9780124158740: Insect Molecular Genetics, Third Edition: An Introduction to Principles and Applications

Insect Molecular Genetics, Third Edition, summarizes and synthesizes two rather disparate disciplines?entomology and molecular genetics. This volume provides an introduction to the techniques and literature of molecular genetics; defines terminology; and reviews concepts, principles, and applications of these powerful tools. The world of insect molecular genetics, once dominated by Drosophila, has become much more diverse, especially with the sequencing of multiple arthropod genomes (from spider mites to mosquitoes). This introduction includes discussion of honey bees, mosquitoes, flour beetles, silk moths, fruit flies, aphids, house flies, kissing bugs, cicadas, butterflies, tsetse flies and armyworms.

This book serves as both a foundational text and a review of a rapidly growing literature. With fully revised and updated chapters, the third edition will be a valuable addition to the personal libraries of entomologists, geneticists, and molecular biologists.

  • Up-to-date references to important review articles, websites, and seminal citations in the disciplines
  • Well crafted and instructive illustrations integral to explaining the techniques of molecular genetics
  • Glossary of terms to help beginners learn the vocabulary of molecular biology

Review:

"...a fantastic textbook for an introductory insect molecular genetics course. I would also recommend it to new and established researchers that need an introduction to, or need to brush up on, current molecular methods in arthropod genetics." --Bulletin of the ESC

"It is both a genetics bible and a superlative homage to the wonderful diversity of insect lifestyles and the underlying genetics that drive them. It is quite simply a stunning and gargantuan work of art." --The Quarterly Review of Biology

"It is therefore comprehensive in every sense of the term and via its clever organization takes readers on a white-knuckle ride through not only all of modern insect biology and genetics but also the new -omics techniques that now promise to enrich that biology. It should be useful to everyone from the aging professor (myself included) to the budding and more youthful student. It is both a genetics bible and a superlative homage to the wonderful diversity of insect lifestyles and the underlying genetics that drive them. It is quite simply a stunning and gargantuan work of art." --Richard H. French-Constant, Centre for Ecology & Conservation and Biosciences, University of Exeter, Falmouth, UK

"Hoy presents this third edition of her molecular entomology textbook, with updated material on genetic modification, sequencing, and symbiosis. The author notes that although the title refers to insects, other arthropods such as ticks and mites are increasingly contributing to related knowledge." --Reference & Research Book News, October 2013
