“...will provide interesting reading and perspective to almost everyone involved in biological sciences.” (Quarterly Review of Biology, March 2004)
"...certainly deserves a place in institutional libraries...depth of material covered is right for the busy scientist...precise and detailed..." (Briefings in Functional Genomics & Proteomics, Vol 2(4), February 2004)
"...this book gives an illuminating look at the study of genomes through their sequence..." (Human Genomics, January 2004)
"...covers basic and applied problems in the emerging field of comparative functional genomics..." (Genetic Engineering News, Vol 23(14), 2003)"Handbook of Comparative Genomics is a pioneering composition illuminating the emerging scientific discipline of comparative evolutionary genomics. Professors Cecilia Saccone and Graziano Pesole have not only provided us with a treasure trove of molecular, structural and compositional information, but more importantly, they have produced a scholarly exegesis of empirical, statistical, bioinformatical, computational, and evolutionary methodology. The Handbook contains both introductory and advanced material, and manages to maintain a degree of lucidity that is as rare as it is indispensable in scientific discourse."
Dan Graur, Ph.D., Gordon Professor of Life Sciences, Tel Aviv University
"...a unique and most welcome source of information and inspiration for anyone interested in genomics, from advanced undergraduates to experienced researchers."
