Includes access to the Student Companion Website with every print copy of the text. Written for the more concise course, Principles of Molecular Biology is modeled after Burton Tropp's successful Molecular Biology: Genes to Proteins and is appropriate for the sophomore level course. The author begins with an introduction to molecular biology, discussing what it is and how it relates to applications in "real life" with examples pulled from medicine and industry. An overview of protein structure and function follows, and from there the text covers the various roles of technology in elucidating the central concepts of molecular biology, from both a historical and contemporary perspective. Tropp then delves into the heart of the book with chapters focused on chromosomes, genetics, replication, DNA damage and repair, recombination, transposition, transcription, and wraps up with translation. Key Features: - Presents molecular biology from a biochemical perspective, utilizing model systems, as they best describe the processes being discussed -Special Topic boxes throughout focus on applications in medicine and technology -Presents "real world" applications of molecular biology that are necessary for students continuing on to medical school or the biotech industry -An end-of-chapter study guide includes questions for review and discussion -Difficult or complicated concepts are called-out in boxes to further explain and simplify

Principles of Molecular Virology Standard Edition

... techniques of investigation are themselves 'molecular biology' in the original sense of the term; however, the term 'molecular biology' has taken on the new and different meaning of 'genetic engineering' or 'genetic manipulation.

: Designed to fill the existing gap between simple introductory texts and very advanced reviews of major virus families, Principles of Virology introduces upper–level undergraduates, graduate students, and medical students to all aspects of virology. Written in an engagingly readable style and generously illustrated with over 400 full–color illustrations, this approachable volume offers detailed examples that illustrate common principles, specific strategies adopted by different viruses to ensure their reproduction, and the current state of virology research. Divided into chapters focusing on specific topics rather than individual viruses, the book allows the student to visualize common themes in replication that cut across virus families, emphasizing the shared features of different viruses. Drawing on the extensive teaching experience of each of its distinguished authors, Principles of Virology illustrates why and how animal viruses are studied, taking well–known systems and demonstrating how the knowledge gained from these model viruses can be used to study viral systems about which our knowledge is still quite limited. A discussion of viruses in early human cultures, how viruses were discovered, and how the discipline of virology came to be is also provided.

Drawn from the content of the new Ninth Edition of Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, this unique publication brings together the basic scientific information on the molecular biology of cancer. The format is designed to be useful both to research scientists interested in the study of cancer and to oncologists who need to understand these new developments that are having a profound impact on the care of patients with cancer. Leading scientists and clinicians in the field of molecular biology and clinical oncology have lent their expertise to this project. The text has been divided into two parts. Part I includes thirteen chapters that deal with the general principles of the molecular biology of cancer that provide the basic framework for an understanding of the behavior of cancer cells. Part II includes an up-to-date description of how this new information has affected the understanding of the biology of 19 of the most common cancers, with an emphasis on how these new findings have been translated to impact the management of cancer patients. This distinctive text provides a single concise source of information for scientists and clinicians in this rapidly developing field.
