Genetic investigation and manipulation of bacteria and bacteriophages have made vital contributions to the understanding of living cells and the development of genetic engineering and biotechnology. This new edition has been extensively revised to reflect the rapid advances in the field. It also includes a greater discussion of evolutionary issues and contains extensive problem sets. 205 illus.All known cells contain DNA, and the physical structure of a DNA molecule is generally assumed to be some variant of the double helical structure proposed by James Watson and Francis Crick. This structure has a built-in chemical polarityanbsp;...
