About the Author

Richard J. Reece is the author of Analysis of Genes and Genomes, published by Wiley.


"It could be an excellent supporting book to go along with a more general text in a course covering molecular biology.? (Biochemistry and Molecular Education, July/ August 2004) "...the list of relevant Nobel laureates at the end will be useful and was a delight?" (Heredity, Vol. 94, 2005) "?the full range of topics one would wish to see in such a book are covered?I certainly welcome the book?" (Genetical Research, Vol.84, 2004) " ? invaluable to those looking to better understand the complexities and capabilities of these important new technologies." (Thaiszia Journal of Botany, Vol. 15; 173-185, 2005)
