Genome science or genomics is essential to advancing knowledge in the fields of biology and medicine. Specifically, researchers learn about the molecular biology behind genetic expression in living organisms and related methods of treating human genetic diseases (including gene therapy). Advances in Genome Science is an e-book series which provides a multi-disciplinary view of some of the latest developments in genome research, allowing readers to capture the essentiality and diversity of genomics in contemporary science.

The second volume of this ebook series contains a selection of articles on intracellular gene regulation and expressoion in human disease such as arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, Nijmegen Breakage Syndrome, Tumors and Malaria among other diseases. The volume also features some chapters on plant genetics.
