Synopsis:

This book reviews various ways DNA content is modulated in the cells of multicellular organisms. Although the processes of endopolyploidy, polyteny, aneuploidy, and chromatin diminution have been observed for well over a century, their biological significance has not been appreciated due to the lack, until recently, of molecular and statistical methods capable of examining such phenomena. Insights arising from the methods make this an opportune time to explore what is known—and what remains to be discovered—about these processes.
