  • The Deeper Genomeby John Parrington

    OUP Oxford 2015; US$ 19.99 US$ 17.19

    Mapping the human genome proved to be just the beginning in understanding our genes, what makes us human, and how we can use the knowledge to cure inherited diseases. John Parrington describes an emerging picture of our genome, in 3D, with many non-gene players and environmental influences, that is far more complex and subtle than we ever imagined. more...

  • Cloning: A Reference Handbookby David Newton

    ABC-CLIO 2015; US$ 60.00

  • Cracking the Genomeby Kevin Davies

    Free Press 2001; US$ 25.00

    In 1953, James Watson and Francis Crick discovered the double helix structure of DNA. The discovery was a profound, Nobel Prize-winning moment in the history of genetics, but it did not decipher the messages on the twisted, ladderlike strands within our cells. No one knew what the human genome sequence actually was. No one had cracked the code of life.... more...

  • Introduction to Statistical Methods in Modern Geneticsby M.C. Yang

    CRC Press 2000; US$ 139.95

    Although the basic statistical theory behind modern genetics is not very difficult, most statistical genetics papers are not easy to read for beginners in the field, and formulae quickly become very tedious to fit a particular area of application. Introduction to Statistical Methods in Modern Genetics distinguishes between the necessary and unnecessary... more...
