About the Cover: Yeast RNA Polymerase II Core Enzyme: The RNA polymerase II molecular machine catalyzes the transcription of DNA to yield RNA molecules, most notably precursors of mRNAs that code for protein. The core enzyme, highly conserved among eukaryotes, consists of the protein subunits required for catalytic activity. A DNA template strand and a short segment of transcribed RNA are depicted in red.
