By Jeffrey C. Hall, Jay C. Dunlap (Eds.)

This quantity of Advances in Genetics illustrates the sequence target to submit the most up-tp-date, up to date reports within the box of molecular and human genetics. This quantity deviates from prior volumes in that it focuses exclusively at the polytene chromosome. In a great and exhaustive evaluate, I.F. Zhimulev illustrates the use and serve as of the polytene chromosome in 3 components: morphology and constitution, association and useful position of the heterochromaticregions, and the transcription styles and replication of the chromosome. To top illustrate the breadth and scope of analysis, Dr. Zhimulev contains greater than a hundred figures and greater than 2900 references particularly appropriate to the polytene chromosome. Key gains * provides technical and old overviews of molecular biology utilized to sickness detection, analysis, and therapy * Chronicles the continued explosion of data in molecular genetic drugs via highlighting present techniques to realizing human affliction * files the revolution in human and molecular genetics resulting in a brand new box of drugs
