Advances in Genetics / Edition 1

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 affirm 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: Rapidly Evolving Rab GTPase Paralogs and Reproductive Isolation in Drosophila, The Neurospora crassa Circadian Clock, Involvement of Homologous Recombination in Carcinogenesis, Mutational Analysis of the Ribosome, Application of Genomics to Molecular Breeding of Wheat and Barley.
