Abstract:

From the Publisher: The molecular revolution is upon us! For those who expect to be part of what's happening in the 21st century, the impact of molecular genetics research should not be underestimated. The authors present a simple and fun approach to the topic of molecular biology. Written primarily for the science student, but suitable for the non-scientist, the reader will gain a solid understanding of the fundamentals and tools of molecular biology. The book also details how this rapidly advancing field has and will continue to have an impact on health, law, agriculture, biotechnology and our understanding of the origins of species.
