Genes, Genomes and Genomics, having eight colour plates, has chapters written by internationally renowned experts, provides an enormous reservoir of new information on the various theoretical and applied aspects of unraveling the secrets hidden in the genes of plants, animals and microorganisms; gene library, gene analysis, gene mapping, gene list and genetic information; molecular analysis of genes and gene products; gene cloning, gene expression and gene therapy; characterization and sequencing of eukaryotic and prokaryotic
organisms; gene identification and structure in cereal grasses
and mammals; comparative and evolutionary approaches to gene function; gene prediction and genome annotation; gene and genome evolution; genome organization, expression and interaction; genome sequencing of pathogens, Arabidopsis, rice, human-, bacterial-, and yeast-genomes; genomics of plants, animals and pests and disease agents; and, proteomics, microbial genomics, functional genomics, human genomics, structural genomics, pharmacogenomics, comparative genomics, computational genomics and evolutionary genomics. Each chapter contains an extensive list of references, color photographs and line drawings, if any. No other available work provides such an up to date and in depth coverage, which is intended to serve as an indispensable reference work for academic and research students and scientists working in the applied areas of plant, animal and microbial sciences and closely related scientific disciplines.
