Genomics: Applications in Human Biology

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

Review:

"Genomics is the more specialised...but still manages to cover an impressive array of topics relevant to human biology, including infectious disease, cancer and biopharmaceuticals. Wherever possible, the authors have gone out of their way to link technology and biological application." Paul B. Rainey, Times Higher Education Supplement, March 2004

From the Back Cover:

Written by the successful author team of Sandy Primrose and Richard Twyman, Genomics: Applications in Human Biology is a topical book showing how the new science of genomics is adding impetus to the advances in human health provided by biotechnology.

Aimed at advanced undergraduates, it assumes a basic knowledge of the principles of recombinant DNA technology and will form an excellent basis for further study into human disease, cancer, and new therapies.




  • Written to provide the necessary overview of the subject, covering technological developments, applications and (where necessary) their ethical implications
  • Divided into three sections, the first section introduces the role of biotechnology and genomics in medicine and sets out some of the technological advances that have been the basis of recent medical breakthroughs
  • The second section takes a closer look at how biotechnology and genomics are influencing the prevention and treatment of different categories of disease
  • Finally the contribution of biotechnology and genomics to the development of different types of therapy is described, including conventional drugs, recombinant proteins and gene/cell therapies
  • References to appropriate sections in two other popular books, authored by Sandy Primrose and Richard Twyman, are included - Principles of Gene Manipulation and Principles of Gene Analysis and Genomics
  • Features several categories of boxed text, including history boxes (describing the origins and development of particular technologies or treatments), molecular boxes (featuring the molecular basis of diseases or treatments in more detail) and ethics boxes (which discusses the ethical implications of technology development and new therapies)
