About this book

This book provides an unrivalled in-depth treatise of genomic imprinting, a phenomenon which plays a vital role in many biological processes in developmental biology, evolution and human diseases and genetics. The reason for this broad range of influence derives from the fact that genomic imprinting shields a number of important genes from the full effects of Mendelian inheritance. The importance of this surprising observation, which was discovered less than two decades ago, has been only slowly recognized. The reason for this may be that genomic imprinting is a difficult concept to understand. This book aims at providing interesting, entertaining and detailed information for any scientist, irrespective of their particular field of study.
