One Hundred Years of Chromosome Research and What Remains to be Learned (Hardback)A. Lima-de-Faria (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
One Hundred Years of Chromosome Research: What Remains to be Learned, offers the reader a critical analysis of the observations and experiments that shaped the last 100 years of chromosome research, as well as the ideas which prevailed during this period.
Emphasis is placed on what remains to be learned, particularly in light of reality of the sequencing of DNA which leaves the previous era of chromosome research as a prehistoric event. It is at this turning point, that well formulated questions can be asked about many of the chromosome's properties, which remain to be unveiled.
The author, Lima-de-Faria is Professor Emeritus of Molecular Cytogenetics at Lund Unviersity, Sweden, previously Head of the Institute of Molecular Cytogenetics, Lund University.

"I highly recommend Professor Lima-de-Faria's book because I consider it a fantastic achievement and of great interest to a large audience."
(Professor Felix Mitelman, Editor-in-Chief of Genes, Chromosomes and Cancer) "Thank you very much for your excellent book! Its conciseness, beautiful illustration sand comprehensive bibliography and references make it an outstanding piece of work - perhaps one of the best on my table."
(Alexander S. Spirin, Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Moscow University, Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences)
"I was delighted to hear from you and to receive a copy of your new book "One hundred years of chromosome Research". I have started reading it and do so with great interest and enjoyment as it gives a flavour of your own particular excitement on the field as well as being a valuable account of the major milestones in cytogenetics. I firmly believe that molecular biologists need an understanding of the nature and behaviour of chromosomes if they are to fully advance in their discipline. I believe that your book will give them the necessary direction. Hearty congratulations on the publication of this excellent work."
(Malcolm Ferguson-smith, Professor Emeritus of Pathology, Cambridge University, England)
"I have recently read with great interest your new book One hundred years of Chromosome Research . I learned about it (and bought myself a copy) at the American Society of Cell Biology annual meeting last month. I congratulate you on doing an excellent job of bringing together all the facets of the history of chromosome research and I am also honoured that you have included some of my work in the book."
(James R. Paulson, Professor of Chemistry, University of Wisconsin, USA)
"Thanks for the wonderful book! I'm almost finished reading it. I very much appreciate how you let us know about all the loose ends and ignored paths."
(Dr. Richard Gordon, Health Sciences Centre, University of Manitoba, Canada)
"The book is a well-filled storehouse of interesting information, presumably gathered during a lifetime of research and teaching, a store on which the reader draws for his or her own benefit. For those somewhat familiar with chromosome, genetics or cell biology this book is rewarding reading. For younger colleagues in this field it should be considered obligatory."
(Professor Walther Trout, University of Lubeck, Germany)
"I always admire your brilliant work on chromosomes."
(Takashi Sugimura, President Emeritus, National Cancer Center, Tokyo, Japan)
"Many thanks for your beautiful book on chromosome research. I am sure I will enjoy reading it."
(Prof. Pierre Chambon, Unite Biologie Moleculaire, Faculte de Medicine, Universite de Strasbourg, France)
