About this book

Cutting edge reviews by leading researchers illuminate key aspects of DNA repair in mammalian systems and its relationship to human genetic disease and cancer. Major topics include UV and X-Ray repair, repair of chemical damage, recombinational repair, mismatch repair, transcription-repair coupling, and the role of DNA repair in disease prevention. Extensive up-to-date references and rigorous peer-review of each chapter make this volume definitive and bring it to the active frontiers of research.

Reviews

". . .serves as a comprehensive introduction to the eukaryotic repair field. The book will be of particular value to researchers who are newly entering the field, especially molecular biologists who wish to gain a broader historical, biological and medical perspective. . .this book was in high demand by my laboratory as soon as the review copy arrived. By this test, it will be a worthwhile addition to the personal library of investigators with research interests in the area of DNA repair."-The Quarterly review of Biology
