Introduction to Genomics

Second Edition

Arthur Lesk

  • This fully updated and restructured new edition, which includes five new chapters, takes account of new developments in the field and presents them in a logical, coherent way.
  • The author's widely-praised writing style leads the reader through a conceptually challenging subject in a clear, lucid way, building confidence in, and enthusiasm for, the subject at the outset.
  • New ethics boxes dispersed throughout the text alert the reader to the ethical issues surrounding the subject.
  • Special topic boxes and case studies augment the main text, enable flexibility of use, and offer an extra level of detail for those studying the topic at a more advanced level.
  • Extensive learning tools throughout - most notably end of chapter exercises, problems and weblems - encourage and support self-directed learning, helping the student to master the subject through hands-on learning.
  • An Online Resource Centre features an extensive range of resources for both lecturers and students, enhancing the value of the book as a teaching and learning tool.

New to this Edition:

  • New, larger format provides greater clarity to the text and accompanying figures.
  • Five new chapters, including one dedicated to metabolomics.
  • Ethics boxes alert the reader to the complexity of the ethical issues surrounding the study of genomics.
  • Highlighted key terms are collated in a glossary at the end of the book.
