Genomes, second edition edited by Terence A. Brown (Wiley) In the belief that courses on molecular biology should reflect the major research issues on the millennial horizon rather than those of the past decades, Brown offers an undergraduate textbook that focuses on the genome as a whole rather than individual genes.
He recognizes that it is not yet possible to describe the events leading from DNA to protein entirely in terms of genome to proteome, but does attempt to explore the expression of individual genes in the context of the activity and function of the genome as a whole.
Responding to the immense changes due to recent development in research, Genomes is the first in a generation of molecular genetics books which combine standard molecular biology with more contemporary genomics.

The term biology was coined in the late 1700s by the French naturalists Pierre-Antoine de Monet and Jean-Baptiste de Lamarck.
One the central, organizing concepts in biology is that all life has descended from a common origin though a process of evolution.
The evolutionary history of a species, i.e., the characteristics of the species from which it descended, is called the phylogeny of the species; it is studied using methods of molecular biology by analyzing biopolymer sequences of genes and proteins, and by investigating ancient forms of life in paleontology.

Biology is a broad field of study, and its breadth is reflected in the research interests of the faculty members who seek to define biological processes in molecular terms.
Molecular technology from DNA cloning to targeted mutagenesis is being applied and developed in order to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying many biological processes.
The research interests of the faculty in the area of cell and developmental biology range from studies on nucleotide sequences in RNA and DNA through investigations of subcellular organelles, such as microtubules and chromosomes, to analyses of movement in single cells, and embryogeny in higher plants and animals.

Many nonbiological molecular or microscale replicators have been suggested, including several proposals for replicators using molecular-scale positional assembly to be made of extremely durable nonbiological materials such as diamond.
As noted by Aristides Requicha, Director of the Laboratory for Molecular Robotics at the University of Southern California, in 2003 [1317]: “Construction of nanorobots and NEMS [nanoelectromechanical systems] is still in its infancy.
Molecular self-assembly is a strategy for nanofabrication that involves designing molecules and supramolecular entities so that shape- and charge-complementarity causes them to spontaneously aggregate into desired structures [1326].

 Molecular Expressions: Images from the Microscope
As such, live-cell imaging has become a requisite analytical tool in most cell biology laboratories, as well as a routine methodology that is practiced in the wide ranging fields of neurobiology, developmental biology, pharmacology, and many of the other related biomedical research disciplines.
Among the most significant technical challenges for performing successful live-cell imaging experiments is to maintain the cells in a healthy state and functioning normally on the microscope stage while being illuminated in the presence of synthetic fluorophores and/or fluorescent proteins.
Together with the scientists and programmers at Molecular Expressions, Nikon microscopists and engineers are providing the latest state-of-the-art information in microscope optics and imaging technology including specialized techniques such as fluorescence, differential interference contrast (DIC), phase contrast, reflected light microscopy, and microscopy of living cells.

A seventh criticism is that designs of molecular machine systems that resemble forms derived from macroscale machinery might not work [2310], or will be outmoded by better designs in the future because possibly new forms of machinery that might be better suited to the nanoscale have yet to be discovered or invented.
Molecular dynamics simulations of atomically-specified nanoscale gear and pump designs by research groups at NASA [222] and CalTech [223] show that these devices should function well even when operated at speeds well in excess of design specifications.
Most existing molecular machines do not use positional assembly (with the notable exception of the ribosome, which employs positional assembly in a rudimentary form; Section 4.2), and hence need not – and do not – deal with the issue of how to position molecular parts under programmatic control.
