An Introduction to Ecological Genomics

Nico M. van Straalen and Dick Roelofs

Abstract

The genomics revolution has expanded from its origins in molecular biology to impact upon every discipline in the life sciences, including ecology. This book addresses a series of fundamental ecological questions on stress responses, population structure, genetic variation, adaptation, life-histories, community structure, and nutrient cycling from a genomics perspective. An overview of next-generation sequencing methods is provided, as are the principles of microarray-based gene expression and data analysis. The properties of prokaryotic as well as eukaryotic genomes are discussed, and a syste ... More

Keywords: genomics, ecology, evolution, phyogenetics, metagenomics, life-history, ageing, stress responses, gene expression, next generation sequencing
