478 pages




Geneticists, entomologists, and other medical and biological scientists describe laboratory protocols for the cytogenetic investigating genomes of insects and other arthropods. Each chapter demonstrates approaches to tissue dissection, chromosome preparation, fluorescence in situ hybridization, and imaging. They cover tephritid fruit flies, Hessian flies, tsetse flies, mosquitoes, beetles, silk moths, parasitoid wasps, bedbugs, aphids, spittlebugs, grasshoppers, and ticks. Because the species have been studied cytogenetically, they can serve as model species in efforts to map genomic sequences chromosomally. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
