Genetics and Biogenesis of Mitochondria and Chloroplasts
by C. William Birky, et al.
Publisher: The Ohio State University Press 1975
Number of pages: 384
A collection of papers devoted to the study of genetics and cell biology. The genetics of chloroplasts and mitochondrial inheritance have only fairly recently come to represent a major preoccupation of both molecular and cell biologists, who have been prompted, since the discovery of organelle DMA in the early 1960s, to probe ever more deeply into the energy-producing centers of the cell.
