BISAC: MED107000

“Advances in Genetics Research” presents original research results on the leading edge of genetics discovery. Each article has been carefully selected in an attempt to present substantial research results across a broad spectrum. In this continuing series compilation, the authors present and discuss the development of multifunctional plasmids for diverse biotechnological applications; fragile x syndrome-associated language phenotypes; study of the fmr1 gene structure among women with ovarian dysfunction from the Basque country; chromatin structure and epigenetics; the evolution of mammalian x chromosomes and x chromosome inactivation; modifying effect of smoking on the association between SLE and the genetic polymorphisms involved in ROS production; therapeutic approaches to fragile x syndrome; genetic diversity and phylogeny of wild specie teosinte within genera Zea.
