Because molecular and cellular biology is such an exciting and rapidly moving area of science, teaching it at the un-dergraduate level is a rewarding, yet challenging, task. The Cell: a Molecular Approach meets this challenge by providing students with not only the current information, but also with an introduction to the experimental nature of contemporary research. DesigBecause molecular and cellular biology is such an exciting and rapidly moving area of science, teaching it at the un-dergraduate level is a rewarding, yet challenging, task. The Cell: a Molecular Approach meets this challenge by providing students with not only the current information, but also with an introduction to the experimental nature of contemporary research. Designed for use in introductory cell biology courses, The Cell presents current, comprehensive science in a readable and cohesive text that students can master in the course of one semester. The new third edition of The Cell retains the organization, themes, and special features of earlier editions, but is updated to reflect scientific advances since publication of the second edition, including progress in genome sequencing, advances in understanding transcriptional regulation and mRNA processing, use of DNA microarrays in global studies of gene expression and cancer diagnostics, advances in nuclear transport and protein trafficking, progress in understanding the regulation of programmed cell death, potential medical applications of embryonic cells, and development of oncogene-targeted treatments. Key Experimental boxes in each chapter describe seminal experiments in modern cell biology, showing the detail and background to give students a sense of doing science. Molecular Medicine boxes relate basic science to clinical practice or potential and show the excitement of molecular discovery and solutions to disease. Chapter summaries are organized in outline form corresponding to the major sections and subsections of each chapter. This section-by-section format is coupled with a list of the key terms introduced in eachsection, providing a succinct but comprehensive review of the material. The full-color art program is both pedagogically and scientifically outstanding. In addition, each chapter includes a brief chapter outline, boldfaced key terms (also defined in the glossary), and many new chapter-end questions with answers in the back of the book. With a clear focus on cell biology as an integrative theme, topics such as developmental biology, plant biology, the immune system, the nervous system, and muscle physiology are covered in their broader biological context. The book can be bundled for purchase with a special edition of Molecules, Cells, and Genes, a CD-ROM keyed to the textbook and combining the essential features of a Study Guide and Problems book....

The Cell: A Molecular Approach Reviews
best book for cell biology
Parte de mí, odio leerte.
lots of good illustrations, both schematic drawings with lumpy blobs for all the proteins and also really cool micrographs. i also liked the "key experiment" pages.but the organization was bass ackwards. they started with chemistry, then DNA, then larger structures, until finally the cell cycle. so YOU NEVER KNEW THE BIGGER PICTURE. again and again, they would sort of hint at the larger context and then say "this is discussed in chapter 11" or whatever. the authors made the fatal mistake of so many teachers - they know the subject inside out, so they teach it from the inside out. it makes sense to them that way because they already know all the stuff from later chapters. but the student doesn't. plus, they wrote with no personality at all. not one joke, anecdote, exclamation, etc., in the entire book.finally, it was pretty clear that sometimes they wrote two pages and the publisher said "turn this into half a page" and so it became an ultradense series of technical sentences without explanation.ah, well, i learned a ton, though. most interesting factoid: you can cut out two thirds of a rat's liver and it will grow back as good as new in a few days. wow.
The best book for cell biology.Very illuminating and explanatory :) It helped me a lot.
This is really helpful to increase my acknowledgement of basic science.
like it or not, this is an important book for PostGrad student like me... *sigh*Oh well, let's just take it as a light reading... *lol*
Great book for cell and molecular biology
an excellent book
