Ram Verma has assembled ten distinguished contributors to survey what is currently known about the relationship of the structure of DNA to its role in the function and expression of genes. The crucial role of heterochromatin in the organization of chromosomes is thoroughly explored in this resulting landmark edited volume. Cytogeneticists and other geneticists, molecular biologists, cytologists, biochemists and their advanced students will also find this an invaluable reference source.
"The material included in Heterochromatin is impressively comprehensive and provides timely, authoritative information that would otherwise be difficult to obtain." BioScience
