About this product
- DescriptionWith the rise of gemics, the life sciences have entered a new era. This book provides a comprehensive history of mapping procedures as they were developed in classical genetics. An accompanying volume - From Molecular Genetics to Gemics - covers the history of molecular genetics and gemics. The book shows that the techlogy of genetic mapping is by means a recent acquisition of molecular genetics or even genetic engineering. It demonstrates that the development of mapping techlogies has accompanied the rise of modern genetics from its very beginnings. In Section One, Mendelian genetics is set in perspective from the viewpoint of the detection and description of linkage phemena. Section Two addresses the role of mapping for the experimental working practice of classical geneticists, their social interactions and for the laboratory 'life worlds'. With detailed analyses of the scientific practices of mapping and its illustration of the diversity of mapping practices this book is a significant contibution to the history of genetics. A companion volume from the same editors - From Molecular Genetics to Gemics: The Mapping Cultures of Twentieth Century Genetics - covers the history of molecular genetics and gemics.
