"Concise and current. A great text for undergraduates." - Steve Wright, Carson Newman College
"Provides a current, comprehensive, and balanced approach on the topic of molecular biology. The organization of the topics, artwork, and presentation of the material are all very well done. The organization of the chapters allows the instructor to present the material at various levels of detail suitable to the background of the students." - Rey Sia, Brockport College
"Clearly summarizes the core information of contemporary molecular biology. Explanations are clear and straightforward, nicely balancing prokaryotic and eukaryotic material.
The explosion of genomic information could overwhelm any student (or author), but the authors build a coherent framework for understanding molecular biology with its consistent focus on the regulation of gene expression, providing a unifying theme for the book." - Chris Cole, University of Minnesota, Morris
"An engaging textbook that is both thorough and interesting; a rare thing today with textbooks that read like encyclopedias and dictionaries.
" - Doug Burks, Wilmington University
