About this book

Reprint of Cytogenetic and Genome Research 2012, Vol. 137, No. 2-4

Evolutionary Dynamics of Mammalian Karyotypes both reviews and synthesizes the cytogenetic data pertinent to mammalian genome evolution including the most recent advances in molecular cytogenetics with an emphasis on chromosome painting in mammals. Evolutionary Dynamics of Mammalian Karyotypes begins with an overview of molecular cytogenetics in mammals offering original perspectives on genome evolution in mammals and in other vertebrates as well as on syntenic and associational evolution. Furthermore it discusses the evolution of genome size in mammals and details the cytogenetic findings in: Monotremata and Marsupialia, Afrotheria, Xenarthra, Chiroptera, Eulipotyphla, Carnivora and Pholidota, Cetartiodactyla, Perissodactyla, Rodentia, Lagamorpha and Sciuromorpha, Strepsirrhine Primates, Dermoptera and Scandentia, New World Primates, and Catarrhine Primates.

Leading experts in the field summarize the karyological and molecular cytogenetic data of mammals and pay particular attention to the last decades of intense activity in this field. Comparative and phylogenomic implications are thoroughly explored and integrated with sequencing information. The synthesis and new interpretations of mammalian karyotypes found in Evolutionary Dynamics of Mammalian Karyotypes have wide implications for those interested in the evolution of the vertebrate genome and for researchers involved in molecular cytogenetics, mammalian evolution, zoology, primatology, and comparative genomics.
