About this Item

8vo. 215-228 pp. Figs. Self wraps. Ownership rubber stamp of Norman Horowitz. FINE. Demerec played a vital role in the development of genetics. In his early career he showed that a gene is a unit structure, and "that genes play a very important role in individual cells of higher organisms." McGraw-Hill, p. 135. Importantly, "Demerec proved for the first time that genetic mechanisms were responsible for bacterial resistance to antibiotics, and his research revealed two important principles to be followed in antibiotics therapy. the initial doses of these drugs should be large enough to prevent the occurrence of 'second step' (highly) resistant bacterial mutants; and the drugs should be used in combination rather than singly." McGraw-Hill, p. 136. Many of the papers bear the rubber stamp of pioneer Caltech geneticist Norman Horowitz. WITH: DEMEREC. "Reaction of Genes of Escherichia Coli to Certain Mutagens." Offprint from: Symposia of the Society for Experimental Biology, no. VII, 1953. 8vo. 43-54 pp. Self wraps. Full list available on request. McGraw-Hill, McGraw-Hill Modern Men of Science, vol. 1, pp. 135-136. Bookseller Inventory # S8527
