Description - Analysis of Genes and Genomes by Richard J. Reece
Analysis of Genes and Genomes is a clear introduction to the theoretical and practical basis of genetic engineering, gene cloning and molecular biology. All aspects of genetic engineering in the post-genomic era are covered, beginning with the basics of DNA structure and DNA metabolism. Using an example-driven approach, the fundamentals of creating mutations in DNA, cloning in bacteria, yeast, plants and animals are all clearly presented. Newer technologies such as DNA macro and macroarrays, proteomics and bioinformatics are introduced in later chapters helping students to analyse and understand the vast amounts of data that are now available through genome sequence and function projects. Aimed at students with a basic knowledge of the molecular side of biology, this will be invaluable to those looking to better understand the complexities and capabilities of these important new technologies. A modern post-genome era introduction to key techniques used in genetic engineering. An example driven past-to-present approach to allow the experiments of today to be placed in an historical context Beautifully illustrated in full colour throughout.
