This series of short monographs captures information on relevant topics and discusses how genomics can be applied to improve on existing conditions
Aims to collate views from leaders in the field who are primarily based in the developing world
Targeted towards genomics applications of developing world problems
Genomics Applications for the Developing World evolved from an observed need for information on genomics and other related “omics’ technologies that are beginning to take hold in the developing world. It presents current research and perspectives from a wide range of respected scientists and world leaders in their fields in both developed and developing countries. Topics range from discussions on Tuberculosis, Malaria, emerging viruses and bacterial infectious agents to discussions on genomics of various crop species and the implications of studies on the human microbiome to aspects of developing world health. The global challenge of genomics education is also discussed.
This book is a reference work for scientists at all levels, educators and students both at the graduate and undergraduate level who reside across the globe.
