In this era of accelerated discovery and prolific output, Molecular Genetics of Sex Determination keeps readers abreast of this fields fast-moving biology. Its chapters were completed by experts in eacharea only months before publication. The text is organized into two parts. First, it reviews the basic biology of sex determination and summarizes ground-breaking work in mouse, marsupial, and Drosophila systems. Second, it covers current human genetics, clinical studies, and the syndromes of abnormal sex differentiation.

With chapters by preeminent reproductive biologists, this is a capital work. Ohno's law is described by Ohno; the Lyon hypothesis, by Lyon; Sinclair tells how he cloned the testis-determining gene; and so on. Molecular Genetics of Sex Determination is authoritative, comprehensive, and current. It is prime reading for geneticists, developmental biologists, graduate students in these and related fields, clinical researchers, physicians, and medical students.

  • Reviews the genetics of sex determination in 19 up-to-date chapters
  • Features research on sex chromosomes and sex-determining genes
  • Includes abnormalities of sex determination and clinical genetics
  • Written by scientists who pioneered work in this field


Book News
This current and authoritative volume is organized into two parts. The first includes chapters on the basic biology of sex determination and summarizes the pioneering work in mice, marsupials, and Drosophila . The second part includes chapters on human genetics and clinical aspects, and covers the various syndromes of abnormal sex differentiation. The contributors are those closest to the achievements described, e.g., Ohno on Ohno's Law, Lyon on the Lyon hypothesis, and Sinclair on cloning the SRY sex-determining gene. The articles were completed within months of publication, and the references are comprehensive and up-to-date, including the literature of 1992 and most of 1993. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc.
