Nucleic Acids : Structures, properties and functions Hardback
NucleicAcids presents an up-to-date and comprehensive account of thestructures and physical chemistry properties of nucleic acids,with special emphasis on biological function.
With a targetedaudience of 1)molecular biologists, 2)physical biochemists, and3)physical chemists, the book has been carefully organized toreach three different audiences while requiring only introductoryphysical chemistry and molecular biology as prerequisites.
NucleicAcids will serve as a textbook in physical biochemistry andbiophysical chemistry classes, as well as a supplemental text incourses on nucleic acid biochemistry or molecular biology, and asa personal reference for students and researchers in thesefields.
KeyFeaturesOrganized according to a systematic consideration of techniques used in the study of nucleic acid structure and properties. Key topics--such as protein-DNA and protein-drug complexes, conformational transitions, characterization of nucleic acids by gel and solution techniques, and behavior of supercoiled DNA--are covered in great detail as veritable mini-monographs. Heavily illustrated with diagrams, graphs, and molecular structures, including nearly 2 dozen color figures. Includes numerous figures, tables and an extensive bibliography to facilitate use as a reference volume.
