About this book

Insect Molecular Genetics, Third Edition, summarizes and synthesizes two rather disparate disciplines-entomology and molecular genetics. Insect Molecular Genetics provides an introduction to the techniques and literature of molecular genetics; defines terminology; and reviews concepts, principles, and applications of these powerful tools. The world of insect molecular genetics, once dominated by Drosophila, has become much more diverse, especially with the sequencing of multiple arthropod genomes (from spider mites to mosquitoes). This introduction includes discussion of honey bees, mosquitoes, flour beetles, silk moths, fruit flies, aphids, house flies, kissing bugs, cicadas, butterflies, tsetse flies and armyworms.

Insect Molecular Genetics serves as both a foundational text and a review of a rapidly growing literature. With fully revised and updated chapters, the third edition will be a valuable addition to the personal libraries of entomologists, geneticists, and molecular biologists.

Media reviews

"Hoy presents this third edition of her molecular entomology textbook, with updated material on genetic modification, sequencing, and symbiosis. The author notes that although the title refers to insects, other arthropods such as ticks and mites are increasingly contributing to related knowledge."
