it can be used to greatest effect.
Finally experts from fields allied to genetics give insight into the best genomics tools and data to enhance a genetic experiment.
...an excellent resource...this book should ensure that any researcher's skill base is maintained (Genetical Research, September 2007) "...this book contains some essential reading for almost any person working in the field of molecular genetics." (European Journal Of Human Genetics, September 2007)
