The Processes of Life: An Introduction to Molecular Biology

Lawrence E. Hunter


Recent research in molecular biology has produced a remarkably detailed understanding of how living things operate. Becoming conversant with the intricacies of molecular biology and its extensive technical vocabulary can be a challenge, though, as introductory materials often seem more like a barrier than an invitation to the study of life. This text offers a concise and accessible introduction to molecular biology, requiring no previous background in science.

Keywords: molecular biology, study of life, computer scientists, computational biology, living things, technical vocabulary
