Overview

Developed as an introduction to new molecular genetic techniques, Insect Molecular Genetics also provides literature, terminology, and additional sources of information to students, researchers, and professional entomologists.
Although most molecular genetics studies have employed Drosophila, this book applies the same techniques to other insects, including pest insects of economic importance.
As a text, as a reference, as a primer, and as a review of a vast and growing literature, Insect Molecular Genetics is a valuable addition to the libraries of entomologists, geneticists, and molecular biologists.
Features offered by this unique reference source:
* Detailed illustrations
* Suggested readings at the end of each chapter
* Glossary of molecular genetic terms
