"Outstanding both in variety and in the quality of its contributions."

"Can be highly recommended to geneticists, and biologists in general...will prove to be of high importance for the development of the science of genetics."
"The high standards of the Advances series of Academic Press are now almost taken for granted. The new volume matches up to the revolutionary and all-embracing developments in genetics that have occurred over the last few years."
"This text would be of interest to geneticists, botanists, developmental biologists, molecular biologists, and other interested individuals."
