The study of gene action by Bruce Wallace( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Study of Gene Action, Bruce Wallace and Joseph O. Falkinham III review the nature of the problems that confronted geneticists in successive eras. New technologies, developed to solve the problems, inevitably stimulated an awareness of subtler problems that awaited still more sophisticated technologies." "Although the physical nature of the gene was essentially clear by the late 1950s, the study of gene action, particularly during the development of higher organisms, is ongoing. Wallace and Falkinham explain how intimately progress has relied on technology. Initially limited to an examination of external features and subsequently to classical genetics and cytogenetic analyses, research was revolutionized by Watson and Crick's discovery of the double helix structure of DNA. The domain of genetics, scientists then understood, became inseparable from chemistry, biochemistry, and molecular biology."--Jacket

The first volume of Evolutionary Bio/ogy was published eleven years ago. Since that time eleven volumes and one supplement have appeared. As stated in earlier prefaces, we are continuing the focus of this series on critical reviews, commentaries, original papers, and controversies in evolu tionary biology. lt is our aim to publish papers primarily of greater length than normally published by society journals and quarterlies. We therefore invite colleagues to submit chapters that fall within the focus and standards of Evolutionary Bio/ogy. The Editors vii Contents 1.
