1982 (Volume 13, No. 2)Plasmids: Plasmids: More Than Genetic DebrisUbiquitous rings of genetic material appear to researchers to have a vital role in bacterial virulence and a selfish penchant to replicate. Plasmids in vertebrates.William CheckPDF
1982 (Volume 13, No. 3)Genetic Engineering -- Plant Sciences Special: Engineering the Botanical GeneThe manipulability of the genes of microorganisms has pushed biotechnology to several brinks. Zoologists go where botanists may not yet tread.William CheckPDF
1982 (Volume 13, No. 6)Gene Expression: The Regulation of Gene ExpressionThe triggers that turn genes on or off appear to involve movement, relative position, chemical modification, and nearby proteins.William CheckPDF
1984 (Volume 15, No. 4)Biotechnology -- Engineering Research Special: The Engineering ChallengesBiotechnology is Posing Work with genetically altered organisms is causing fermentation engineers to reexamine their process designs and practices. Subtle alterations. Mining gold.William CheckPDF
1985 (Volume 16, No. 2)Proto-oncogenes: Before There Were OncogenesThe genes that can trigger tumor growth are part of the genetic complement of normal cells. What do these genes do, and why do the sometimes go wrong? Anti-oncogenes, growth inhibitors.William CheckPDF
