The choice of books for an undergraduate student studying molecular biology is vast, with a plethora of good titles available on the market. This text adopts a pleasing approach to molecular biology by embedding it within a book that also covers some more traditional topics, including genetics and basic cell biology and biochemistry.
The result is a coherent textbook that includes snapshots of recent research alongside the fundamental science by which it is underpinned. This textbook would be a useful reference for students studying molecular biology on a wide range of undergraduate programmes.
