Summary
  • Genes V is the most up-to-date textbook available. It now includes a completely new design in full color with many more figures - all completely redrawn; an increased emphasis on biological function - providing improved coverage of cell biology, development, and cancer; a logical structure - easy to follow and learn from; and up-to-the-minute references
  • Genes V gives an integrated account of the structure and function of genes in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms. It is thoroughly up-to-date with the latest thinking and research in the field. Successive editions have provided complete coverage of the fields of modern molecular genetics and molecular biology and this edition continues that approach, providing a new synthesis with much greater importance attached to how genes function in their biological context
