Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

andlt;Pandgt;Recent research in molecular biology has produced a remarkably detailed understanding of how living things operate. Becoming conversant with the intricacies of molecular biology and its extensive technical vocabulary can be a challenge, though, as introductory materials often seem more like a barrier than an invitation to the study of life. This text offers a concise and accessible introduction to molecular biology, requiring no previous background in science, aimed at students and professionals in fields ranging from engineering to journalism--anyone who wants to get a foothold in this rapidly expanding field. It will be particularly useful for computer scientists exploring computational biology. A reader who has mastered the information in andlt;Iandgt;The Processes of Life andlt;/Iandgt;is ready to move on to more complex material in almost any area of contemporary biology.andlt;/Pandgt;
