About the book
Biological systems and genetic analysis are described in the first chapter in sufficient detail that no prior college biology course is needed. Properties of macromolecules and macromolecular structures are presented early to provide a framework for understanding nucleic acid and protein biosynthesis, mutation, gene regulation and assembly processes.
