About

Overview

One of the most authoritative and wide-ranging reference yet assembled on Functional Genomics (the systematic analysis and identification of genes and their function) and Proteomics (the study of the complex structures and functions of proteins) in the rapidly expanding field of Molecular Medicine, the two-volume reference work offers a comprehensive overview of the terms, topics and issues in both molecular biology and molecular medicine, with particular emphasis placed on the molecular causes of diseases. It provides current information about developments in the field, including pharmacogenetics and pharmacoproteomics, gene regulation and gene therapy.
