Chromosome biology has been brought to a golden age by phenomenal advanced in molecular genetics and techniques. This is true in the plant arena, and it is becoming increasingly true in animal studies, where chromosomes are more difficult to work with. With advanced knowledge of transformation, scientists can tell exactly where a new element enters a chromosome. Conversely, molecular biologists can make large mistakes if they do not understand the behavior of chromosomes. Written by internationally recognized experts in the field, this book is the most authoritative work on the subject to date. Students of genetics, crop science and plant breeding, entomology, animal science, and related fields will benefit from this comprehensive and practical textbook.The radioactively labeled a#39;H-RNA probe was prepared from heterochromatic DNA sequences isolated from cereal rye (Secale cereale) (Appels et al., 1978). ... polytene chromosomes (top photograph) and normal mitotic chromosomes ( lower diagram). ... such as rye (Secale), which shows pronounced heterochromatic blocks in mitotic prophase chromosomes using only phase- contrast microscopy.
