This most up-to-date and comprehensive collection of 12,000 technical terms of the modern fields of genome research (genomics), gene expression technology (transcriptomics), and protein structure and function (proteomics) is the successor of the very successful long-seller and leading title The Dictionary of Gene Technology.
This new edition appreciates a far-reaching diversification of the technical language of the three disciplines and tries to order the sometimes confusing usage of multiple synonyms, acronyms and laboratory jargons. It presents extensive explanations of the terms, frequently supported by illustrations, and provides multiple links to related terms of neighboring science fields such as genetics, molecular genetics, molecular medicine, biotechnology, nanotechnology, microbiology, biochemistry and bio-physics. All the chemical formulas are professionally drawn in a uniform style, and most of the figures and schemes are custom-designed.
This outstanding dictionary assists laypersons, students, journalists, officials, and experts alike to understand the meaning of most terms of the three continuously and vigorously expanding disciplines.
