Under the leadership of Dr. Jeffrey C. Hall and Dr. Jay C. Dunlap, Advances in Genetics covers all genetic systems-from prokaryotic to human-with an eye toward identifying emerging problems as they coalesce. Volumes present both synoptic and topical reviews in a comprehensible, informative, and insightful manner. Articles range from detailed and discursive to brief and sharply focused, as benefits the problem under study.
Founded in 1946 by Dr. Miloslav Demerc, this serial publication continues to be critical reading for researchers who need current overviews of areas outside their specialty and for students who need comprehensive introduction to topics genetic research.
Key Features
* Under new editorial direction beginning with this volume
* Publishes comprehensive and timely chapters of genetic
* Delves into genetic phenomena at a molecular level
* Ties together related issues in cell and developmental biology and neurobiology

Industry Reviews

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

From the Review of previous Volumes "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." --SCIENCE

"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." --SCIENCE PROGRESS

"This text would be of interest to geneticists, botanists, developmental biologists, molecular biologists, and other interested individuals." --BIOLOGICAL ABSTRACTS
