Insect Molecular Genetics: An Introduction to Principles and Applications, Fourth Edition provides the most recent advances and research in entomology and molecular genetics. It demonstrates the role molecular genetics plays in pest management and basic insect biology research, assuming readers have little to no prior knowledge on the subject. This newest edition features updates on the latest trends and discoveries, such as CRISPR-Cas genome editing methods, epigenetic inheritance, DNA amplification techniques, and molecular phylogenies. Certain chapter topics, including P-element mediated transformation and insect population molecular techniques, are condensed and updated to create a more comprehensive and concise read.
This foundational text is a valuable resource for entomologists with limited training in molecular genetics, and will be an ideal source for pest control advisors who need to understand the vocabulary and methods that are used to solve entomological issues.
Contains a new chapter on CRISPR-CAS and the basic biology of these systems related to arthropods
Includes new and updated methods and examples of insect gene modification, along with discussions of regulatory and ethical issues
Offers compiled and comprehensive terminology at the introductory level
Illustrated with diagrams and tables to further explain key topics and concepts
