Originally published in 1995, this significant publication on genomic or parental imprinting was prepared by an outstanding team of international authorities. Genomic imprinting results in the preferential expression of one allele, depending on the parent of origin. It is associated with several disease syndromes in humans. Interest in this area has expanded rapidly from the time when it was first recognised that some aspects of inheritance were not adequately explained by the Mendelian laws. The chapters cover a wealth of material to help explain not only the mechanisms of genomic imprinting but also its biological and medical consequences. This interdisciplinary volume encompasses clinical genetics, pathology, developmental biology, evolution and genetics. It will be of interest to all scientists and clinicians working in this area.

Here's what you say about us...

Review of the hardback: '... a fully referenced and authoritative source for those who wish to understand the key issues of genomic imprinting ... this could prove an excellent start ... genomic (gametic) imprinting is not just a curiosity that is going to 'go away'; it goes to the very heart of the regulation of gene expression. This 1994 Nobel Symposium collection of papers is a first rate base from which to read some of the more recent papers ... and then follow the story unfold'. Marcus Pembrey, Journal of Medical Ethics

Review of the hardback: '... a valuable resource for everyone interested in the field of genomic imprinting'. K. Devriendt, Genetic Counselling

Review of the hardback: '... good to have on your bookshelf if your laboratory or institution has an interest in imprinting, as a quick reference to a rapidly expanding field'. Keith Brown, Heredity

Review of the hardback: '... a good introduction to the subject'. Carmen Sapienza
