9780123749840: Brenner's Encyclopedia of Genetics, Second Edition

The explosion of the field of genetics over the last decade, with the new technologies that have stimulated research, suggests that a new sort of reference work is needed to keep pace with such a fast-moving and interdisciplinary field.  Brenner's Encyclopedia of Genetics, Second Edition, builds on the foundation of the first edition by addressing many of the key subfields of genetics that were just in their infancy when the first edition was published. The currency and accessibility of this foundational content will be unrivalled, making this work useful for scientists and non-scientists alike. 

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. Many of the entries include figures to explain difficult concepts. Key terms in related areas such as biochemistry, cell, and molecular biology are also included, and there are entries that describe historical figures in genetics, providing insights into their careers and discoveries.

  • This 7-volume set represents a 25% expansion from the first edition, with over 1600 articles encompassing this burgeoning field.
  • Thoroughly up-to-date, with many new topics and subfields covered that were in their infancy or not inexistence at the time of the first edition.  Timely coverage of emergent areas such as epigenetics, personalized genomic medicine, pharmacogenetics, and genetic enhancement technologies
  • Interdisciplinary and global in its outlook, as befits the field of genetics
  • Brief articles, written by experts in the field, which not only discuss, define, and explain key elements of the field, but also provide definition of key terms, suggestions for further reading, and biographical sketches of the key people in the history of genetics.

Stanley Maloy is Professor of Biology and Dean of the College of Sciences at San Diego State University. He received a BS degree in biological sciences from the University of California, Irvine; an MS in microbiology from California State University, Long Beach; and a PhD in molecular biology and
biochemistry from the University of California, Irvine. Following a postdoctoral fellowship in genetics at the University of Utah, he was on the faculty at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign for many years.

He has authored several books and has won multiple awards for teaching. His research interests include bacterial and phage genetics and the evolution of virulence.

Kelly Hughes is Professor Ordinaire at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland. After receiving a BS degree from the University of California at Irvine and a PhD from the University of Utah working with John Roth and Baldomero Olivera, he joined Mel Simon's group at Caltech as a postdoctoral fellow in 1986. He was appointed assistant professor in the Department of Microbiology at the University of Washington in Seattle in 1989 and moved up the ranks to full professor in 2001. He moved to the University of Utah in 2005 and spent 5 years in the Biology Department there before taking his current position. He was a visiting professor in Winfried Boos' lab at the University of Konstanz, Germany, in 1997-98, in Guy Cornelis' lab at the Biozentrum in Basel, Switzerland, in 2004 and in Keiichi Namba's lab at the University of Osaka in 2005 and 2007. His major research interests have focused on the biogenesis of the bacterial flagellum and coupled gene regulatory mechanisms.

Review:

"The revised version features more than 1,600 articles, representing an increase in content of approximately 25 percent over the first edition (2002),...Important updates include entries on new topics such as epigenetics and pharmacogenetics, which help provide a foundation for personalized medicine based on genome sequence...Summing Up: Recommended."--Choice Reviews Online, April 2014
