Genetic Dissection of Complex Traits
D.C. Rao, C. Charles Gu
Academic Press, Apr 23, 2008 - Medical - 300 pages
The field of genetics is rapidly evolving and new medical breakthroughs are occuring as a result of advances in knowledge of genetics. This series continually publishes important reviews of the broadest interest to geneticists and their colleagues in affiliated disciplines.
* Five sections on the latest advances in complex traits
* Methods for testing with ethical, legal, and social implications
* Hot topics include discussions on systems biology approach to drug discovery; using comparative genomics for detecting human disease genes; computationally intensive challenges, and more
