Media reviews

"This excellent book makes a strong case for microsatellites...several of the book's editors and contributors have been active in developing these genetic distance measures. This book will provide an excellent introduction and reference for those using tandem repeats in their research." -- The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol 76, Mar 2001
