    The revolution in genetic mapping technology and the advent of whole genome sequences has turned quantitative genetics into one of the fastest growing areas of biology. Quantitative Genetics & Genome Analysis is part of a suite of programmes offering specialist routes in Animal Breeding & Genetics, Evolutionary Genetics, or Human Complex Trait Quantitative genetics refers to the study of inheritance of traits whose phenotypes show more or less continuous distributions. There is no compelling reason for distinguishing among related terms such as ‘biometrical genetics’, ‘statistical genetics’, nor, in some cases, ‘population genetics’.

      Lynch and Walsh set out to combine in a single definitive text the diverse applications of quantitative genetics to plant and animal breeding, human genetics, and evolutionary biology. Genetics and analysis of quantitative traits is the first of what will now be two volumes; the second will cover Evolution and selection of quantitative Coverage includes: basic genetics, molecular biology, genomics, cytogenetics, immunogenetics, population genetics, quantitative genetics, biotechnology, and the use of molecular tools in the control of inherited disorders.
