Biochemical Aspects of Genetics


It would be impossible, in the time and space available, to cover all of the noteworthy advances that have been made in biochemical genetics during the past year. We have, therefore, selected for review a number of topics that are especially active at the moment and that promise to yield important new results in the near future. At the same time, we have tried to avoid duplicating the material of other chapters in this volume which are germane to biochemical genetics. We refer, in particular, to the chapters on Metabolism of Nucleic Acids (Macromolecular DNA and RNA); Nucleic Acids and Protein Biosynthesis; The Basic Proteins of Cell Nuclei; and Chemistry of Differentiation in Lower Organisms. The reader should consult these reviews, as well as the present one, for a fuller view of current activities in this field.
