About this book

Using model organisms from the three domains of life (Bacteria, Archaea, and Eukarya), "Genome Duplication" explains the principle molecular mechanisms of DNA replication and shows how the process is linked to cell division. This approaches allows the book to give insight into how genome duplication evolved, and how its regulation is relevant to the understanding and treatment of human disease, especially cancer. By providing a comprehensive and readable overview, "Genome Duplication" provides an excellent starting point for undergraduate and graduate students.
