The Handbook of Genome Mapping: Genetic and Physical Mapping is the first book on the market to cover these hot topics in considerable detail, and is set apart by its combination of genetic and physical mapping. Throughout, each chapter begins with an easy–to–read introduction, also making the book the first reference designed for non–specialists and newcomers, too.
In addition to being an outstanding bench work reference, the book is an excellent textbook for learning and teaching genomics, especially for courses on genome mapping. It also serves as up–to–date guide for seasoned researchers involved in genetic and physical mapping of genomes, in particular plant genomes.
