The Processes of Life : An Introduction to Molecular Biology, Paperback / softback Book

The Processes of Life : An Introduction to Molecular Biology Paperback / softback

Part of the The MIT Press series


A brief and accessible introduction to molecular biology for students and professionals who want to understand this rapidly expanding field. Recent research in molecular biology has produced a remarkably detailed understanding of how living things operate.

Becoming conversant with the intricacies of molecular biology and its extensive technical vocabulary can be a challenge, though, as introductory materials often seem more like a barrier than an invitation to the study of life.

This text offers a concise and accessible introduction to molecular biology, requiring no previous background in science, aimed at students and professionals in fields ranging from engineering to journalism-anyone who wants to get a foothold in this rapidly expanding field.

It will be particularly useful for computer scientists exploring computational biology.

A reader who has mastered the information in The Processes of Life is ready to move on to more complex material in almost any area of contemporary biology.
