Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The epitome of what a current upper level textbook in cell biology should be". — Quarterly Review of Biology

"Accessible and relatively easy to read....timely and accurate.... profusely and beautifully illustrated". — American Society for Microbiology News

"A reliable, accurate and up-to-date textbook for which students and researchers must be grateful". — Trends in Biochemical Sciences

"The standard against which other scientific textbooks will be measured". — Biochemical Education

Now generously illustrated in full color and featuring many new panels, drawings, and diagrams, the Third Edition is completely reorganized to reflect new discoveries, new emphases, and new approaches. It covers major advances in signal transduction, intracellular protein sorting, gene regulation, control of cell division, and developmental biology. The biology of plants and the nervous system are integrated into the main text. The Third Edition also extensively updates coverage of immunology and cancer, and adds two new chapters that examine recombinant DNA techniques and proteins as machines.

Book News Annotation:

**** A big, beautiful (now in color throughout), up-to-date survey of cell biology for the introductory university course. The text is divided into four sections: introduction to the cell; molecular genetics; internal organization of the cell; and cells in their social context. Previous editions were published in 1983 (cited in BCL3) and 1989. The present edition is fully reorganized to reflect major advances in signal transduction, intracellular protein sorting, gene regulation, control of cell division, and developmental biology. It also adds new chapters on recombinant DNA techniques and on proteins as machines.
