The three colloquia of this conference deal with current research in the relation of chromosomal structure to its replication function, the genetic determination of protein structure, and agents modulating the biochemical expressions of genetic systems.
Two topics covered should be valuable to the hematologist. The structures of the abnormal hemoglobins are discussed in the second colloquium, and the third colloquium takes up the biochemistry of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency in red cells in the drug-induced hemolytic anemias.
The reader who is not familiar with the methods and terms of biochemical genetics will find these discussions to be slow reading; the novice
