DNA: Recombination, Interactions and Repair presents the result of the proceedings of the FEBS Symposium on DNA, which focuses on DNA recombination in vivo and in vitro, DNA interactions, and DNA repair. This book presents problems involving topics on DNA that have been studied intensively using methodological approaches and developed techniques for cloning, physical mapping, and sequencing of DNA. This text also notes that this approach has provided a basis for further genetic studies at the molecular level. The problems related to the genetic complexity of higher organisms and the relationships between the structure of genetic material and the regulation of expression of genetic information, as well as genetic engineering of micro-organisms, which become amenable to experimental investigation, are also presented in this text. This book notes that these problems are closely associated with endeavors to understand the molecular foundations of living processes to create a rational basis for treating genetic and viral diseases. This text will be a valuable source of information for students studying in the field of genetics, especially those conducting extensive research on DNA.
