Review from previous edition: It has a number of chapters covering all aspect of genomics, from comparative genomics and evolution to mapping, sequencing and databases through to microarrays and proteomics, finally bringing it all together with systems biology. Suitable for final year undergraduates and masters students, it will also make a good reference book for PhD students” –Dr Dawn L.

Arnold, University of the West of England “This is a very versatile textbook that offers a good overview of genomics in different areas of biological research. It is an excellent introduction for students from different degrees who have an interest in genomics and its underlying techniques. I am impressed by his use of specific examples, analogies, and humour to illuminate scientific principles.

His writing in Introduction to Genomics is fluid and easy leesk read. Peterson, Mississippi State University “Introduction to Genomics provides an excellent, broad and comprehensive overview of genomics research in biology. The field of genomics is highly technology driven and moves extremely fast and this book stands out in translating all this technological information into biological, meaningful concepts. It is highly appropriate to support genomics education to undergraduates.

From the very beginning, it assumes too much knowledge to be really self-contained – I was forced to Google terms like Alu, an important transposable element in the human genome that were left undefined from almost the very first page.

And it’s not that the level is uniformly too high for me, as it rehashes things like the central dogma of biology that are familiar from grade school.

The purpose in this age of buying a paper book is to introductikn something self-contained enough to avoid having to go down a long bunny hole of Internet searching.

I found the uneven assumed background to be disappointing. Its pages are full of colorful boxes containing relatively unhelpful summaries of the main text and over-numerous digressions.

But there’s enough new introfuction in these boxes to make them necessary for understanding subsequent text, so you can’t skip them. Thrashing between the text and these boxes slows me down. Many of the illustrations are non-essential photographs arthud poorly cropped screenshots.

It suffers from many of the sins of bad K textbooks, but given the harder material, it’s even more painful to read. That said, it covers a lot of useful material. Because I do biostatistics for a living and it has been decades since my last formal biology class, I got this book to help me understand the biology of modern high-throughput genomics research.

I am impressed with the writing.

Introduction to Genomics

The author’s presentation of history and the framing of ethical issues could not be better. Unfortunately for people like me the author assumes that you have a background in molecular cellular biology.

Many terms are not defined or defined long after they first appear. Because the writing is excellent you can usually read through the sections with undefined terms with the help of the web but it is a slow difficult read. The index is good but there is no glossary. The web support for the book is fair with expanded graphics and answers to some problems but not really great. There are questions that are supposed to be answered using the web like how the field has grown since the book was published but the publisher does not provide hyperlinks to support those questions.


With a glossary for non-biologists and better web support this would be an ideal book for everyone interested in the field. Without those features, it is still very good. Wide variety of different concepts covered.

Congratulation to the author.

PS I am a professional in biomedical sciences, and use this book to design some of my lectures. The book takes the reader gently through the intricacies of genomics. It is a easy read for the computer scientist with little background in Bio-chemistry. The genetic material is always introduced and illustrated with examples before its importance in the scheme of things is explained.

I highly recommend this book. It is what I was expecting of a new book. Thanks you so much. Brand new book arthu plastic seal. Small, compact book that’s not as heavy as your typical textbook. Good read for beginners. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. If you don’t have a basic understanding of qrthur and genetics, this book is not for you. See all 8 reviews.
