Molecular Biology: Academic Cell Update provides an introduction to the fundamental concepts of molecular biology and its applications. It deliberately covers a broad range of topics to show that molecular biology is applicable to human medicine and health, as well as veterinary medicine, evolution, agriculture, and other areas. The present Update includes the study guide with online content, journal specific images, and test bank. It also offers vocabulary flashcards and online self-quizzing called Test Prep.
