Overview

Balances coverage of the concepts of cell and molecular biology, using examples of experimentation to support those concepts. As experimental techniques become more diverse and complex, it is increasingly necessary to identify individual studies that have a broad impact on our understanding of cell biology. This text describes in detail some of the key experimental findings, along with the original data and figures. This edition features a new chapter on immunology, chapter overviews, modification to figures, and the latest experimental data is incorporated.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
New edition of a text that emphasizes fundamental concepts, such as the relationship between molecular structure and function, the dynamic character of cellular organelles, the mechanisms that regulate cellular activities, as well as the use of chemical energy in running cellular activities and ensuring accurate macromolecular biosynthesis, unity and diversity at the macromolecular and cellular levels. The 18 chapters include new topics such as the use of molecular techniques to discover previously unsuspected prokaryote diversity, energy landscape models of protein unfolding, photoinhibition of the photosynthetic machinery of chloroplasts by bright light, recent insights from the sequencing of the human genome, and other information that has emerged since the last edition. The included CD-ROM contains animations of text illustrations and self tests. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Booknews
Intended for use in the single semester or two-quarter sophomore or junior year university course in cellular and molecular biology, this text presents an experimental approach to the field. Additions to this second edition include increased coverage of immunology, additional segments, and updated illustrations, as well as general editing and condensing. Includes a fairly detailed glossary of key terms and concepts. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
