About the book

Cytology and Genetics covers aspects of Cell Science i.e. Basic and Applied, along with their modern developments including cell cycle and check-point, cell organelles, with special emphasis on chromosomes, their structure, chemical details and behaviour as well as their role in evolution and plant improvement. The Genetics covering Mendelian and Post-Mendelian developments as well as extra nuclear inheritance and sex-determination, development of gene concept & structure, genetic code, gene expression and gene manipulation are extensively covered. Different steps of recombinant DNA technology and genetic engineering including cloning, genomic libraries, genetransfer and transgenesis are presented with DNA finger-printing for the analysis of genetic diversity, tissue culture and cell fusion techniques.
