`Review from previous edition This book is great for introducing the field of genomics, providing the basic concepts underpinning the field, including cutting edge techniques, along with examples of its application. ' Dr Emma Laing, University of Surrey `The writing is eloquent and engages the curious reader with a wide range of background stories. The practical applications are always highlighted. Rather than a text book studied to pass an exam, this book is a pleasure to read.' Dr Richard Bingham, University of Huddersfield `It's the best textbook that I have reviewed for upper level undergraduates. It has good basic coverage of human aspects, databases, and comparative genomics. I like the questions and problems at the end of the chapters.' Professor Michael Shiaris, University of Massachusetts Boston
