About The Book

Earlier published as Molecular Biology, this edition with a bigger title “A Textbook of Molecular Biology” has been thoroughly revised and enlarged for students preparing for careers in biology, medicine and related fields. This edition has been designed to establish a conceptual framework that represents a sound approach to learning and facilitates the compre-hension of the vast amount of information constituting the field of Molecular Biology. The entire text has been revised with an eye to providing clarity and coverage of the latest cutting-edge topics in Molecular Biology. This text provides students with clearly written straightforward explanations that elucidate difficult, complex topics without over-simplifying presentations.

Spectacular advances have been made in many areas of molecular biology since the publication of the 2nd edition that contribute to our growing understanding of the beauty and wonder of this field. The goal was to design the text in an approachable and readable form that the students can understand and master. In fact, the book was planned to be intellectually gratifying and to convey not only facts, but also a sense to the excitement of modern molecular and cellular biology.

This book is not intended to be encyclopedic in its coverage. Our goal is to present the essential principles, processes, and methodology of molecular biology as lucidly as possible. Recognizing the exceptionally rapid pace of discovery in molecular biology during the past several years, we have sought to weave new knowledge and insights into the fabric of the text while remaining faithful to our central goal of focusing on the essentials of the discipline.
