Reviews

From the reviews of the first edition:

"Chromosomes Today contains the conference proceedings from plenary sessions delivered at the 14th International Chromosome Conference … . the papers collected together in this volume are up-to-date and informative on many levels i.e. technical advances, evolution, chromosome behaviour and theoretical. The sections cover such diverse topics … . Indeed, the whole volume is very strong on information and data concerning mammals and birds. … it would make an interesting addition to any lab library but would also make an excellent supplement for undergraduate teaching … ." (Joanna M. Bridger, Genetical Research, Cambs, Vol. 85, 2005)

"The Chromosomes Today series of books records the proceedings of the International chromosome conferences. … the volume records the plenary proceedings of the 14th conference presenting an overview of the current concerns in plant, animal and human cytogenetics. … It is a nicely produced hardback volume on good quality paper with well-reproduced illustrations. … It is nice to have it on the shelf and I shall dip into it from time to time." (Rod Howell, Human Genetics, Vol. 117 (6), 2005)
