New Book from Dr Lynne Cox

'Molecular Themes in DNA Replication'

Dr Lynne Cox, a University Lecturer in the department, has her first book published at the end of September.

'Molecular Themes in DNA Replication' is written by experts in the field, both well-established researchers and some new 'rising stars' in the field.

DNA replication has historically been studied from the perspective of cell biology and genetics. Dr Cox and contributors take a refreshing new approach to the subject by grouping replication components and processes in terms of structural features and biochemical similarities. The emphasis on mechanisms and the relationship between structure-function provides the reader with insights into the latest research in the area.

The book also highlights novel drug targets that can be used in the treatment of diseases including cancer, malaria and mitochondrial disorders.

'Molecular Themes in DNA Replication' is written for researchers at all levels across a range of subjects including biochemistry, biological chemistry and cell biology. It will be useful for researchers in pharma and industry as well as undergraduates in Biochemistry and the biological sciences.

The book can be ordered through the Royal Society of Chemistry:
