The Molecular Basis of Viral Replication by Milton W. Taylor, Howard V. Hershey (auth.), R. Perez

By Milton W. Taylor, Howard V. Hershey (auth.), R. Perez Bercoff (eds.)

the discovery of the "splicing" of the gene transcripts, the checklist would come with the total molecular genetics of the lambda bacteriophage, the notions of "promotor," "repressor," and "integration," the invention of the opposite move of genetic details, the very life of oncogenes, the S'-terminal "cap" struc­ ture of eukaryotic mRNAs, ... Electronmicroscopy, ultracentrifugation and tissue tradition have been the landmarks at the manner of the younger technology. in past times few years, even if, a tremendous (and now not so silent) revolution happened: recombinant DNA expertise with all its may perhaps entered in our laboratories, and restrict mapping of cloned genomes and sequencing gels have changed plaque counting and sucrose gradients. the hot suggestions have made it attainable to "dissect" the total genome of a scourge on the molecular point, and reports that will were dreamt of simply within the mid-seventies turned the typical experiments of our days. With new perception into the constitution of viral genomes, and a deeper figuring out of the mechanisms that control their expression, our view of viruses was once absolute to switch: this quantity bears witness to this striking advance.
