Originally based on a graduate course taught by the author, this true classic has once again been extensively updated to incorporate key new findings in biological signaling. With over half of the content re-written, plus 70 brand new and 50 revised figures, this is the most up-to-date textbook on signaling available anywhere. Thanks to its clear structure, hundreds of illustrative drawings, as well as chapter introductions and newly added study questions, this text excels as a companion for a course on biological signaling, and equally as an introductory reference to the field for students and researchers. Generations of students and junior researchers have relied on "the Krauss" to find their way through the bewildering complexity of biological signaling pathways.

Bioinformatics, which can be defined as the application of computer science and information technology to the field of biology and medicine, has been rapidly developing over the past few decades. It generates new knowledge as well as the computational tools to create that knowledge. Understanding the basic processes in living organisms is therefore indispensable for bioinformaticians. This book addresses beginners in molecular biology, especially computer scientists who would like to work as bioinformaticians. It presents basic processes in living organisms in a condensed manner. Additionally, principles of several high-throughput technologies in molecular biology, which need the assistance of bioinformaticians, are explained from a biological point of view. It is structured in the following 9 chapters: cells and viruses; protein structure and function; nucleic acids; DNA replication, mutations, and repair; transcription and posttranscriptional processes; synthesis and posttranslational modifications of proteins; cell division; cell signaling pathways; and high-throughput technologies in molecular biology.

Presenting the main concepts, this book leads students as well as advanced researchers from different disciplines to an understanding of current ideas in the complex field of comprehensive experimental investigation of biological objects, analysis of data, development of models, simulation, and hypothesis generation. It provides readers with guidance on how a specific complex biological question may be tackled: - How to formulate questions that can be answered - Which experiments to perform - Where to find information in databases and on the Internet - What kinds of models are appropriate - How to use simulation tools - What can be learned from the comparison of experimental data and modeling results - How to make testable predictions. The authors demonstrate how mathematical concepts can illuminate the principles underlying biology at a genetic, molecular, cellular and even organism level, and how to use mathematical tools for analysis and prediction.

Lecture Notes on Molecular Medicine provides a concise and straightforward introduction to molecular biology, explaining how it is used to understand and treat human disease. This new edition has been written in response to exciting changes in this fast-moving field. Fully updated, it explains the human genome project and how the sequence will change medicine. It also covers many new methods that have been introduced since the first edition was published. Beginning with first principles, the book is a useful primer for any science student new to molecular biology and genetics. It is also an invaluable resource for medical students and practicing doctors who need an understanding of how advances in molecular biology have impacted clinical medicine, especially in the fields of gene therapy and screening. For ease of use Lecture Notes on Molecular Medicine is divided into four sections: Basic Principles: describing the fundamentals of DNA structure and function that underpin molecular biology Biomolecular Tools: covering the manipulation of DNA and RNA and molecular techniques. Understanding Genetics: covering the basic principles of inheritance, biodiversity, gene mapping and expression and gene therapy. Molecular Medicine in Practice: discussing the profound effect which molecular biology has had on medical practice at all levels. This chapter has been greatly expanded in this new edition to cover all the latest developments in the field. A concise introduction to the basic principles & applications of molecular medicine. Explains complicated science in simple terms with clear diagrams. Integrates basic and clinical science by emphasising application to clinical medicine. Expanded chapter examining molecular medicine in clinical practice.
