Rapid advances in a collection of techniques referred to as gene technology, genetic engineering, recombinant DNA technology and gene cloning have pushed molecular biology to the forefront of the biological sciences. From Genes to Genomes: Concepts and Applications of DNA Technology
will explain key ideas underlying the most central techniques in the context of the ways in which they are used.
The book opens with a brief review of the basic concepts of molecular biology, before moving on to describe the key molecular methods and how they fit together. This ranges from the cloning and study of individual genes to the sequencing of whole genomes, and the analysis of genome-wide information. Finally, the book moves on to consider some of the applications of these techniques, in biotechnology, medicine and agriculture, as well as in research that is causing the current explosion of knowledge across the biological sciences.
From Genes to Genomes: Concepts and Applications of DNA Technology:
- Introduces key techniques and concepts involved in cloning genes and in studying their expression and variation.
- Provides an accessible introduction to genome sequencing and bioinformatics
- Includes clear two-colour diagrams throughout with an extensive glossary at the end of the book.
Aimed at intermediate level undergraduate students on a wide range of courses in the biological and biomedical sciences.
