Editorial Review
From Book News, Inc.
Volume 1, DNA, reviews the current state of research in the field through 26 articles by leading researchers. The introduction summarizes earlier developments, such as the Monte Carlo method, molecular dynamics, and computer simulation. The articles themselves address the application of these and other techniques to the investigation into the nature and behavior of biological molecules, in this volume focusing on DNA. Volume 2, Proteins, provides similar coverage in 24 articles. Both volumes include color plates to clarify phenomena where color-coding techniques are useful. The volumes are available individually (v.1, 33-0; v.2, 34-9). Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
