Advances in Genetics increases its focus on modern human genetics and its relation to medicine with the merger of this long-standing serial with Molecular Genetic Medicine.This merger affirms our commitment to publish important reviews of the broadest interest to geneticists and their colleagues in affiliated disciplines. This volume of Advances in Genetics contains articles on targeted expression of tetanus toxin; germ-line transformants spreading out to many insect species; genes mediating sex-specific behaviors in Drosophila; and evolutionary analyses of genes and their functional implications.

PRAISE FOR THE SERIES
"Outstanding both in variety and in the quality of its contributions."
-NATURE
"Can be highly recommended to geneticists, and biologists in general...will prove to be of high importance for the development of the science of genetics."
-SCIENCE
"The high standards of the Advances series of Academic Press are now almost taken for granted..."
-SCIENCE PROGRESS
