Written and edited by experts in the field, 'Next-Generation Sequencing in Medicine' from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press examines next-generation sequencing technologies and their use, particularly in translational research. The contributors discuss the various sequencing platforms, their capabilities, and their applications in both research and clinical practice. The roles of next-generation sequencing in diagnosing autism and intellectual disabilities, monitoring cancers during disease progression, and determining the most appropriate drug treatments for patients are also covered.
For her new book, sociologist Danielle J. Lindemann, interviewed nearly one hundred commuter spouses -- couples who live apart in service to their dual careers -- to find out what this unique group might reveal about broader trends in marriage.
