This book is a comprehensive overview of the subject and is written in a clear and simple language. It also incorporates several student-friendly features. There are numerous illustrations and tables that will enable the readers to grasp the concepts easily. Each chapter begins with Learning Objectives and includes Key Points and Self-assessment Questions. The Further Reading section guides the students towards advanced discussion of the topics. It is hoped that the book will be a valuable textbook to students of biotechnology, genetics and other courses which have molecular biology as a component.
