About this series
This series gives an insight into the most current, cutting edge topics in molecular biology, including applications in biotechnology and molecular medicine. In the recent years, the progress of research in the frontier area of molecular and cell biology has resulted in an overwhelming amount of data on the structural components and molecular machineries of the cell and its organelles and the complexity of intra- and intercellular communication. The molecular basis of hereditary and acquired diseases is beginning to be unravelled, and profound new insights into development and evolutionary biology, as well as the genetically driven formation of 3D biological architectures, have been gained from molecular approaches. Topical volumes, written and edited by acknowledged experts in the field, present the most recent findings and their implications for future research. This series is indexed in PubMed.
