Lecture Molecular biology (Fifth Edition): Chapter 2 - Robert F. Weaver

Before we begin to study in detail the structure and activities of genes, and the experimental evidence underlying those concepts, we need a fuller outline of the adventure that lies before us. Thus, in this chapter and in chapter 3, we will fl esh out the brief history of molecular biology presented in chapter 1. In this chapter we will begin this task by considering the behavior of genes as molecules.
