Molecular Biology and Biotechnology – John M. Walker, Ralph Rapley – 4th Edition


The 4th Edition of this immensely popular textbook brings readers up to date with the latest advances in this rapidly developing field. It has been thoroughly revised and expanded, combining entirely new chapters on current hot topics with existing chapters that have been rewritten and extended.

and 4th Edition provides real breadth of coverage, taking account of both and industrial applications. It also gives in depth coverage of key areas, resulting in a uniquely comprehensive publication.

Highlights of this 4th Edition include increased coverage of the cloning of yeast and animal cells and plant genetic engineering, and new coverage of polymerase chain , DNA fingerprinting, transgenesis and vaccine , reflecting the rapid growth of interest in these areas.

The presents the information in an easily assimilated form and makes an ideal undergraduate text. It will be of particular interest to of biology and , as well as to scientific workers from outside the field who need a rapid introduction to the subject.

Molecular Biology and Biotechnology primarily has a teaching function and as such should prove invaluable.
