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.

This book's nine essays probe the potential social uses and abuses of detailed genetic information. Lucid and wide-ranging, these contributions will provoke discussion among bioethicists, legal scholars, and policy makers.

This is an introduction to the field of population genetics, the branch of evolutionary biology concerned with the genetic structure of populations and how it changes through time. You need to know some basic algebra and probability theory.

This review provides an overview of fundamental aspects of oocyte and early embryonic development and the interference and genetic approaches that have provided access to maternally regulated aspects of vertebrate development.
