About this book

This book provides an in-depth look at the processes involved in evolution at the molecular and cellular levels. It begins with a broad overview of evolution, including a discussion of chemical evolution, the RNA world, and biological evolution. Covering the basics, it reviews nucleic acids, amino acids, peptides, and proteins, as well as genome organization and expression, mutation, and selection. In addition, the text presents the central dogma of molecular biology with all of its parts, amino acids, and peptides. The final chapters detail the methods used to study molecular evolution.
