The Molecular Biology of RNA

This is the first comprehensive textbook to cover the entire RNA biology field, from nuclear processing to export, editing, splicing, translation, localisation and stability, RNA interference and non-coding RNAs.

The book is intended for anyone interested in RNA, from undergraduate students to post-graduate students, medics, and molecular and evolutionary biologists interested in updating their knowledge of all things RNA.

Throughout, the text provides examples of key discoveries and the scientists involved, as well as select techniques.

The book is concisely written, with lots of figures, references and a glossary to orient the reader. It attempts to draw on cutting edge research in what is a fast moving field.
