About this Book
Molecular biology is revolutionizing human medicine with enormous and far-reaching applications ranging from diagnostic techniques for disease and genetic disorders to the design of drugs and on to gene therapy. With the advent of this new era, Wiley Online Library presents two definitive and authoritative reference works to bring together the converging areas of medicine and molecular biology. Presenting all aspects of medicine relevant at the molecular level as well as the world of molecular biology, the Encyclopedia of Molecular Biology and the Encyclopedia of Molecular Medicine offer a comprehensive overview of both fields. As ideal companions, these two works together sufficiently address the broad spectrum of information needed by both researchers and practitioners in a wide variety of disciplines including genetics, biochemistry, molecular biology, oncology, and infectious disease.
The Encyclopedia of Molecular Biology is derived from the four volume print work published in 1999 containing nearly 1000 articles. All the topics are divided into short, digestible entries. The Encyclopedia of Molecular Medicine brings together those aspects of medicine that have significance at the molecular level, plus advances in molecular biology that are relevant to medicine. With over 1,700 separate primary entries, this comprehensive encyclopedia sets the standard for reference works in this rapidly expanding field. The coverage in Encyclopedia of Molecular Medicine ranges from the organ to the cell to the molecular level and includes extensive cross-referencing. The initial content is derived from the five volume print work published in October 2001. Both encyclopedias include extensive cross-referencing and include about 2,000 images, many in color. With new and revised articles added regularly, these works will stay at the forefront of new developments and future directions in the field.
