About this book

Focuses on the chemistry of the deoxyribonucleic acids (DNA) and the ribonucleic acids (RNA). However, because nucleic acid chemistry cannot be fully understood without some knowledge of the underlying biology, a substantial amount of the background biology is also included.

Highly recommended for undergraduate students in chemistry and related fields -- Carbohydrate Polymers, 58 (2004), 483-485 (John F Kennedy) Carbohydrate Polymers The book provides a lot of information on the various aspects of nucleic acids in a concise and nicely written manner that makes it a very good read. -- Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, (2006), 385: 10-11 (Jorg D Hoheisel) Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry


The Biological Roles of the Nucleic Acids; The Covalent Structures of Nucleic Acids; The Three-Dimensional Structure of DNA and its Implications for Replication; Transcription and Translation of the Genetic Message; Modern Tools of DNA Analysis; Subject Index
