"This book covers an impressive array of topics, which are normally pigeonholed into more specific areas of research. It was refreshing to see such diverse subjects as RNA structure, aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases, ribosomal proteins and in vitro selection discussed in a single volume. . .The editors and authors should be commended for this admirable text. It captures the breadth and complexity of RNA-protein recognition for the first time and represents a challenge for the future." --Current Biology
"A wide range of interesting topics is covered in RNA-Protein Interactions, and even experts are sure to learn something new. The book is an excellent resource for researchers in the field, with each chapter providing an extensive list of references. ... The reader gets an accurate picture of state-of-the-art research in this field, as well as a sense of excitement and anticipation for what the future holds." -- Biophysical Journal
