Documents the remarkable mobility of DNA in procaryotic and eucaryotic genomes: the ability of various DNA segments to move to new sites, to invert, and to undergo deletion or amplification, generally without the extensive DNA sequence homology needed for classical recombination. Seventy contributors explore the mechanisms of these rearrangements, how they are regulated, their biological consequences, and their potential use as research tools. For students and researchers of molecular genetics. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
