CABI Book Chapter

Forest genetics.

Book cover for Forest genetics.

Description

This book, which contains 20 chapters, integrates the varied subdisciplines of genetics and their applications in gene conservation, tree improvement and biotechnology. Topics covered include: genetic variation in natural forests, the application of genetics in tree improvement and breeding programmes, and genomic sequences and molecular technologies. This book will be a valuable resource for stud...

Chapter 3 (Page no: 35)

Transmission genetics - chromosomes, recombination and linkage.

This chapter explores how the genetic material is inherited from generation to generation and the changes in the organization of the genetic material that occur between generations. It is organized into three major sections: (1) Mendelian genetics; (2) transmission and inheritance of chromosomes; and (3) extensions of Mendel's laws.
