About this book


This book is concerned with the genetic consequences of nu­ cleotide pool imbalance. There are a number of ways in which this state can be achieved and the majority of papers in this volume de­ scribe the effects of nucleotide pool imbalance on DNA replication and repair, and the induction of gene mutations in various organisms. This book grew out of a Conference on "Genetic Consequences of Nu­ cleotide Pool Imbalance" which was held at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences on May 9-11, 1983. The Organizing Com­ mittee consisted of Drs. Diana Anderson (BIBRA), Robert Haynes (York University), Bernard Kunz (NIEHS), Barry Glickman (NIEHS), and Frederick J. de Serres (NIEHS), Chairman. The meeting was org- ized by the staff of the Office of the Associate Director for Genetics and was financed solely by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.
