Overview

THE ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF SPORTS MEDICINE

This latest volume in the Encyclopaedia of Sports Medicine series, published under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee, is a landmark contribution to our understanding of the role of genes and genetics in sport and other physical activities. 

The book is designed to move readers from the basic science of genomics and genetics and the regulation of gene expression to thorough, clearly-written discussions of today’s most important topics and latest research, including the genetics of complex performance phenotypes, the contributions of small animal research, family and twin studies, and ethnic comparisons.  A final section addresses how specific genes and molecular markers impact endurance, strength and power, and responsiveness to specific conditioning programs. 

Authored by scientists whose work represents the leading edge in this rapidly-evolving field,  Genetic and Molecular Aspects of Sports Performance is an essential new reference for exercise scientists, researchers in genetics and genomics, and sports medicine specialists.
