Genomics of Disease is the 24th volume in the Stadler Genetics Symposium series published by Springer, which has, over many years, served as a comprehensive collection of current trends and hot topics in the field of genetics. The current volume summarizes recent progress in our attempts to characterize the genomics of plant and animal diseases. Authoritative analytical reviews are specialized to be attractive to professional researchers, teachers, and students, while also being appealing to a wider audience of scientists in related disciplines.

Genomics of Disease offers essential reference material for any scientist or teacher working in the fields of plant and animal diseases. Coverage of key areas of both animal and plant disease is a unique feature of this volume and one that allows direct comparisons between the systems. All academics, scientists, and industry professionals that desire to take advantage of the most up-to-date information on the continuously emerging and expanding field of the genomics of plant and animal diseases will find it an invaluable resource.

Key features:

* Comprehensive coverage of current topics dealing with the genomics of plant and animal diseases

* Chapters authored by the key scientists in the field

* Accessible utility in a single volume reference
