Genetics Abstracts from ProQuest

The amalgamation of recombinant DNA technology with traditional genetics has sparked a proliferation of specialized journals and primary papers - heralding an era of immensely diversified research directions. Since recent studies have shown that research work conducted in one organism is relevant to many other experimental systems, scientists need a practical means for keeping up with wide-ranging findings that are important to their own studies. Genetics Abstracts provides that means, sifting the worldwide literature for significant advances as they happen and forging an essential link among different systems. Its unique blend of articles gives readers the widest possible perspective of genetics as a whole, from microbes to plants to humans. The burgeoning field of molecular genetics is emphasized, with important information on all aspects of DNA, differentiation and development, RNA, protein synthesis, ribosomes, nuclear proteins and chromatin, enzymes, and gene regulation. An essential resource for scientists across the life sciences, Genetics Abstracts will prove particularly useful to researchers and institutions directly and indirectly involved in the Human Genome Project.

Major areas of coverage include:

  • Molecular Genetics
  • Chromosomes
  • Extrachromosomal Genetics
  • Cell Cycle
  • Chemical Mutagenesis
  • Radiation Genetics
  • Immunogenetics
  • Developmental Genetics
  • Evolutionary Genetics
