This collection of six brief commentaries and eight articles describes work in plasmids, bacteriophages or viruses used in techniques that transport foreign genes into recipient cells. These "genetic vectors" include a functional replicator and contain a genetic marker, making it relatively easy to recognize them. They papers cover transcriptional profiling of cardiac development, genetic vectors and replication-incompetent adenoviral vectors in vaccination, recombinant retroviral vectors as model probes for antiviral screening studies, molecular approaches to study genotype-phenotype correlation in continuous gene disorders, bacterial artificial chromosome vectors, genetic vectors for Corynecbacterineae and emerging vectors and targeting methods for viral genetic therapy in gliomas. Articles include illustrations and the editor provides a subject index. Readers may prefer to use the abstracts rather than the preface for quick reviews.
