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.
