Description:
A collection of papers devoted to the study of genetics and cell biology. The genetics of chloro­plasts and mitochondrial inheritance have only fairly recently come to represent a major preoccupation of both molecular and cell biologists, who have been prompted, since the discovery of organelle DMA in the early 1960s, to probe ever more deeply into the energy-producing centers of the cell.
