About this book

The goal of Environmental Genomics is to serve as a manual for an environmental scientist who wishes to embrace genomics to answer environmental questions. The volume is divided into the sections: gene expression profiling, whole genome and chromosome mutation detection, and methods to assay genome diversity and polymorphisms within a particular environment. The studies presented will reduce the uncertainties associated with environmental risk assessment and provide a systematic framework for determining environmental impact and ensuring human health and the sustainability of natural populations.

Media reviews

From the reviews: "This book provides a thought-provoking selection of well-described and diverse techniques to apply to further our understanding of how organisms respond to the environment. ... The techniques are all accessible to a laboratory equipped for molecular biology and this book would provide an excellent addition to any environmental molecular biology laboratory book shelf, institutional library or individual researcher's collection." (Elizabeth Wellington and Emma Travis, Microbiology Today, November, 2008)
