Book News Annotation:

This attractive, accessible, visually oriented text covers the fundamentals of cell biology required to understand biomedical and broader issues that affect students' lives. This third edition contains new updated material on topics such as chromosome structure and epigenetics, cell-cell recognition, stem cells, and genome evolution. Material on the cell cycle and cell division has been integrated into one chapter. Updated 'How We Know' boxes describe experiments that illustrate how biologists tackle important questions and how their experimental results shape future ideas. In-text margin questions are designed to stimulate student thinking, and may have more than one valid answer. Other pedagogical features include key concepts and terms, a glossary, and chapter-ending review questions, with answers providing commentary and alternative perspectives. The color art program offers a wealth of photos, images, and explanatory diagrams on every page, and the clever cover art features psychedelic colors and a mock-up of The Beatles' album cover Help, starring the text's eight authors in costumes. The companion DVD-ROM contains video clips of actual cellular processes, animations, illustrations of molecular structures, and high-resolution micrographs designed to complement material in individual chapters. Alberts teaches biochemistry and biophysics at the University of California-San Francisco. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Essential Cell Biology provides an accessible introduction to the fundamental concepts of cell biology. Its lively writing and exceptional illustrations make it the ideal textbook for a first course in cell and molecular biology. The text and figures are easy-to-follow, accurate, clear, and engaging for the introductory student. Molecular detail has been kept to a minimum in order to provide the reader with a cohesive, conceptual framework of the basic science that underlies our current understanding of biology.

The Third Edition is thoroughly updated scientifically, yet maintains the academic level and size of the previous edition. The book is accompanied by a Media DVD-ROM with over 130 animations and videos, all the figures from the book, and a new self-test quizzing feature for students.
