An Editorial Board composed of renowned experts from all over the world – Nobel laureates, including the 2007 Nobel Prize winner in medicine, Sir Martin Evans, Lasker Award winners and directors of prestigious institutes and university department – guarantees the high quality and comprehensive scope of this work. All major disciplines comprising and supporting molecular cell biology and molecular medicine are covered in true Encyclopedic detail.
Each of the over 400 articles is conceived as a self-contained treatment and begins with an outline and a keyword section, including definitions. Descriptive illustrations – many in colour -, informative tables and a glossary of basic terms in each volume enable readers to understand articles without the need to consult a dictionary, textbook or other work. Numerous cross-references and a comprehensive bibliography round off every article.
Praise from the reviews:
"... It goes without saying that no library can afford to be without this new edition. Everyone working in the areas of molecular biology, genome research, medical science, or clinical research needs to have access to these volumes... " Angewandte Chemie
"... an authoritative reference source of the highest quality… It is extremely well written and well illustrated..."American Reference Books Annual (Library & Information Science Annual - on the first edition)
