Featuring more than 10,000 references and lavishly complemented by over 700 high-quality illustrations, DNA Repair and Mutagenesis, 2nd Edition, is a timely update to the original edition published in 1995. The addition of three new authors, including an expert in the field of structural biology, ensures a comprehensive review of the most current research in diverse subject areas. An ideal textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, the book is also an essential resource for all scientists researching cellular responses to DNA damage. Completely reorganized, the new edition presents a significant overhaul of the existing chapters and introduces important new material…

Richard D. Wood is an Honorary Research Fellow in the Civil and Computational Engineering Centre at Swansea University. He has over 20 years experience of teaching the course Nonlinear Continuum Mechanics for Finite Element Analysis at Swansea University, which he originally developed at the University of Arizona and also taught at IIT Roorkee, India and the Institute of Structural Engineering at the Technical University in Graz. Dr Wood's academic career has focused on finite element analysis, and he has written over 60 papers in international journals, and many chapter contributions, on topics related to nonlinear finite element analysis.
