Editorial Review
From Book News, Inc.
Some 500 scientists from 15 nations discuss current trends in biological structure and motion. Volume 1, Human genome initiative & DNA recombination, examines the biological and physical strategies that form the underpinning of the US Human Genome Program, an organized program to map and sequence the human genome. Volume 2, DNA protein complexes and proteins starts with the exploration of the in vivo occurrence of unusual DNA structures and goes on to investigate a variety of topics related to the structural dynamics of proteins and peptides. Volume 3, DNA & RNA, opens with a major 38-page article "What do we really know about B-DNA?" by Richard E. Dickerson of UCLA, and then examines many aspects of DNA and RNA structures. The whole three volumes make for a most impressive accomplishment, with production values far above the norm. No index. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
