A state-of-the-art reference, Genetic Mapping of Disease Genes presents a detailed account of the new methodical approaches to gene mapping. It provides completely up-to-date information and comprehensive coverage of research in this field, and includes contributions from the leading experts. The book gives a broad overview of the genetic mapping involved in inherited diseases and discusses the shortcomings of established mapping procedures.
The book will be essential reading for all researchers and postgraduate research students in molecular genetics, clinical genetics, and molecular biology, but also those involved in ophthalmology, public health, medical statistics, and mathematics.
