Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is the perfect resource for any student without previous experience in the subject who needs to know its key principles and concepts - whether they are studying biology or biochemistry, biomedical science or nutrition. The book blends the fundamentals of molecular biology and biochemistry with the latest technological advances, including mass spectrometry, RNA interference, X-ray synchrotron radiation, the medical applications of single nucleotide polymorphisms, the development of pluripotent cells with stem cell potential, and the use of protein and DNA databases and their application to the study of disease-causing genes. It gives a contemporary, intellectually stimulating depiction of the field, while always maintaining a wonderful clarity, enriched by carefully layered explanations and vivid illustrations. Its scope, size and presentation make Biochemistry and Molecular Biology the ideal companion as you explore the subject for the first time.
