Molecular Biology: Genes to Proteins: 4th Edition Newly revised, reorganized and updated, Molecular Biology: Genes to Proteins, Fourth Edition provides readers with a comprehensive guide through the basic molecular processes and genetic phenomena in both prokaryotic and eurkaryotic cells. Written for the undergraduate and first-year graduate students of molecular biology, molecular genetics, or biochemistry, the text has been updated with the latest data from this ever-changing field. Whenever possible the author uses a discovery approach, urging students to explore the historical and experimental evidence relevant to the important concepts discussed and to examine clues and develop hypotheses that ultimately lead to advances in molecular biology. Divided in to six Sections, topics are strategically arranged to cover basic information that is necessary to understand more advanced topics covered in later Sections. New and key features for the Fourth Edition: A new chapter describing small silencing RNAs A revised organization allows instructors to build more easily on critical concepts throughout the course An examination of RNA structure in greater detail than ever before Includes a new description of the ubiquitin proteasome proteolytic pathway The Section on DNA sequence has been updated to include the new generation of DNA sequencers Coverage has been added that examines epigenetic programming, which includes a discussion of imprinting and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells Contents Chapter 1: Introduction to Molecular Biology Section I: Protein Structure and Function Chapter 2: Protein Structure Chapter 3: Protein Function Section II: Nucleic Acids and Nucleoproteins Chapter 4: Nucleic Acid Structure Chapter 5: Techniques in Molecular Biology Chapter 6: Chromosome Structure Section III: Genetics and Virology Chapter 7: Genetic Analysis in Molecular Biology Chapter 8: Viruses in Molecular Biology Section IV: DNA Metabolism Chapter 9: DNA Repli
