Introduction to Genomics provides insight into many topics in the field of genomics, including the similarities and differences between organisms, how different organisms evolved, and how our understanding of genomics may inform human health and well-being in the future. After a general introduction, the book looks at the human genome project before turning its attention to mapping, sequencing, annotation, and databases. It also looks at evolution and genomic change. The text examines the following topics in more detail: the genomes of prokaryotes and viruses, the genomes of eukaryotes, and comparative genomics. It looks at the impact of genomics on human health and disease and the relationship between genomics and anthropology. Finally transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and systems biology are considered.
