By Sydney Brenner,Jeffrey H. Miller

The explosion of the sector of genetics over the past decade, with the recent applied sciences that experience motivated study, means that a brand new type of reference paintings is required to maintain velocity with this kind of fast-moving and interdisciplinary field.  Brenner's Encyclopedia of Genetics, moment Edition, builds at the starting place of the 1st variation through addressing the various key subfields of genetics that have been simply of their infancy while the 1st variation was once released. The currency and accessibility of this foundational content material can be unrivalled, making this paintings precious for scientists and non-scientists alike. 

Featuring particularly brief entries on genetics themes written via specialists in that subject, Brenner's Encyclopedia of Genetics offers a great way to quick know about any element of genetics, from Abortive Transduction to Zygotes. including to its software, the paintings offers brief entries that in brief outline keywords, and a consultant to extra examining and appropriate web pages for additional research. a number of the entries comprise figures to give an explanation for tricky innovations. keyword phrases in similar parts similar to biochemistry, telephone, and molecular biology also are integrated, and there are entries that describe historic figures in genetics, delivering insights into their careers and discoveries.

  • This 7-volume set represents a 25% enlargement from the 1st version, with over 1600 articles encompassing this burgeoning field.
  • Thoroughly updated, with many new themes and subfields coated that have been of their infancy or no longer inexistence on the time of the 1st edition.  well timed insurance of emergent components akin to epigenetics, customized genomic medication, pharmacogenetics, and genetic enhancement technologies
  • Interdisciplinary and international in its outlook, as befits the sector of genetics
  • Brief articles, written by way of specialists within the box, which not just talk about, outline, and clarify key parts of the sector, but in addition supply definition of keyword phrases, feedback for additional analyzing, and biographical sketches of the main humans within the heritage of genetics.
