Meiosis is a monograph focused on meiosis-specific functions. It presents a discussion on the genetic regulations of meiosis and aims to direct readers on future research by reporting a number of studies on progress.
The text is divided into four parts and consists of 12 chapters. After an introduction to the meiotic process, the first part of the book narrates the genetic transmission and the evolution of reproduction and parthenogenesis. The second part presents the concepts of recombination, the heteroduplex model, and the genetic control of biochemical events in meiotic recombination. The third part covers the information about the chiasmata and synaptonemal complex, including the Rabl orientation. The text is then concluded by the fourth part that covers the biochemical basis of meiosis.
The book is an excellent reference for undergraduate and graduate students in biological courses, specifically in genetics, biochemistry, and cell, developmental, and molecular biology. Lecturers, researchers, and other professionals in the same field will also find this book useful.
