|Summary:||About the Book: Endeavours to make this seemingly difficult subject understandable and enjoyable for the readers. It provides an account of classical and modern genetics with new developments in the field. The scope of each chapter has been broadened enough to provide information on historical landmarks as well as of new facts from current issues of major journals. Chapters on gene transcription, regulation, human genetics, recombinant DNA and genomics have been given special attention to create awareness about future areas in this growing field. Experimental work is supported by methodologies and illustrations. The text is useful for students pursuing courses in cell and molecular biology, biophysics, anthropology and agricultural sciences at universities, medical colleges and similar institutions. Contents: The Pre-Mendelian Era and Mendelism Interaction of Genes Environment and Gene Expression Quantitative or Polygenic Inheritance Multiple Alleles Cell Division and Chromosome Theory of Inheritance Chi-Square Test and Probability Linkage, Recombination and Gene Mapping Extranuclear Transmission of Traits The Genetic Control of Sex Variations in Chromosome Number Variations in Chromosome Structure Nature of the Genetic Material The Structure and Replication of DNA Gene Transcription and Translation into Proteins Genetic Regulation in Prokaryotes and Eukaryotes Genetics of Bacteria Genetics of Viruses The Eukaryotic Chromosome Mutations Human Genetics Fine Structure of the Gene Recombinant DNA Technology Applications of Recombinant DNA Technology Genomics Populations and Gene Frequencies Origin of Life-Evolution of Man.|
