Insect Molecular Genetics: An Introduction to Principles and Applications, Fourth Edition provides the most recent advances and research in entomology and molecular genetics. It demonstrates the role molecular genetics plays in pest management and basic insect biology research, assuming readers have little to no prior knowledge on the subject. This newest edition features updates on the latest trends and discoveries, such as CRISPR-Cas genome editing methods, epigenetic inheritance, DNA amplification techniques, and molecular phylogenies. Certain chapter topics, including P-element mediated transformation and insect population molecular techniques, are condensed and updated to create a more comprehensive and concise read. This foundational text is a valuable resource for entomologists with limited training in molecular genetics, and will be an ideal source for pest control advisors who need to understand the vocabulary and methods that are used to solve entomological issues.
