Main Question or Discussion Point

Does anyone have any online introduction books in molecular biology or biochemistry (pref in .pdf)? I have searched but didnt manage to find any. Its not for any specific course, i just want to learn about it on my own.

Within the NCBI books, Molecular Biology of the Cell by Alberts et al. and Stryer's biochemistry books are excellent resources on molecular/cell biology and biochemistry, respectively. Here are the links to the tables of contents:

Alberts
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/bv.fcgi?call=bv.View..ShowTOC&rid=mboc4.TOC&depth=2

Stryer
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/bv.fcgi?&rid=stryer

Unfortunately, NCBI won't let you navigate using the table of contents. Instead, you have to use the search feature to find the relevant sections of the books.

Alberts is perhaps the standard text for molecular biology students. "baby Alberts" is perhaps better for an introduction though... Look for it in a university library if there's one around it's called "Essential Cell Biology" and has I think all the same authors as the larger book.

I don't know if it's actually a better book for you but it might be, depending on what you want to learn...

Thanks for the replies! I found this site too:
http://freebiologybooks.blogspot.com/
This site has loads of books, all in .pdf format. Most of the links doesnt work, but some actually do.
