Molecular Biology of the Gene Book Excerpt:

A gene is a sequence of DNA or RNA that codes for a molecule that has a unique function. During gene expression, the DNA is copied into RNA. The transmission of genes to the next generation is the basis of inheritance of phenotypic traits. The study of the structure and function of genes at the molecular level is approached from the discipline of molecular genetics, which is a branch of molecular biology. It explores the aspects of heredity, variation and mutation by studying chromosomes and gene expression. The understanding of gene amplification techniques, particularly polymerase chain reaction and molecular cloning, separation and detection of DNA and mRNA, etc. are vital to the understanding of the molecular biology of genes. This book aims to shed light on some of the unexplored aspects of this area of study. Some of the diverse topics covered herein address the significant aspects of molecular biology of the gene. In this book, constant effort has been made to make the understanding of the difficult concepts, as easy and informative as possible for the readers.

Insect Molecular Genetics Book Excerpt:

Insect Molecular Genetics, 2nd edition, is a succinct book that briefly introduces graduate and undergraduate students to molecular genetics and the techniques used in this well established and important discipline. The book is written for two converging audiences: those familiar with insects that need to learn about molecular genetics, and those that are familiar with molecular genetics but not familiar with insects. Thus, this book is intended to fill the gap between two audiences that share a common middle ground. * Up-to-date references to important review articles, websites, and seminal citations in the disciplines * Well crafted and instructive illustrations integral to explaining the techniques of molecular genetics * Glossary of terms to help beginners learn the vocabulary of molecular biology

Genetics and Molecular Biology Book Excerpt:

In the first edition of Genetics and Molecular Biology, renowned researcher and award-winning teacher Robert Schleif produced a unique and stimulating text that was a notable departure from the standard compendia of facts and observations. Schleif's strategy was to present the underlying fundamental concepts of molecular biology with clear explanations and critical analysis of well-chosen experiments. The result was a concise and practical approach that offered students a real understanding of the subject. This second edition retains that valuable approach--with material thoroughly updated to include an integrated treatment of prokaryotic and eukaryotic molecular biology. Genetics and Molecular Biology is copiously illustrated with two-color line art. Each chapter includes an extensive list of important references to the primary literature, as well as many innovative and thought-provoking problems on material covered in the text or on related topics. These help focus the student's attention of a variety of critical issues. Solutions are provided for half of the problems. Praise for the first edition: "Schleif's Genetics and Molecular Biology... is a remarkable achievement. It is an advanced text, derived from material taught largely to postgraduates, and will probably be thought best suited to budding professionals in molecular genetics. In some ways this would be a pity, because there is also gold here for the rest of us... The lessons here in dealing with the information explosion in biology are that an ounce of rationale is worth a pound of facts and that, for educational value, there is nothing to beat an author writing about stuff he knows from theinside."--Nature. "Schleif presents a quantitative, chemically rigorous approach to analyzing problems in molecular biology. The text is unique and clearly superior to any currently available."--R.L. Bernstein, San Francisco State University. "The greatest strength is the author's ability to challenge the student to become involved and get below the surface."--Clifford Brunk, UCLA

GENE EXPRESSION AND ITS REGULATION Book Excerpt:

Werner Maas is Professor Emeritus of Microbiology at New York University School of Medicine. Since his student days in 1941 he has been involved in the development of the new science of molecular genetics. His main contributions have been in the discovery of regulatory genes that are essential for the proper functioning of all genes in the maintenance of living cells. In 1955 he discovered that the formation of the amino acid arginine was feedback-regulated by arginine in combination with the product of a regulatory gene. This single gene product controls the formation of the eight enzymes of arginine biosynthesis. The main part of this book deals with the analysis of the molecular mechanism of this regulation.

A History of Molecular Biology Book Excerpt:

Every day it seems the media focus on yet another new development in biology--gene therapy, the human genome project, the creation of new varieties of animals and plants through genetic engineering. These possibilities have all emanated from molecular biology. A History of Molecular Biology is a complete but compact account for a general readership of the history of this revolution. Michel Morange, himself a molecular biologist, takes us from the turn-of-the-century convergence of molecular biology's two progenitors, genetics and biochemistry, to the perfection of gene splicing and cloning techniques in the 1980s. Drawing on the important work of American, English, and French historians of science, Morange describes the major discoveries--the double helix, messenger RNA, oncogenes, DNA polymerase--but also explains how and why these breakthroughs took place. The book is enlivened by mini-biographies of the founders of molecular biology: Delbrück, Watson and Crick, Monod and Jacob, Nirenberg. This ambitious history covers the story of the transformation of biology over the last one hundred years; the transformation of disciplines: biochemistry, genetics, embryology, and evolutionary biology; and, finally, the emergence of the biotechnology industry. An important contribution to the history of science, A History of Molecular Biology will also be valued by general readers for its clear explanations of the theory and practice of molecular biology today. Molecular biologists themselves will find Morange's historical perspective critical to an understanding of what is at stake in current biological research.
