About this book

The last quarter of the 20th century saw major scientific revolutions in genetics and computer technology. This book reflects this massive surge in our understanding of the molecular foundations of genetics. In order to understand where these technological advances are heading, there needs to be a basic understanding of how living organisms function at a molecular level. Molecular Biology, 2e, effectively introduces basic concepts followed by more specific applications as the text evolves. With the addition of Cell Press articles, the content is tied to current topics in the scientific community.
