Route Maps in Gene Technology
is an exciting new introductory textbook for first-year undergraduates in molecular biology and molecular genetics. The subject is broken down into 140 to 150 key concepts or topics, each of which is dealt with in one doublepaged spread. These range from basic introductory principles to applied topics at the cutting edge of research. A control strip along the top of the page shows the student which pages need to have been read beforehand and which topics may be followed afterward. In addition, at the front of the book are a selection of 'routes,' which the student or teacher may choose in order to study a particular topic. Because courses have become more 'modular' and many students arrive at college with little or no biology background, this approach enables teachers and students to structure a course of study to best suit their disparate exposure to biology.
- An exciting new concept in textbook design, allowing unparalleled flexibility on the part of the student and the teacher
- Covers the full range of modern molecular biology, from basic principles to the latest applications
- Attractive, clear and simple presentation with copious two-colour illustrations
