Genome Research in Molecular Medicine and Virology
Reviews the application of the techniques of molecular genetics and molecular biology to biomedical research. Among the subjects discussed are normal and abnormal chromosomes, cancer, hereditary disorders, model genome systems and molecular virology. This volume emphasizes: genome research - DNA sequences and gene structure of chromosomes; molecular medicine - gene therapy, cancer research, oncogenes, hereditary disorders, normal DNA and model systems; virology - retroviruses, herpesviruses and poliovirus.
