Now available with the most current and relevant research from Cell Press, Clark's Molecular Biology, Academic Cell Update Edition, gives readers both the concepts and the applications students need to know to fully grasp Molecular Biology. Clark introduces basic concepts and then follows with specific applications in research today. This book is further enhanced by its inclusion in the Academic Cell collaboration, providing it with links to current and recently published research. Molecular Biology draws in the applications from a number of fields including human cellular research, human medicine, agriculture research and veterinary medicine.
Undergraduate students taking a course in Molecular Biology; upper-level students studying Cell Biology, Microbiology, Genetics, Biology, Pharmacology, Biotechnology, Biochemistry and Agriculture

"This is an excellent book. It is very lucidly written. Clark covers a suitable set of topics, and treats each topic very thoroughly...He is very up-to-date in his coverage of the material." - John G. Burr, University of Texas at Dallas "This textbook is very comprehensive, covering nearly all aspects of molecular biology and genetics. The textbook excels in defining key terms in a clear and understable way...The sprinkling of little side stories...keeps the reader interested, and kept me glued throughout the text." - B. Franklin Pugh, Penn State University "The author did a very good job covering this vast subject and offered many insightful perspectives." - John F. Cannon, University of Missouri
