9780121755515: Molecular Biology

Molecular Biology: Academic Cell Update provides an introduction to the fundamental concepts of molecular biology and its applications. It deliberately covers a broad range of topics to show that molecular biology is applicable to human medicine and health, as well as veterinary medicine, evolution, agriculture, and other areas. The present Update includes the study guide with online content, journal specific images, and test bank. It also offers vocabulary flashcards and online self-quizzing called Test Prep.
The book begins by defining some basic concepts in genetics such as biochemical pathways, phenotypes and genotypes, chromosomes, and alleles. It explains the characteristics of cells and organisms, DNA, RNA, and proteins. It also describes genetic processes such as transcription, recombination and repair, regulation, and mutations. The chapters on viruses and bacteria discuss their life cycle, diversity, reproduction, and gene transfer. Later chapters cover topics such as molecular evolution; the isolation, purification, detection, and hybridization of DNA; basic molecular cloning techniques; proteomics; and processes such as the polymerase chain reaction, DNA sequencing, and gene expression screening.

*Now with an online study guide with the most current, relevant research from Cell Press 

*Full supplements including test bank, powerpoint and online self quizzing

*Up to date description of genetic engineering, genomics, and related areas * Basic concepts followed by more detailed, specific applications * Hundreds of color illustrations enhance key topics and concepts * Covers medical, agricultural, and social aspects of molecular biology * Organized pedagogy includes running glossaries and keynotes (mini-summaries) to hasten comprehension

Product Description:

Molecular biology is a fast-paced field that constantly provides new insights into the living world and the role of humans within it. Students and professionals need a clear understanding of new discoveries and applications, as well as a firm grasp of the fundmental concepts. Clark's Molecular Biology: Understanding the Genetic Revolution gives readers what they need in both regards.

Clark effectively introduces basic concepts followed by more specific applications as the text evolves. He has included research results as current as late 2004 when the gene count for humans was officially changed, and takes a thorough look at the medical, agricultural, and social aspects that shape modern-day molecular biology. This text is written in a straightforward manner and beautifully illustrated in full color.

Molecular Biology covers a deliberately broad range of topics to show that molecular biology is not applicable merely to human medicine and health, but also applies to veterinary medicine, evolution, agriculture, and other areas.
