More importantly, the detailed studies summarized in these chapters that relate properties of the molecular components to the function of the switch establish a high standard for the systems biology of more complex organisms. Periodic update of a book like this is important as a reminder of the level of our understanding of a system, in this case lambda, and of how we achieved that understanding. Switch back! The author has a talent for simplifying but not oversimplifying complicated ideas, he describes the theory and its experimental basis in a straightforward and plainspoken way, and he illustrates his points with drawings that contain just the right amount of detail.
Connoisseurs will appreciate the new chapter on recent developments, in which some parts of the original picture are redrawn and others filled in I strongly recommend the new edition of A Genetic Switch to students of molecular biology from the advanced undergraduate level up.
The author and publisher are to be commended for supplying this volume at such a reasonable price. Ptashne's own research contributions to the story are substantial. His research and The Genetic Switch are both characterized by an insistence on asking and pursuing critical questions until an unusual experimental observation is completely understood, often resulting in unexpected new insights This current edition of The Genetic Switch is compelling both because of the new information it contains and because the lessons of the version are timeless.
