Description

This comprehensive reference covers the comparative methodology involved in studying molecular evolution. Providing a practical introduction to the role of bioinformatics in comparative genomics, this publication further discusses the basic technology used in genome sequencing projects and provides an overview of genome storage databases currently in use.
This timely and cutting-edge text also:
* Reviews the basic principles of genomics and gene
expression analysis
* Discusses analytic methods in proteomics and
transcriptomics
* Includes a comprehensive list of Web resource
