Changes to this edition include new sections on neuroengineering, molecular biology molecular biology, scientific study of the molecular basis of life processes, including cellular respiration, excretion, and reproduction. The term molecular biology was coined in 1938 by Warren Weaver, then director of the natural sciences program at the Rockefeller , bionanotechnology, bioinformatics, infrared lighting, and ethics. All sections have been revised. The volume is meant as an introduction or review text for students, and as a reference for professionals.
