CHOICE Review

Postgenomics: Perspectives on Biology after the Genome is a compilation of multidisciplinary analyses of the evolving ontology of the genome since the completion of the Human Genome Project. Both editors have published before on the subject: Richardson is author of Sex Itself: The Search for Male and Female in the Human Genome (CH, Jun'14, 51-5586), and Stevens wrote Life out of Sequence: A Data-Driven History of Bioinformatics (CH, Jun'14, 51-5587). The contributors (the editors among them) to the present collection write from a range of perspectives--from history of science to network science to philosophy of science--sharing their perspectives on various topics, notable among them genome-wide association studies (GWAS), which became possible through the advancement of high-throughput genomic technologies to investigate different human diseases and traits. This book not only analyzes the impact of numerous GWAS but also examines emerging research areas such as epigenetics in political, social, and philosophical contexts, in so doing redefining the information ecology of the genome. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students, researchers, faculty, professionals. --Sarah H. Jeong, Wake Forest University
