By Jean-Paul Gaudillière,Hans-Jörg Rheinberger

With the increase of genomics, the lifestyles sciences have entered a brand new period. This booklet presents a entire historical past of mapping systems as they have been constructed in classical genetics. An accompanying quantity - From Molecular Genetics to Genomics - covers the historical past of molecular genetics and genomics.

The booklet indicates that the expertise of genetic mapping is in no way a up to date acquisition of molecular genetics or maybe genetic engineering. It demonstrates that the improvement of mapping applied sciences has followed the increase of recent genetics from its very beginnings. In part One, Mendelian genetics is determined in standpoint from the perspective of the detection and outline of linkage phenomena. part addresses the function of mapping for the experimental operating perform of classical geneticists, their social interactions and for the laboratory 'life worlds'.

With distinct analyses of the clinical practices of mapping and its representation of the range of mapping practices this e-book is an important contibution to the heritage of genetics. A spouse quantity from a similar editors - From Molecular Genetics to Genomics: The Mapping Cultures of 20th Century Genetics - covers the background of molecular genetics and genomics.
