Genes, Volume 6

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 1997 - Medical - 1260 pages
Rapid advances in the field of molecular genetics have occurred since Genes V was first published in 1993. Reflecting these advances, GENES VI has been thoroughly updated with the latest thinking and research in the field. The content of GENES VI has been extensively updated and restructured throughout. There are fewer tables and those that remain have been simplified. Many figures have been redrawn and many replaced to present key concepts more distinctly than ever before. With a revised full color design, dozens of new figures, a more extensive list of suggested readings, the support of companion CD-ROM software, and a 360-question problem set, this widely used volume provides the most current and comprehensive information available in genetics today.
