This reference work features approximately 250 articles covering topics in molecular biology, molecular medicine and biotechnology. Each article has been carefully reviewed and is well illustrated and referenced. Each subject is presented on a first-principle basis, including appropriate mathematics. Aranged alphabetically for easy access, each self-contained article begins with a key-word section, complete with definitions in the context of that particular topic. A concise definition of the subject and its importance follows and leads into the body of the article, which is divided into appropriate subsections and details the principles, applications and background of the topic. Where appropriate, articles provide cross-references to related articles so that the reader may explore associated subjects in the book. Each article concludes with a bibliography. This text is designed to assist the growing number of scientists from such diverse backgrounds as biology, medicine, physics, chemistry, mathematics and engineering who interact with the molecular biology, molecular medicine and biotechnology fields.

Over 250 carefully-reviewed articles, contributed by outstanding scientists in the field, provide detailed and readable coverage of today's most relevant topics including life processes at the molecular level, genetic disease diagnosis and genetic therapy, the theory and techniques for understanding, manipulating, and synthesizing biological molecules and their aggregates.From the Back Cover:
Molecular Biology and Biotechnology A Comprehensive Desk Reference "The remarkable pace and diversity of contemporary molecular biology and genomics make it difficult for individuals to find a single source of introductory information on a bewildering array of topics. This work, drawing upon the leading experts in the field, provides an invaluable reference source for this task." George Poste, President, Research and Development, SmithKline Beecham Pharmaceuticals Molecular Biology and Biotechnology is a convenient, current, and comprehensive one-volume "library" of the theories and the techniques involved in understanding the molecular basis of life and the application of that knowledge in genetics, medicine, and agriculture. It contains more than 250 carefully reviewed articles written by 378 eminent scientists representing 18 countries, including 8 Nobel laureates. The book contains over 120 tables and 500 illustrations, including a section in full color. All articles are designed as self-contained treatments of the important topics in molecular biology that are presented on a first-principles basis and include appropriate mathematics and references. Arranged alphabetically for easy access, each article begins with a key word section to assist the scientist or university student who is unfamiliar with the specific subject area. The book includes more than 1,500 key words, each defined within the context of the particular scientific field covered by the article, since the same word may have different meanings in different fields. In addition to the key word definitions, the Glossary of Basic Terms found at the back of the book defines the most commonly used terms in molecular biology. Extensive cross-references and a detailed subject index give the reader further easy access to topics of particular interest. The unique structure and organization of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology allow maximum comprehension by both novice and expert. The book will be an invaluable resource for scientists trained in other fields who are interested in working in the fields of molecular biology, molecular medicine, or biotechnology.
