Easy-to-use and well-organized, the Encyclopedia of Genetics is an invaluable reference work for everyone from the academic researcher to the educated layperson. Key Features Comprehensive coverage: at 4 volumes and over 1, entries this is the largest Genetics reference work . Taylor & Francis, - Science - pages 1 Review The Encyclopedia includes entries, beginning with the origins of genetics including historical background on 5/5(1). This two-volume set provides a thorough coverage of the basics of genetics from historical, scientific and social issues perspectives. This revised edition adds more than 60 new overview essays and 26 new sidebars to the original entries, reflecting the rapid developments in this branch of science. Featuring relatively short entries on genetics topics written by experts in that topic, Brenner's Encyclopedia of Genetics provides an effective way to quickly learn about any aspect of genetics, from Abortive Transduction to Zygotes. Adding to its utility, the work provides short entries that briefly define key terms, and a guide to additional reading and relevant websites for further study.
It covers the basics and the latest in genomics, proteomics, genetic engineering, small RNAs, transcription factories, chromosome territories, stem cells, genetic networks, epigenetics, prions, hereditary diseases, patents, etc. Similar integrated information . Summary: The Encyclopedia of Genetics provides the most complete and authoritative coverage of genetics ever published. Dr. Dr. Sydney Brenner, the Nobel Prize winner for Physiology or Medicine, and Professor Jeffrey H. Miller of UCLA have gathered the world's top geneticists to contribute to this outstanding collection. This book is one of the best genetics textbooks that is intended for undergraduate students and covers the main concepts and ideas of Genetics, as well as more current research and discoveries. This book has several advantages: The concepts presented in the textbook are described in clear, concise prose; The book has a focus on the problem – solving, which is an essential part of a good genetics course; The book . GENETIC RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGY. The early twenty-first century is an era of genetics. Genetic science, genetic technologies, genetically based diseases, animal and human cloning, and genetically modified organisms are regular visitors to the news and entertainment culture. Together with the revolution in information technologies, and sometimes going hand in hand, the biotech revolution .
To them and many others at the periphery of genetics this Encyclopedia will prove most useful. Like the Encyclopedia Britannica it is a cross between a dictionary and a text book. Hybrids are defined in three lines, while Jonathan Hodgkin's brilliant exposition of past and present research on Drosophila's rival, the minute nematode worm.
