Insect Molecular Genetics, 2nd edition, is a succinct book that briefly introduces graduate and undergraduate students to molecular genetics and the techniques used in this well established and important discipline. The book is written for two converging audiences: those familiar with insects that need to learn about molecular genetics, and those that are familiar with molecular genetics but not familiar with insects. Thus, this book is intended to fill the gap between two audiences that share a common middle ground.

* Up-to-date references to important review articles, websites, and seminal citations in the disciplines

* Well crafted and instructive illustrations integral to explaining the techniques of molecular genetics

* Glossary of terms to help beginners learn the vocabulary of molecular biology

Author Biography: Marjorie A. Hoy, Insitute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, University of Florida, Gainesville, U.S.A.

Audience: Advanced undergraduates, beginning graduate students, faculty and researchers that need a primer of molecular genetics as it relates to entomology. Libraries at institutions with strong programs in entomology, pest control, biological control, insect pathology, and molecular genetics.

Editorial Reviews

An introduction to new molecular genetic techniques for students, researchers, and professional entomologists. Covers DNA and gene structure, replication, mutation, and recombination, eukaryotic DNA, cloning, sequencing and genome analysis, and applications to entomological problems such as sex determination, insect population ecology and evolution, and gene manipulations in pest management programs. Includes a glossary, and a timeline of events in the field. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
From the Publisher

Praise for the second edition:

"I enthusiastically recommend this book to any student or established researcher in need of an introduction to the molecular genetics of arthropods." -EXPERIMENTAL AND APPLIED ACAROLOGY (2003)
