Overview

The processes of DNA recombination and repair are vital to cell integrity -- an error can lead to a disease such as cancer. These processes are therefore expanding areas of research and are now being taught in many undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Filling a need for timely and accurate information on the subject, this book studies the cellular processes involved in DNA recombination and repair by highlighting a selection of issues currently at the forefront of understanding. Chapters address genome integrity as it is important to health, and the authors include the relevance of DNA repair and recombination to ill health and cancer in particular. As well, molecular pathways of apoptosis induction are clearly referenced whenever necessary. DNA Recombination and Repair will undoubtedly benefit advanced students and professionals and will likely interest anyone intrigued by the processes of DNA.
