Description

A grand summary and synthesis of the tremendous amount of data now available in the post genomic era on the structural features, architecture, and evolution of the human genome. The authors demonstrate how such architectural features may be important to both evolution and to explaining the susceptibility to those DNA rearrangements associated with disease. Technologies to assay for such structural variation of the human genome and to model genomic disorders in mice are also presented. Two appendices detail the genomic disorders, providing genomic features at the locus undergoing rearrangement, their clinical features, and frequency of detection.show more

Back cover copy

It is now abundantly clear that architectural features of the human genome can lead to DNA rearrangements that cause both disease and behavioral traits. In Genomic Disorders: The Genomic Basis of Disease, distinguished experts and pioneers in the field of genomics and genome rearrangements summarize and synthesize the tremendous amount of data now available in the postgenomic era on the structural features, architecture, and evolution of the human genome. The authors demonstrate how such architectural features may be important to evolution and explaining the susceptibility to those DNA rearrangements associated with disease. Technologies to assay for such structural variation of the human genome and model genomic disorders in mice are also presented. Two appendices detail the genomic disorders, providing genomic features at the locus undergoing rearrangement, their clinical features, and frequency of detection. Comprehensive and clinically relevant, Genomic Disorders: The Genomic Basis of Disease offers genome and clinical genetics researchers not only an up-to-date survey of genome architecture, but also details those rearrangements that can be the underlying cause or basis of many human traits and disorders.show more
