Covering molecular genetics from the basics through to genome expression and molecular phylogenetics, Genomes 3is the latest edition of this pioneering textbook. Updated to incorporate the recent major advances, Genomes 3is an invaluable companion for any undergraduate throughout their studies in molecular genetics.

Genomes 3builds 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.

About the author (2007)

Professor Terry Brown graduated from Queen Elizabeth College, London with a BSc Hons in Microbiology in 1974, and from University College London with a PhD in 1977. He joined the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology as a postdoctoral researcher in 1981, and has remained in Manchester ever since, becoming the UK's first Professor of Biomolecular Archaeology in 2000. He was Head of Biomolecular Sciences from 2002 - 2004 and has been Associate Dean in Life Sciences since 2004.

Terry Brown has been active in genomics and biomolecular archaeology since 1989. He is particularly interested in the origins and spread of agriculture and has published a number of research papers that describe how examination of the genomes of wheat and maize can provide information on the history of cultivation of these crops.
