Covering molecular genetics from the basics through to genome expression and molecular phylogenetics, Genomes 3 is the latest edition of this pioneering textbook. Updated to incorporate the recent major advances, Genomes 3 is an invaluable companion for any undergraduate throughout their studies in molecular genetics.
Genomes 3 builds on the achievements of the previous two editions by putting genomes, rather than genes, at the centre of molecular genetics teaching. Recognising that molecular biology research was being driven more by genome sequencing and functional analysis than by research into genes, this approach has gathered momentum in recent years.
- Two new chapters on genome anatomies, covering the latest sequencing achievements.
- New chapter on genome function, to describe the latest technologies used in studying the transcriptome and the proteome.
- New chapter on recombination, providing expanded coverage of genome evolution.
- Major restructuring of chapter order, to align the book more closely to the practical reality of molecular genetics courses.
- Newly designed and significantly expanded end-of-chapter exercises, including multiple choice questions and innovative figure tests.
- Newly re-drawn artwork, with the emphasis throughout on simplicity and scientific consistency.
- FREE CD-ROM of the artwork supplied with every copy.
