Media reviews

Fundamental Molecular Biology by Lizabeth Allison is a clearly written, engaging text that provides an excellent introduction to the field of molecular biology. With numerous well-conceived diagrams and examples of real life applications, Allison's text will be appreciated by students and instructors alike. Daniel P. Herman, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire "Lizabeth Allison's examination of molecular biology flows like a novel, which should qualify her as a non-fiction story-teller. She has mastered the art of explaining difficult concepts in a simplified and understandable manner, making this knowledge more accessible and non-threatening to students of all levels. Gems like the historical perspectives, focus boxes, and disease boxes add even more interest to this already well-written textbook." Hao Nguyen, California State University, Sacramento "Fundamental Molecular Biology is pleasingly up to date in this rapidly advancing field, and its combination of history, relevance and technical detail makes it an attractive book for lecturers and their students."
