Description

This book describes the structure, gene content, expression, evolution and genetics of chloroplast and mitochondrial genomes. Explanations of the use of chloroplast and mitochondial genomes in phylogenetic studies as well as descriptions of such phenomena as intron splicing, mobile genetic elements and RNA editing are included, to show how the study of these genomes is now contributing broadly to important biological problems.show more

Review quote

The advantage of this monograph is parallel explanation of genetics of chloroplasts and mitochondria, in plant, microbial and animal tissues. Another merits of the book are the voluminous lists of full references accompanying each chapter and a detailed subject index. Z. Sestak, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Photosynthetica, 1996, vol. 32, no. 2show more
