With the first draft of the human genome project in the public domain and full analyses of model genomes now available, the subject matter of ′Principles of Genome Analysis and Genomics′ is even ′hotter′ now than when the first two editions were published in 1995 and 1998. In the new edition of this very practical guide to the different techniques and theory behind genomes and genome analysis, Sandy Primrose and new author Richard Twyman provide a fresh look at this topic. In the light of recent exciting advancements in the field, the authors have completely revised and rewritten many parts of the new edition with the addition of five new chapters. Aimed at upper level students, it is essential that in this extremely fast moving topic area the text is up to date and relevant.

" excellent distillation of current knowledge...The book is clearly written, well presented, and feels good. Recommended."Neil Stoker, Royal Veterninary College, London, Microbiology Today, Vol 30, November 2003

"There is no doubt that this book is a very useful source of information, for students and teachers alike. In spite of its dense text, it makes good reading and will help to reduce the general bewilderment induced by the rapid pace of technological and conceptual innovation in biology." Leon Otten, Plant Molecular Biology Institute, Plant Science, 2003.

Principles of Genome Analysis and Genomics, 3rd edition, is "very good indeed and deserves to be a widely popular resource for newcomers to genome analysis." J.Armour, University of Nottingham, Heredity, June 2004
