Chromosomes Today volume 14 records the plenary proceedings of the 14th International Chromosome Conference, presenting an overview of the current concerns in plant, animal and human cytogenetics. This volume provides up-to-date information regarding relevant aspects on structure, function and evolution of chromosomes, meiosis, sex chromosomes, and cancer cytogenetics. It contains invited contributions from some of the world's leading experts in the field. The latest volume in this well-established series will be of interest to a wide spectrum of students and researchers in biological sciences, genetics and medicine.

From the reviews of the first edition:

"Chromosomes Today contains the conference proceedings from plenary sessions delivered at the 14th International Chromosome Conference ... . the papers collected together in this volume are up-to-date and informative on many levels i.e. technical advances, evolution, chromosome behaviour and theoretical. The sections cover such diverse topics ... . Indeed, the whole volume is very strong on information and data concerning mammals and birds. ... it would make an interesting addition to any lab library but would also make an excellent supplement for undergraduate teaching ... ." (Joanna M. Bridger, Genetical Research, Cambs, Vol. 85, 2005)

"The Chromosomes Today series of books records the proceedings of the International chromosome conferences. ... the volume records the plenary proceedings of the 14th conference presenting an overview of the current concerns in plant, animal and human cytogenetics. ... It is a nicely produced hardback volume on good quality paper with well-reproduced illustrations. ... It is nice to have it on the shelf and I shall dip into it from time to time." (Rod Howell, Human Genetics, Vol. 117 (6), 2005)
