Looking at Ribozymes: From Atomic to Molecular and Cellular Scales introduces ideas on how ribozymes ?work” through a comparison of their common features and specificities. It covers how the (macro) molecular organization at different scales make it possible, what function they carry, where are they found, how they evolved, and how have they been used? The book emphasizes common and specific features of natural and artificial ribozymes, from the basics, to more advanced aspects, making it ideal for undergraduates, grad students and researchers. Specific sections cover different areas of research, from the atomic scale (catalysis), to the molecular (folding, dynamics).

In addition, other sections cover macromolecular and cellular scales (dynamics, long-range interactions, self-assembly, cellular processes). The book is not a directory of ribozymes, it instead provides comparative knowledge, including the interdependent relationships between the different scales of description based on different experimental and theoretical approaches.
