This sixteen volume encyclopedia is the most comprehensive and detailed treatment of molecular biology, cell biology and molecular medicine available today! It was designed in collaboration with a founding board of 10 Nobel laureates. The Encyclopedia provides a single-source library of the molecular basis of life, with a focus on molecular medicine. The latest advances of the post-genomic era, e.g. in the fields of functional genomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics are discussed in detail. All articles are designed as self-contained treatments. Each of the approximately 425 articles begins with an outline and a key word section with definitions. Articles are written in a review-like style complemented with an extensive bipartite bibliography of reviews and books as well as primary papers. A glossary of basic terms completes each volume and defines the most commonly used terms in molecular biology. Together with the introductory illustrations found in each volume, the articles enable readers to understand articles without referring to a dictionary, textbook, or other reference.
