Description: Molecular Genetics provides a basic understanding of genes and how they are used as a source of information for the production of proteins. The book also describes the techniques used in molecular genetics research, from mapping of genes, through gene cloning, PCR and sequencing, to give the reader an insight into the practical details. This book is designed as a concise textbook for undergraduate biomedical science students, and it offers the following key features: • Learning objectives to help guide understanding • Core knowledge written in a style that encourages students to think around the subject rather than just learning the facts, and with numerous illustrations • Key concepts and facts summarised to aid revision • Self-assessment questions and answers to test understanding • Further reading list to guide students to more detailed coverage if required.
