By Jeffrey C. Hall, Jay C. Dunlap (Eds.)

This quantity of Advances in Genetics illustrates the sequence objective to post the most up-tp-date, up to date stories within the box of molecular and human genetics. This quantity deviates from prior volumes in that it focuses exclusively at the polytene chromosome. In a good and exhaustive overview, I.F. Zhimulev illustrates the use and serve as of the polytene chromosome in 3 components: morphology and constitution, association and practical position of the heterochromaticregions, and the transcription styles and replication of the chromosome. To top illustrate the breadth and scope of analysis, Dr. Zhimulev contains greater than a hundred figures and greater than 2900 references in particular suitable to the polytene chromosome. Key good points * provides technical and old overviews of molecular biology utilized to affliction detection, prognosis, and remedy * Chronicles the ongoing explosion of data in molecular genetic medication by way of highlighting present methods to knowing human affliction * records the revolution in human and molecular genetics resulting in a brand new box of medication

The basic question is, How does a sequence of only four different DNA bases in a gene direct the synthesis of a protein chain comprising 20 different amino acids? This paradoxical problem once led biologists to conclude that DNA could not be the genetic material because it was structurally too simple to encode chemically more complex proteins. The solution to this “coding” problem is that each amino acid is specified by a combination of three contiguous bases. The code relating the sequence of bases in RNA to the sequence of amino acids in a protein is referred to as the genetic code.

This view of development as a progressively hardening plastic leads to two key questions: (1) How are differences in gene expression generated during development? (2) How do differences in gene expression alter the developmental potential of cells? One important mechanism by which cells acquire and maintain distinct developmental potentials is by communicating with one another. Cellular communication may create a difference between initially equivalent cells, or it may exaggerate subtle preexisting differences between two cells.

As shown in this and subsequent chapters, there are several reasons to clone a gene. One great benefit of cloning a gene is that one can determine its DNA base sequence. Knowing the DNA sequence of a gene, in turn, permits deduction of the amino acid sequence of the protein product of that gene using the universal genetic 1.
