Description

This volume of Advances in Genetics furthers the serial's goal of presenting topics of interest to both human and molecular geneticists. Topics of interest in this volume include: Expression patterns of regulatory genes and the role they play in development Hereditary ataxias and specific disease states where the genetic defect has been identified

Minute genes, their mutations, and their molecular function in Drosophila The genetics and molecular biology of rhythm mutants and clock molecules Double strand breaks in DNA and their repair mechanisms

Key Features

@introbul:Key Features @bul:* Expression patterns of regulatory genes and the role they play in development

  • Hereditary ataxias and specific disease states where the genetic defect has been identified
  • Minute genes, their mutations, and their molecular function in Drosophila
  • The genetics and molecular biology of rhythm mutants and clock molecules
  • Double-strand breaks in DNA and their repair mechanisms and lack of repair mechanisms resulting in human disorders

Readership

Graduate students and researchers in all facets of genetics, including 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
