Genomics and its related fields of proteomics and bioinformatics are among the most exciting and rapidly expanding disciplines at the start of the 21st century. With more and more whole genome sequences and large-scale datasets becoming available, the task is to analyze this information and use it to deliver greater understanding of how organisms function. This will lead to improvements in medicine, public health and agriculture.

This reference covers all three fields in depth, with a further volume focusing on important topics in genetics. It brings together the latest concepts in these vibrant areas and ensures a truly multidisciplinary approach. With articles for both students and more experienced scientists, this is a key reference source for everyone.
