Media reviews

DNA Topology provides a solid basis for understanding the physical properties of DNA and its topology, and how this molecule actively participates in many cellular processes. This book is certainly aimed at specialists, whom it will not diappoint with its detailed treatment of the core subject matter. The Quarterly Review of Biology, Volume 81, March 2006.
