The study of gene action by Bruce Wallace( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Study of Gene Action, Bruce Wallace and Joseph O. Falkinham III review the nature of the problems that confronted geneticists in successive eras. New technologies, developed to solve the problems, inevitably stimulated an awareness of subtler problems that awaited still more sophisticated technologies." "Although the physical nature of the gene was essentially clear by the late 1950s, the study of gene action, particularly during the development of higher organisms, is ongoing. Wallace and Falkinham explain how intimately progress has relied on technology. Initially limited to an examination of external features and subsequently to classical genetics and cytogenetic analyses, research was revolutionized by Watson and Crick's discovery of the double helix structure of DNA. The domain of genetics, scientists then understood, became inseparable from chemistry, biochemistry, and molecular biology."--Jacket
Occurrence and distribution of human bacterial pathogens in Virginia surface waters by Stephen L Wendt( Book )

The ecology of mycobacteria by Jindrich Kazda( )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Detailed information dealing with the ecology of mycobacteria is derived from a variety of different scientific fields such as botany, biochemistry, genetics, immunology, microbiology and epidemiology. This is the first attempt to evaluate this information from an ecological point of view and to develop a strategy for the prevention of tuberculosis and other mycobacterioses based on the ecological behavior of mycobacteria, especially the potentially pathogenic species capable of either growth in the environment or provoking disease. Regarding the interests of the developing countries, special attention is paid to the ecology of Mycobacterium leprae and to the supporting effect of accompanying mycobacteria in its pathogenicity. On a more positive side, environmental mycobacteria play an important role in the ecology of moorland dragonflies. Such a book is needed for specialists working in the field of mycobacterial research, clinical laboratories, the public health service, food hygiene, the water industry and in general ecology
