Series: Advances in Genetics Research
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 most recent Y chromosome progress within the main fields of genetics; male infertility associated with TTTY gene family deletions in the Y chromosome; genetic diversity assessment by random amplified polymorphic DNA; the effect of habitat fragmentation on genetic diversity; the use of HeLa cells as a model for studying DNA damage and repair; the molecular genetics of polycythemia vera; recent advances and molecular background of microRNAs in disease; papaya viral diseases; phylogenetics and phylogeography of large neotropical rodents by means of mitochondrial genes; and omics technologies applied to prokaryotes.
