Covering molecular genetics from the genomics perspective, Genomes, has been completely rewritten to incorporate the major advances made in the past three years. The new edition includes: the sequencing of the human genome; characterisation of genome expression and replication processes, and transcriptomics and proteomics.
Genomes 2 has been extended to include more introductory material making it appropriate for early undergraduate study. As with the first edition, the superb full-colour illustrations are free to download.
KEY CHANGES FROM THE FIRST EDITION:
* Expanded introductory material
* New study aids: (Learning Objectives - Highlighted Key Terms - Self Study Questions - Problem-based Learning)
* New coverage of the transcriptome and proteome
* New chapter on cloning techniques and PCR
* Extensive update of functional analysis, genome expression, and genome replication and evolution
