Function of the Genetic Material Organization and Function of the Eukaryotic Genome

  • F. Herzfeld
Part of the Progress in Botany / Fortschritte der Botanik book series (BOTANY, volume 38)


Considerable progress has been achieved by geneticists and molecular biologists in unravelling the structure and function of eukaryotic genes. These investigations have concentrated on a few organisms, primarily animals, e.g. Drosophila. Thus, in our conclusions we depend very often on results from zoological objects, yet many indications are in favor of their rather general significance, therefore review of these facts is indicated even in a botanical periodical.
