Detailing all aspects of chromosome biology, this book illustrates the importance of cytogenetics in the fast changing world of modern biology. Chromosomes are often overlooked in molecular studies, but increasingly it is being shown that they play a fundamental role in gene expression. Molecular biology and cytogenetics, once regarded as separate areas of study, are now realized to be interdependent subjects.
