Description :

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; it covers the basics in all aspects of molecular biology, from biochemistry and evolution to molecular medicine and biotechnology.

A reader who has mastered the information in The Processes of Life is ready to move on to more complex material in almost any area of contemporary biology.

“The Processes of Life is an excellent introduction to molecular biology… . By deconstructing an exceedingly complicated body of information into a set of core principles, Hunter provides the reader with a framework for grasping the strengths and challenges of modern biology... this book’s clarity and frankness make it an invaluable resource for any person, from any profession, seeking an introduction to molecular biology.”

—Andrea L. Suárez

“Larry Hunter has once again taken a complicated field and reduced it to a set of key principles and associated examples. His writing style mirrors his personality—enthusiastic, frank, and to the point. This book is a great way for those with a technical background to get up to speed on modern biology and the wealth of challenges it provides.”

—Russ B. Altman
