Book Title: Molecular Biology of the Gene, 4th edition

Author: Watson, Hopkins, Roberts, Steitz and Weiner

Book Description:

As chemistry major, I didn't study molecular biology during my undergraduate course work. When I decided to shift my research area to molecular biology, I bought this book to study molecular biology myself. It was very hard to understand basis of molecular biology by just reading book, but it established my foundation of molecular biology. Since I joined at Penn State as a faculty of biochemistry and molecular biology department, I have been teaching molecular biology course and using newer edition of this book for educating future molecular biologists. This is the most important book to establish my research carrier as well as an educator. I provided the book I bought 20 years ago to the Libraries’ collection.
