Summary

Two decades ago Benjamin Lewin's Genes revolutionized the teaching of molecular biology and molecular genetics by introducing a unified approach to bacteria and higher organisms. Essential GENES continues the tradition ofremaining at the cutting edge of molecular biology, covering gene structure, organization, and expression.

Essential GENES begins with the sequence of the human and other genomes and starts with complete coverage of recent advances in genomics. The coverage of genomics is then integrated throughout the text.

In striving for currency, Essential GENES includes the latest coverage of genome organization, DNA replication, gene regulation and many other new topics.
