McGill UniversityCanada

Dr. Gregory G. Brown received his Ph.D. in Biomedical Science from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. Following postdoctoral studies at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, he joined the faculty of McGill University, in Montreal, where he is currently a Professor of Biology. For many years his research has focused on using the phenomenon of cytoplasmic male sterility and fertility restoration in plants as a means of exploring the interaction between the nuclear and mitochondrial genomes. In 2003 his group reported the positional cloning of the radish nuclear restorer gene Rfo, one of the first nuclear restorer genes to be characterized.

The development of molecular cloning technology in the early 1970s created a revolution in the biological and biomedical sciences that extends to this day. The contributions in this book provide the reader with a perspective on how pervasive the applications of molecular cloning have become. The contributions are organized in sections based on application, and range from cancer biology and immunology to plant and evolutionary biology. The chapters also cover a wide range of technical approaches, such as positional cloning and cutting edge tools for recombinant protein expression. This book should appeal to many researchers, who should find its information useful for advancing their fields.
