Description

Advances in Genetics continues to present articles that are of interest to both human and molecular geneticists. Volume 37 offers a single chapter, written by I.F. Zhimulev, in which Dr. Zhimulev undertakes thelaborious task of presenting an in-depth and detailed account of the various aspects of heterochromatin organization in the mitotic and interphase polytene chromosomes. It also includes details concerning the organization of heterochromatin at high resolution are also analyzed.

Readership

Graduate students and researchers in all facets of genetics: molecular, cell, and developmental biology, as well as human genetic medicine.

Reviews

@from:Praise for the Series @qu:"Outstanding both in variety and in the quality of its contributions." @source:--NATURE @qu:"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." @source:--SCIENCE @qu:"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." @source:--SCIENCE PROGRESS @qu:"This text would be of interest to geneticists, botanists, developmental biologists, molecular biologists, and other interested individuals." @source:--BIOLOGICAL ABSTRACTS
