Twenty–eight articles by leading international researchers survey the statics and dynamics of chromatin architecture and highlight their current research in the field. The collection provides the first synopsis of all aspects of eukaryotic gene architecture and covers animal, human, and plant genes. Among the topics covered are the structure and topology of DNA, the architecture of genes in their normal and transgenic environments, the structure and role of various nuclear proteins, and chromatic architecture and chromosome topology. Extended, up–to–date bibilographies allow the reader to pursue specific topics in greater depth. The book is based on papers presented at the First International Symposium on the Chromatin Structure of Genes held in Frankfurt am Main in 1986.
