Chromosomes To Genome by Rakesh K. Mishra
Book Summary:

Increasing number of complete genome sequences in the past decade has enhanced our understanding of chromosomal basis of genetic inheritance to molecular level. Chromosomes to Genome presents the historical perspective as well as the current state of this journey from chromosomes to genome.
The book presents complex topics in a simplified manner that is accessible to any student of biology. Each chapter provides a historical account of the field and reviews the recent work in this area, puts the subject in appropriate perspective and makes reading enjoyable. The book provides ‘genomic account’ of evolutionary history of emergence of complexity from simple living systems. It also gives glimpses of intricate regulatory mechanisms that act on genomic information during differentiation of different cell types.
Each chapter is written by well-known practising scientists leading very active and competitive groups engaged in unravelling the secrets hidden in the complex trail of DNA double helix in the immensely dense forest of eukaryotic nucleus.
