" The Processes of Life is an excellent introduction to molecular biology and, at only $40, a tremendous value. By deconstructing an exceedingly complicated body of information into a set of core principles, Hunter provides the reader with a framework for grasping the strengths and challenges of modern biology... this book"s clarity and frankness make it an invaluable resource for any person, from any profession, seeking an introduction to molecular biology." Andrea L. Suarez, PhD and Robert P. Dellavalle, MD, PhD, MSPH Journal of the American Medical Association


Recent research in molecular biology has produced a remarkably detailed understanding of how living things operate. Becoming conversant with the intricacies of molecular biology and its extensive technical vocabulary can be a challenge, though, as introductory materials often seem more like a barrier than an invitation to the study of life. This text offers a concise and accessible introduction to molecular biology, requiring no previous background in science, aimed at students and professionals in fields ranging from engineering to journalism--anyone who wants to get a foothold in this rapidly expanding field. It will be particularly useful for computer scientists exploring computational biology. A reader who has mastered the information in <I>The Processes of Life </I>is ready to move on to more complex material in almost any area of contemporary biology.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Must Read for Computer Scientists Involved in Bioinformatics 14. März 2010
Von J. Johnston - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
In the first chapter, Hunter offers the Computer Scientist (or anyone with training in the physical sciences) with a critical observation about Biology that is essential to understanding your work in the emerging field of Bioinformatics - Biology offers no unifying patterns or laws. In this regard, the author relates how a Nobel Prize winning Physicist referred to biologists (somewhat derisively, but not wholly inaccurately) as "stamp collectors". For a person such as myself with over 20 years in the physical sciences, this was an important revelation, in that applying computational techniques to biological data cannot be "cook-booked" as is common practice in other disciplines. Indeed, these are unique problems that (a least for the time being) require customized solutions.

Hunter provides an enlightening exploration of biological principles, major fields of study, and most importantly, terminology that computer scientists will well appreciate. Throughout the book, the author offers useful parallels between "computer think" and "biology think" that I have found invaluable in the way I tackle computational problems for the biologists with whom I work.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent intro into molecular biology 31. Januar 2014

As an IT professional delving in molecular world, its an excellent starting point; methodically and elegantly introducing each complex concepts.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Pretty cool book for the price (Kindle Edition) 5. Dezember 2013

I ended up choosing this particular book as a starting point to understand more about molecular biology, and I wasn't too disappointed. Most molecular biology textbooks are rampant with assumed knowledge that makes it difficult for people with backgrounds in computer science, math, physics, etc. This book does do a great job of presenting a decent introduction to current knowledge, trends, technologies, and even politics of molecular biology.

-Decent historical overviews of beliefs of evolution of processes throughout the discussion.
-Does a great job of giving you the gist of biological processes. This is important since there are differences among all life in terms of structure and processes, even for the same function.
-Highlights the need to recognize the point of a function and not memorization of the components involved. Does go over glycolysis, z-scheme, and cellular respiration in detail, but again, it does this without trying to force memorization.
-Explains current research areas and exciting developments, along with reasons why this is important.
-Has a great section on bioethics that doesn't chose any particular side, but highlights current legislation trends and issues, discusses morality differences, and highlights the value and lack of value of certain biological technologies.
-Lists industry standards of topics at the end of the chapter to read for further reading.

-Did not really explain details of antibodies or antigens in terms of their structure. Kind of disappointed, but this seems to be a fuzzy topic anyways based on the wiki page for antigens.
-Was pretty disappointed with the discussion on sequencing and microarrays, mostly because the definition of antibodies and antigens wasn't as verbose, leading with questions as to how these technologies work.

The book is pretty approachable to most people. There isn't any real math, and would make a decent layman's reader for someone just interested in the subject. Overall I was pretty pleased since this is a nice foundation to learn terminology for more focused books.
