Genes and Obesity book cover

Genes and Obesity

A number of genes have been identified that are associated with an increased body mass index (BMI), the standard measurement of obesity. By analyzing these genes, researchers hope to gain a better understanding of what causes obesity and develop ways to tackle the problem. The study of genes and obesity could lead to new treatments. This volume reviews the latest developments in the field.

Audience

Researchers, professors and graduate students in biochemistry, chemistry, molecular biology, biotechnology, and medicine.

Reviews

  • PRAISE FOR THE SERIES:
    "Full of interest not only for the molecular biologist-for whom the numerous references will be invaluable-but will also appeal to a much wider circle of biologists, and in fact to all those who are concerned with the living cell."--British Medical Journal
