The book is intended to be a resource for students as well as scientists in education and for the general public to learn about proteomics and genomics. Chromosomes form the basis for our genetic heritage and are the code for protein synthesis. The Human Genome Map came out in 2002, and the Proteome Sequence Map is under currently being created by a global consortia initiative. Proteome and genome building blocks already form the basis of scientific research areas as well as large parts of the pharmaceutical and biomedical industry. The book initiative will provide the background to and our current understanding of these gene and protein areas, as well as describe how cutting-edge science is using these resources to develop new medicines and new diagnostics for patient care and treatment. The book will be useful for undergraduate students as well as university students and researchers who need a good understanding of genomics and proteomics within the clinical field. The book will also be targeted at a broad public as well as readers not specialized within this field.Dr. Marko-Varga is the head of the Head of Div. Clinical Protein Science & Imaging at the Biomedical Center, Dept. of Measurement Technology and Industrial Electrical Engineering, Lund University, and Professor at the 1st Department of Surgery, Tokyo Medical University, Tokyo, Japan.
