Summary
"The Evolution of Molecular Biology: The Search for the Secrets of Life provides the historical knowledge behind techniques founded in molecular biology as well as an appreciation of how and by whom these discoveries were made. It deals with the evolution of intellectual concepts in the context of active research, in an approachable language for readers with a variety of backgrounds. Each chapter is preceded by a prologue and ends with an epilogue to create continuity and put the contents of individual chapters within the complete framework of molecular biology. This foundational work also functions as a historical and conceptual supplement to many related courses in biochemistry, biology, chemistry, genetics, and history of science. It demonstrates how the roots of discovery and advances--and an individual's own research--have grown out of the history of the field, presenting a more complete understanding and context for scientific discovery."--Page 4 of cover
