Genetics and Molecular Biology of Rhythms in Drosophila and Other Insects by Jeffrey C. Hall
Book DescriptionBiological rhythms, such as the sleep-wake cycle or circadian clock, are an intriguing aspect of biology. The regulation of daily rhythmicity has long been a mystery, up until the mid-1980's when a key gene in the fruitfly, Drosophila melanogaster, was molecularly identified. Genetic and molecular chronobiology of Drosophila has been a driving force in this field of inquiry ever since. This book describes and evaluates all of the studies of this sort, discussing the manner by which these investigations have spread out in various directions of rhythmic biology, including genetic and molecular approaches used on other insect species. * Discusses rhythm genetics in insects, from early investigations to current state-of-the-art * Presents all relevant mutants and genes * Highlights the mystery of the "clock mechanism" in full detail including the remaining puzzles to be solved

Tissue-Specific Vascular Endothelial Signals and Vector Targeting, Hardback (October 2010)
The field of genetics is rapidly evolving, and new medical breakthroughs are occurring as a result of advances in knowledge gained from genetics research. This title includes important reviews of the interest to geneticists and their colleagues in affiliated disciplines, providing researchers an overview and synthesis of the findings in the area.
Advances in Genetics, Hardback (November 2009)
RNA interference (RNAi) is a mechanism that inhibits gene expression at the stage of translation or by hindering the transcription of specific genes. This book includes reviews of the broadest interest to geneticists and their colleagues in affiliated disciplines, providing researchers an overview and synthesis of various findings in the area.
Homology Effects, Hardback (April 2002)» View all books by Jeffrey C. Hall
Intends to introduce newcomers to the field of homology effects. This title covers such topics as dosage compensation, X-inactivation, imprinting, paramutation, homology-dependent gene silencing, transvection, pairing-sensitive silencing, nuclear organization of chromosomes, DNA repair, quelling, RIP, and RNAi and antisense biology.
