Completion of the sequence of the human genome represents an unpar- leled achievement in the history of biology. The project has produced nearly complete, highly accurate, and comprehensive sequences of genomes of s- eral organisms including human, mouse, drosophila, and yeast. Furthermore, the development of high-throughput technologies has led to an explosion of projects to sequence the genomes of additional organisms including rat, chimp, dog, bee, chicken, and the list is expanding. The nearly completed draft of genomic sequences from numerous species has opened a new era of research in biology and in biomedical sciences. In keeping with the interdisciplinary nature of the new scientific era, the chapters in Gene Mapping, Discovery, and Expression: Methods and Protocols recapitulate the necessity of integration of experimental and computational tools for solving - portant research problems. The general underlying theme of this volume is DNA sequence-based technologies. At one level, the book highlights the importance of databases, genome-browsers, and web-based tools for data access and ana- sis. More specifically, sequencing projects routinely deposit their data in p- licly available databases including GenBank, at the National Center of Biotechnology (NCBI) in the United States; EMBL, maintained by the European Bioinformatics Institute; and DDBJ, the DNA Data Bank of Japan. Currently, several browsers offer facile access to numerous genomic DNA sequences for gene mapping and data retrieval.

There is growing enthusiasm in the scientific community about the prospect of mapping and sequencing the human genome, a monumental project that will have far-reaching consequences for medicine, biology, technology, and other fields. But how will such an effort be organized and funded? How will we develop the new technologies that are needed? What new legal, social, and ethical questions will be raised? Mapping and Sequencing the Human Genome is a blueprint for this proposed project. The authors offer a highly readable explanation of the technical aspects of genetic mapping and sequencing, and they recommend specific interim and long-range research goals, organizational strategies, and funding levels. They also outline some of the legal and social questions that might arise and urge their early consideration by policymakers.

Your author decided to write this book about Genome Mapping after attending a Dinner Lecture for Caltech Alumni living in the Santa Barbara County area of Mid-Coast California Dr David Barker, BS 1963 Caltech & PhD in Biochemistry from Brandeis University, gave a slide presentation on DNA sequencing and what it can tell you. In my quest for more knowledge about this exciting area of biochemistry, I sought more information about Genome Mapping and Entire DNA Sequencing from the Google and Yahoo search engines. As is common in Internet Research, I found a great deal of research was taking place worldwide. It was my objective to summarize this research in this book so my readers could learn what is happening and where to find more information about this important area of Biochemistry. One possibility is modifying your DNA to reduce susceptibility to certain diseases..perhaps we will be able to reduce our risk of cancer. One of my good friends died recently of Prostate Cancer, so my interest in combating Cancer has been intensified.

An authoritative Handbook which offers a discussion of the social, political, ethical and economic consequences and implications of the new bio-sciences. The Handbook takes an interdisciplinary approach providing a synoptic overview of contemporary international social science research on genetics, genomics and the new life sciences. It brings together leading scholars with expertise across a wide-ranging spectrum of research fields related to the production, use, commercialisation and regulation of genetics knowledge. The Handbook is structured into seven cross-cutting themes in contemporary social science research on genetics with introductions written by internationally renowned section editors who take an interdisciplinary approach to offer fresh insights on recent developments and issues in often controversial fields of study. The Handbook explores local and global issues and critically approaches a wide range of public and policy questions, providing an invaluable reference source to a wide variety of researchers, academics and policy makers.
