The book Basics of Molecular Biology has been kept close to the basics as far as possible; so that the students may learn without having to first assimilate complex terminology. The book contains essential facts and overloading it with esoteric details only of interest to a minute proportion of the scientific community has been avoided. The book contains more than 100 line diagrams which are easy to understand memorize and reproduce at a later date. This is invariably useful while explaining a difficult concept to others as well as during examinations. Complex three-dimensional colour figures have been avoided. This book was although originally conceived for students of B.Sc. And M.Sc. yet the individual with a background in the sciences as well as students at other levels may benefit from its simplistic approach. Those who wish to go deeper into the subject a few articles or books are listed at the end of each chapter as further reading. Some experiments marked with an asterisk (*) in the book are quite suitable for doing in a laboratory under the guidance of a teacher. Basics of Molecular Biology is intended to give the reader a sound foundation of Molecular Biology and a flavor of the subject as it stand today. The primary purpose of the book is to be an initial stepping stone towards greater heights.
