Recently, the growing discipline of bioorganic chemistry has witnessed some very exciting results in applying design and synthesis techniques to the most difficult problems in molecular biology. Much of the current work in areas such as protein folding, signal transduction, molecular recognition, monoclonal antibodies, and drug design is being conducted by bioorganic chemists. This book will provide an overview of DNA and RNA, including coverage of biosynthesis, structure, and their functions in information storage and transmission. A review of fundamental material is presented in the first half of each chapter, followed by a fairly detailed research example selected by the chapter author from current research. Bioorganic Chemistry will serve as an extremely valuable reference for researchers in organic, bioorganic, biochemical, pharmaceutical, and medicinal chemistry.
