Product Description


"Lecture Notes on Molecular Medicine...belonging to the very successful Lecture Notes series, it is the ultimate ′designer publication′ – snappy and brimming with illustrations from the desktop publishers′ identikit." Molecular Medicine Today

"It is concise, well written, clearly illustrated and precisely laid–out." St George′s Hospital Medical Gazette

"In conclusion, a well written and very readable book. I would suggest that for first and second MB students, who are learning from first principles, the book should be used alongside a more detailed text. But for higher years and postgraduates it is an excellent revision aid." 3rd Year Medical Student – St Mary′s Medical School Gazette

Published Reviews of Second Edition

"The ′Lecture Notes′ series of books, famous for their concise approach to complex subjects, is very popular amongst students.

...The presentation and delivery of information is good, with an emphasis on brevity.

...the 2nd edition is definitely a big improvement on the 1st, with the authors seemingly responding to reader comments and criticisms.

...Anyone actively looking for a new book on molecular medicine should consider this title."

Third Year Medical Student, Guy′s, King′s, St. Thomas′ Medical School

From the Back Cover

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 the exciting changes in this fast–moving field. Fully updated, it explains the human genome project and how the sequence will change medicine, and covers many new methods that have been introduced since the first edition was published.

Beginning as it does 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 junior and practising doctors who need an understanding of how advances in molecular biology have impacted on 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.

Format: Paperback
As a specialist registrar in histopathology, I decided I needed to get to grips with molecular biology, a subject that scares the pants off most pathologists. My first port of call was a little book I remembered from my student days in its first edition. The second edition is obviously bang up to date and demystifies all that DNA stuff from lectures many years ago. If you are thinking of rediscovering the field like me, start right here before going on to the really meaty books like Strachan & Read's Human Molecular Genetics. Highly recommended.
