Genome research advances.

Ed. by Alberto P. Bellini.

Nova Biomedical Books


255 pages




Considering the Human Genome Project as the starting point of genome research in 2003, Bellini (for whom no background information is given) introduces seven chapters by international researchers who present the latest advances in this rapidly-evolving field. They discuss progress in standardizing bioinformatics tools and databases for integrating, visualizing, and analyzing large-scale results; Human Myoblast Genome Therapy for treating muscular dystrophies; irradiation of cells without damage; detection of how viruses integrate into host DNA; the role of genomic instability in cancers; and using genomics to fight such diseases as tuberculosis. Chapters include suggestions for future study, color figures, and screen captures of protein interaction databases and simulation software (e.g., Virtual Cell).
