This encyclopedia brings together for the first time all four fields of genetics, genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics in an online format for faster delivery of content to meet your dynamic research requirements.
The Browse by Contents button above takes you to the full table of contents. The articles are also classified by type, as Introductory Reviews for people new to a subject, Specialist Reviews that provide in-depth coverage for those with more experience, Short Specialist reviews that address cutting-edge topics in current research, and Basic Techniques essays or Tutorials. These may be accessed via the Browse by Subjects button.
The focus is on studies based on the human and mouse genomes, but other important model eukaryotes, as well as pathogenic bacteria, are given in-depth coverage. With articles written by established leaders in the field as well as by rising stars, this work will be an essential reference tool for all members of genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics and bioinformatics teams, from students, to post-docs, to senior scientists, and a 'must have' for university and research institute libraries. It will also provide a valuable resource for pharmaceutical and biotech companies that have an interest in this important and rapidly developing field.
For readers approaching new fields, there is a comprehensive Glossary that explains over 500 terms in a clear and concise way.
