Glossary of Genetics: Classical and Molecular
Springer Science & Business Media, Dec 6, 2012 - Science - 553 pages
The 5th edition of this successful Glossary has been completely revised, updated and supplemented by up-to-date terms used in genetic engineering and molecular genetics. Where necessary a short essay explaining an entry in more detail is added to the stated definition. Wherever possible, the author of an entry is mentioned and the respective publication cited. Cross references ease the orientation within the glossary.
"This excellent textbook should serve seasoned scientists as a feast for the mind and as a valuable work for graduate students. It is a true bargain..."(Quarterly Review of Biology) "By the very fact that this Glossary is now in its fifth edition, one can be assured of its usefulness... Highly recommended." (Australasian)
