Overview

This sixth edition of James D. Watson's classic textbook Molecular Biology of the Gene has been thoroughly revised and updated. Accessible to anyone interested in molecular biology and genetics, the book provides a historical basis for the field, concise descriptions of fundamental chemical concepts, a comprehensive survey of genome maintenance and expression, and a discussion of standard techniques and model organisms commonly used in molecular biology studies. It includes all new chapters on the regulatory RNAs and genomics and systems biology. The book has an accompanying Web site (www.aw-bc.com/watson/), which contains interactive tutorials, animations, and criticalthinking exercises designed to help students explore and visualize complex concepts.
