Genomics Protocols – Michael P. Starkey , Ramnath Elaswarapu
About this book
Genome analysis is essential both to understanding the molecular bases of physiological processes and to the development of novel therapies for treating human diseases. In Genomics Protocols, an expert panel of internationally acclaimed researchers from academia, industry, and leading genome centers provides a comprehensive generic set of protocols for gene hunting and genome analysis. Drawing on emerging technologies in the fields of bioinformatics and proteomics, these protocols cover not only those traditionally recognized as genomics, but also early therapeutic approaches exploiting the potential of gene therapy. Highlights include methods for the analysis of differential gene expression, SNP detection, comparative genomic hybridization, and the functional analysis of genes, as well as the use of bioinformatics for gene identification and the prediction of protein function. Each method includes step-by-step instructions and invaluable notes that describe the quirks in a procedure and the little tricks that make all the difference to a successful outcome.
Comprehensive and eminently practical, Genomics Protocols provides academic and pharmaceutical researchers alike with richly detailed accounts of the most up-to-date genomics techniques, including the emerging technologies from proteomics-all highly effective tools that will help investigators expand their research horizons and better understand gene function.
