The field under review is growing so rapidly that it is impossible to cover more than a sampling of recent papers in the allotted space. Important subjects such as the genetics and chemistry of viruses and certain topics in bacterial genetics have had to be omitted, while others have not received the treatment they deserve. Studies of a primarily biochemical nature in which mutants have been employed as tools have been reviewed, as is customary, although it is recognized that their genetic interest lies chiefly in their providing materials for the further study of gene action.
