Progress in Nucleic Acid Research and Molecular Biology book cover

Progress in Nucleic Acid Research and Molecular Biology

Nucleic acids are the fundamental building blocks of DNA and RNA and are found in virtually every living cell. Molecular biology is a branch of science that studies the physicochemical properties of molecules in a cell, including nucleic acids, proteins, and enzymes.

Importance of Topic
Increased understanding of nucleic acids and their role in molecular biology will further many of the biological sciences including genetics, biochemistry, and cell biology.

Why This Title
Progress in Nucleic Acid Research and Molecular Biology provides a forum for discussion of new discoveries, approaches, and ideas in molecular biology. It contains contributions from leaders in their fields and abundant references.

Researchers and graduate students in biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, and cell biology. Also intended for academic and research libraries, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, and private research facilities.

  • "In perusing these chapters, I found much of interest. It is worth investigating."
    Praise for the Serial, --P. Brickell in BIOTECHNOLOGY AND APPLIED BIOCHEMISTRY

    "Full of interest not only for the molecular biologist--for whom the numerous references will be invaluable--but will also appeal to a much wider circle of biologists, and in fact to all those who are concerned with the living cell."
