Genetic activity and chromosome chemistry

Copy the text below to embed this resource

Reviews the contributions of Mendel, the Hertwigs, and Miescher to our understanding of modern genetics.  Discusses chromosome chemistry in terms of the cytological distribution of nucleic acids, the chemical composition of chromosomes in groups of isolated nuclei and in single nuclei the chemical content of salivary chromosomes and their bands.  Compares cell activity with the DNA and RNA content of various giant chromosomes in insect larvae which leads to the conclusion that gene action can occur by the disproportionate increase in the amount of DNA or RNA.  Lecture given by Dr. J. Schultz.
