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 fundamental 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. This book provides an up to date description of genetic engineering, genomics, and related areas. It features basic concepts followed by more detailed, specific applications. Hundreds of color illustrations enhance key topics and concepts. It covers medical, agricultural, and social aspects of molecular biology. The organized pedagogy includes running glossaries and keynotes (mini-summaries) to hasten comprehension.

"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 MissouriAbout the Author:
