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 review provides a simplified exposition of the concept and mathematics of Quasi-Linkage Equilibrium (QLE) which is central to the statistical description of genotypes in sexual populations. We discuss under what circumstances QLE is applicable.

Synthetic biology is being pursued overwhelmingly for beneficial purposes ranging from reducing the burden of disease to improving agricultural yields to remediating pollution. This book explores and envisions potential misuses of synthetic biology.
