Overview

Human Molecular Biology is an introduction to the molecular basis of health and disease for the new generation of life scientists and medical students. By integrating cutting-edge molecular genetics and biochemistry with the latest clinical information, the book weaves a pattern that unifies biology with syndromes, genetic pathways with developmental phenotypes, and protein function with drug action. Lavishly illustrated throughout with two-color diagrams and full color clinical pictures, this text brings the complexities and breadth of human molecular biology clearly to life.
