Mapping Our Genes - Genome Projects: How Big? How Fast?
Publisher: U.S. Government Printing Office 1988
Number of pages: 214
The growing power and speed of research in molecular biology have led to proposals to apply novel molecular biological methods to the genetics of entire organisms. Research and technology efforts aimed at mapping and sequencing large portions or entire genomes are called genome projects...

The authors from diverse backgrounds describe how the nature, location and frequency of different types of mutation causing inherited disease are shaped in large part, and often in remarkably predictable ways, by the local DNA sequence environment.
