Description

General description

This second edition provides a structured approach to learning by covering all the important topics in a uniform, systematic format. Each topic begins with a summary of all essential facts, an ideal revision checklist, followed by detailed explanation and clear, simple diagrams. Topics covered include cells and macromolecules, protein structure, properties of nucleic acids, prokaryotic and eukaryotic chromosome structure, and DNA replication.
