" authoritative and comprehensive clinical reference covering basic science and clinical application...includes color illustrations and is written by some of the world's leading experts in the field." Appropriate for: Reproductive Medicine Researchers, Reproductive Medicine Specialists.

From New England Journal of Medicine

Molecular Biology in Reproductive Medicine is a very useful book that is reasonably priced. The changing fields of molecular biology and reproductive physiology are combined in an easy-to-use format that will appeal to students, researchers, and clinicians alike.

From Booknews

This text describes those molecular processes known to be important in our understanding of reproductive function and which play a significant role in the clinical management of patients. The 23 chapters provide a review of background information required to understand recent developments and to bridge the gap between basic and clinical science in reproduction. Topics include molecular genetics, cell biology, gamete and embryo biology, clinical genetics, genetics of adult reproductive dysfunction, and hormone synthesis, action and signal transduction.
