What is a gene? How is it reproduced? How is it expressed? What controls its expression? This widely used text provides the most current and comprehensive information available in genetics today. Since its first publication in 1983, Genes has been acknowledged as a leader in the field, both as a textbook and as a resource. Through an integrated approach to prokaryotic and eukaryotic biology, it is able to discuss topics in molecular biology and genetics in terms of the approaches actually used by researchers. For this edition, the text has been significantly expanded, thoroughly revised and updated, and further enhanced with the addition of 300 new figures. Two entirely new chapters deal with exciting developments in protein trafficking and eukaryotic gene transcription. A new, extensive introduction to molecular and cell biology now provides essential background material to students, and new end-of-chapter summaries reinforce the major points of each section. Each of the nine major parts of the text is self-contained, allowing maximum flexibility to instructors. The new, larger format ensures greater ease or reading and even sharper illustrations.

Benjamin Lewin took his undergraduate and postgraduate degrees from Cambridge (England). He was then editor of Nature New Biology and a visiting fellow at the National Institutes for Health. He has been editor of Cell, the premier journal in the field, since 1974. He has unique access to the very best of current research results and thinking.
`Lewin provides an invaluable framework for a basic understanding of the eukaryotic gene and its cis and trans controlling elements... It demands, and deserves, to be read chapter by chapter... Get rid of Genes III. Go and buy Genes IV.' TIBS
`this book is impressively succinct, comprehensive, current and authoritative' Oxford Medical School Gazette
'extremely easy to read ... The diagrams are excellent and very helpful to the reader. I found the book a most rewarding read and would recommend it to undergraduates and scientists alike who want an up-to-date overview of how genes function.' John Coote, Society for General Microbiology Quarterly, November 1990
'a comprehensive summary of our current knowledge in Gene Expression ... well written and well illustrated' Professor Bernard Perbal, Universite VI, Paris, Methods in Molecular and Cellular Biology
'The expanded and updated fourth edition represents the current generation of an outstanding lineage. Lewin continues to meet the increasingly difficult challenge of providing a comprehensive review of a most rapidly developing area of contemporary science. This fine work should justifiably find its place on the bookshelves of many virologists.' Olen Kew, Virus Research, 20 (1991)
'Genes IV is not only an updated edition of the excellent molecular biology book by Benjamin Lewin, edge of gene expression ... The book is well written and well illustrated, as were the previous volumes in the series.' Methods in Molecular and Cellular Biology
