The Biochemistry & Molecular Biology of Plants textbook is composed for students ofboth biology and biochemistry. The contents are built around five major, but broad, topic areas. Among these topics, students will find valuable material on cell reproduction, energy flow, metabolic and developmental integration as well as plant environment.
Molecular biology depends not only on biology but also chemistry, genetics, and biochemistry. The understanding of the interactions between DNA, RNA, proteins and lipids is vital in understanding how cells work and how diseases affect these interactions. Researchers and scientists are slowly piecing together these interactions and how each biological molecule functions. By understanding this, scientists can then examine disease conditions, and see if the function of any of the molecules has changed. If a molecule or interaction is affected by disease, scientists can then create therapies which target these alterations and repair them.
