Fundamental Molecular Biology

Discover a focused and up to date exploration of foundational and core concepts in molecular biology

The newly revised Third Edition of Fundamental Molecular Biology delivers a selective and precise treatment of essential topics in molecular biology perfect for allowing students to develop an accurate understanding of the applications of the field. The book applies the process of discovery-observations, questions, experimental designs, results, and conclusions-with an emphasis on the language of molecular biology. Readers will easily focus on the key ideas they need to succeed in any introductory molecular biology course.

Fundamental Molecular Biology provides students with the most up to date techniques and research used by molecular biologists today. Readers of the book will have the support and resources they need to develop a concrete understanding of core and foundational concepts of molecular biology, without being distracted by outdated or peripheral material.

Readers will also benefit from the inclusion of:

  • A thorough introduction to and comparison of eukaryotic and prokaryotic organisms illustrating the variation of cellular processes across organisms
  • Tool boxes exploring up to date experimental methods and techniques used by molecular biologists
  • Focus boxes providing detailed treatment of topics that delve further into experimental strategies
  • Disease boxes placing complex regulatory pathways in their relevant context and illustrating key principles of molecular biology

Perfect for instructors and professors of introductory molecular biology courses, Fundamental Molecular Biology will also earn a place in the libraries of anyone seeking to improve their understanding of molecular biology with an insightful and well-grounded treatment of the core principles of the subject.

Author Biography
