Nancy L Craig received an AB in Biology and Chemistry in 1973 from Bryn Mawr College, Pennsylvania. She received her PhD in Biochemistry in 1980 at Cornell University, where she worked on the role of RecA function in the lysogenic induction of bacteriophage lambda. During postdoctoral work at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, from 1980-1984, she studied the mechanism of bacteriophage lambda site-specific recombination.

Molecular Biology: Principles of Genome Function (Paperback). Nancy Craig (author), Rachel Green (author), Carol Greider (author), Gisela Storz (author), Cynthia Wolberger (author). Donna E Crone, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Conveys in-depth material in an easily digestible manner.

Clear demonstrations of the experimental basis of molecular biology (set off in the text in "Experimental Approach" panels) reflect the central importance of experimental evidence to furthering our understanding of molecular biology.

Nancy L Craig received an . in Biology and Chemistry from Bryn Mawr College in 1973 and a P. Rachel Green received a . in chemistry from the University of Michigan in 1986 and a P. in Biochemistry in 1980 at Cornell University, where she worked on DNA repair with Jeff Roberts. She then worked on phage lambda recombination as a postdoctoral fellow with Howard Nash at the National Institutes of Health. in Biological Chemistry from Harvard University in 1992, where she worked with Jack Szostak studying catalytic RNA.

Nancy Craig, Rachel Green, Carol Greider. The biological world operates on a multitude of scales - from molecules to cells to tissues to organisms to ecosystems. Throughout all these levels runs a common thread: the communication and onward passage of information - from cell to cell, from organism to organism and, ultimately, from generation to generation.

I'm comparing this book (MB) to Molecular Biology of the Cell (MBoC), which is probably my favorite textbook of all time.

This one (MB) is not as much of a general cell biology book as it primarily covers only the elements of the so-called "central dogma" of molecular biology. DNA replication and transcription into RNA, and RNA translation into protein, plus all the regulatory aspects of those processes (as well as chapters on the cell cycle, DNA repair, transposable elements, and genomics), unlike MBoC which spends more or less the first half of the book on those topics and then devotes the second half to the further biology of the Cell, covering things like membranes, energy conversion, cell signalling, cancer, and the immune system.

Both books do a good job of introducing the Biochemistry you need in order to understand what follows. MB has a great first chapter that gives an overview of the book (basically "Molecular Biology in 30 pages").

Where MB shines though is in its more in-depth coverage of the topics it touches on. It devotes about twice as many pages to these topics as the current edition of MBoC does. MB is also wonderfully illustrated and does a good job of visually explaining things. MB contains lots of "experimental" panels that talk about how various aspects of the cell were discovered.

Both books include chapters on techniques for manipulating the genetic material in cells. I thought the current edition of MBoC felt slightly more up to date, but both books are very current editions with a good overview of the current state of the art.

Both books are quite readable. I would give the edge to MBoC here in terms of ease of reading as MB seems just a bit denser to me. But both are very easily understandable.

I can highly recommend this book (MB) to anyone looking for an in-depth coverage of the central themes of molecular biology (how DNA and genes work). It goes pretty deep for a first course, but it does not presume much of any background knowledge so it would be an appropriate book to introduce someone to the subject who wants to understand things very thoroughly.

If I had to choose only one or the other I'd still prefer the new MBoC edition due to its much broader coverage of cell biology (it's also 50% larger and twice as expensive though), but this one is really excellent at what it covers. I bought it after previewing the "Look Inside" pages and I have not been disappointed.

If the mechanics of the functioning of cells interests you then you'll probably be fascinated and really enjoy the depth of knowledge you gain from this book, and it's something you'll want to keep and probably use frequently as a reference if you progress further in the study of biology. If you find the details tedious, then this one might be more depth than you want, and something like Essential Cell Biology, 4th Edition might serve you better.

Currently this book is not available as a Kindle "Print Replica" e-textbook yet, where the other titles mentioned here are.

Really happy with the book, easily a 5+ star experience.

The book was in very good shape And was received in a timely fashion. Pages were good quality and intact without writing.
adventure time
An excellent, thorough, and up-to-date (2018) reference in molecular genetics
Taulkree
One of the best textbooks for a systematic overview of modern Mol Bio. At the same time, many necessary , detailed examples are also provided in the chapters for better understanding

While the book is certainly the book I wanted and am fully happy with that, it was not in the best condition when sent to me. I understand that it is a used copy for rental, but the cover along the spine is practically falling apart and i'm concerned that pages will begin falling out if I don't handle the book as gingerly as possible.

This is easy to read and full of details. I'm reading this because I'm studying for the MCAT and need more background then what the prep book is giving me in order to make thorough connections. So far so good.

I used this text as a reference for my graduate level advanced molecular biology class. It was extremely helpful. Wish I had bought instead of renting.
Great Service - Fast delivery! Very well written and illustrated, clear and unambiguous from the fundamentals to the complex. Precisely the reference I needed for researching biochemical interactions.
