About this book


This volume provides broad coverage of computational and mathematical techniques and concepts related to the field of comparative genomics. The topics covered in the chapters range from those concerned with general techniques and concepts that apply to all organisms to others that are more specialized, covering specific biological systems such as viruses, Drosophila, and Homo sapiens. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, by authors who are active researchers in the field, many chapters include step-by-step procedures, which illustrate practical applications of the techniques described.

Cutting-edge and thorough, Comparative Genomics: Methods and Protocols should be useful to students and researchers in the continually growing and exciting field of comparative genomics.
