Lewins Essential GENES, Third Edition, provides students with a comprehensive overview of molecular biology and molecular genetics. The authors have carefully modified the chapter flow in an effort to provide a clearer and more student-friendly presentation of course material. Chapter material has been updated throughout, including a completely revised chapter on regulatory RNA. The Third Editions exceptional pedagogy enhances student learning and helps readers understand and retain key material like never before. Concept and Reasoning Checks at the end of each chapter section, End-of- Chapter Questions and Further Readings sections, as well as several categories of special topics boxes, expand and reinforce important concepts. Special Topics Boxes promote greater understanding of key material. They fall into four-categories: Essential Ideas boxes reinforce and clearly explain concepts critical to the chapter topics, Medical Applications boxes provide links between basic molecular principles and human health, Historical Perspectives boxes illuminate the experimental paths that led to current knowledge, Methods and Techniques reveal the powerful methods used in molecular biology.
