Molecular Genetics of Recombination

This paintings deals a desirable perception right into a an important genetic strategy. Recombination is, without difficulty, some of the most very important issues in modern biology. This booklet is a wholly finished therapy of the topic, summarizing all present perspectives at the subject and while placing them into context.

Zugang zu humangenetischen Ressourcen indigener Völker Lateinamerikas: Eine Stakeholderanalyse

María Cristina Blohm untersucht die Problematik des Zugangs und der Nutzung humangenetischer Ressourcen Indigener Lateinamerikas und stellt auf der foundation des Stakeholderansatzes Lösungsansätze vor, welche die fundamentale Grundrechte und Grundfreiheiten des Menschen sowie die bioethischen Grundprinzipien für populationsbezogene Forschungsorganisationen berücksichtigen.

MOLECULAR CLONING OF THE HUMAN CYTOMEGALOVIRUS GENOME (STRAIN AD169) 1 Joyce C. Tamashiro and Deborah H. Spector Department of Biology, C-016; University of California, San Diego; La Jolla, CA 92093 ABSTRACT Human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV), one of the herpesviruses, is medically significant both as a cause of birth defects and as a source of problems in immunosuppressed individuals. Because the virus is highly cellassociated, it is difficult to obtain large quantities of pure viral DNA. For this reason we have sought to construct a cloned library of the HCMV genome to aid in further studies of the molecular biology of HCMV infections.

Viral DNA for the cloning was obtained from a low multiplicity infection of human embryonic lung (HEL) cells with a plaquepurified stock of the HCMV strain AD169. We routinely use low multiplicity infections in the propagation of virus to minimize the number of defective particles produced. The extracellular virus was harvested from the medium and isolated by centrifugation through a pre-formed cesium chloride gradient. After treatment with SDS and pronase, the DNA was purified twice by isopycnic cesium chloride centrifugation.
