About this book


Written for students of molecular genetics and molecular biology, the first volume in the Macmillan Molecular Biology Series sets the scene by introducing aspects that provide the scientific background for the major technical advances of genetic engineering. Central topics such as replication, mapping, mutation, transposition and both general and site-specific recombination are fully documented. Throughout this informative text, the emphasis is on the understanding of experimental data and each chapter concludes with self-assessment questions and suggestions for future reading, both of which are key features of all the books in the series.
