Synopses & Reviews
Molecular biology is one of the most rapidly developing and at the same time most exciting disciplines. The key to molecular biology lies in the understanding of nucleic acids - their structure, function, and interaction with proteins. Nucleic Acids and Molecular Biology was created to keep scientists abreast of the explosively growing information and to comply with the great interest in this field.
The series comprises focused review articles by active researchers who report on the lates results in areas of particular interest. It allows scientists to familiarize themselves with new developments in areas outside their immediate speciality, thus providing a more global view of the field.
