This fourth edition of a very successful longseller and a leading title is now neatly divided into three volumes, with the text thoroughly updated and expanded by around 30 %. The result is some 12,000 entries providing comprehensive coverage of genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics. Each entry is accompanied by an extensive explanation including a complete listing of synonyms and acronyms and most also contain cross-references to related terms. All the formulas have been professionally redrawn to create a uniform style and most of the figures are custom designed for the dictionary.
