The following list provides examples of keywords that can be used to search for books/ebooks or journal articles on topics in molecular genetics (use the book search box to the right).
When searching in LibrarySearch, 'and' is the default between each terms, so searching for: gene transfer, searches for: gene and transfer ...
Use quotation marks around two or more words to search for a concept/phrase. For example: "gene expression" "gene mapping". (Search for the titles of books and articles in the same way, using quotations around the titles.)
Note: Use the symbol * to search a keyword with various endings. For example, searching: gene* will search for: gene, genes, genetic, and genetics:
“biochemistry and molecular biology”
"comparative genome analysis"
“expressed sequence tags”
“genetics and heredity”
“plant genetics & genomics”
Note: Also search using family names or specific species names e.g. "Saccharomyces cerevisiae" , "Caenorhabditis elegans" and "Drosphila melanogaster".
The VIU Library has eBooks on a wide range of subjects. You can access these eBooks from on or off campus using your Library ID and PIN.
If the VIU Library doesn't have enough books on your topic, then you can request to borrow books from other libraries.
First, you can search the WorldCat catalogue to get the citation information of a book you want to order, then use the VIU InterLibrary Loan System to request the book and have it brought to our library.
