Summary "Introduction to Molecular Biology, Genomics and Proteomics for Engineers is dedicated to broadening the background and piquing the interest of those seeking self study in this globally vested yet largely unchartered field. With a sound approach to this intricately complex area, the book illustrates the biochemical relations that permit life to exist. It hones in on the specialized organic molecules in living organisms and how they interact and react." "The book successfully conveys the human progress in the manipulation of genomes at the molecular level. Consequently, it allows for a greater appreciation of the incredible complexity of the biochemical systems required to sustain life in its many forms."--BOOK JACKET.
