The Cell: A Molecular Approach is an easily understood and concise introduction to the molecular biology of cells, ideally suited in length and complexity for undergraduate-level courses. This unique book has been crafted to meet the need of today's students and their teachers by combining the readability and cohesiveness of a single-authored text with comprehensive and up-to-date science.

Unlike other larger books where only a small fraction of the content can be sampled or understood, The Cell's language and writing are so efficient and manageable that all the information in the book can be covered in a single semester, providing a good foundation in this subject.

The Cell presents a good balance of topics in a clean and concise manner and combines a lucid sketch of the history of molecular genetics with a thorough description of the techniques of modern molecular biology. This new text provides both the necessary fundamentals of this subject as well as the more advanced concepts but without getting lost in too many details. A text extensively reviewed by more than 70 scientific experts, The Cell is ideally suited in length and complexity for sophomore- and junior-level courses. The book focuses on the molecular biology of cells as a unifying theme, with topics such as developmental biology, the nervous system, the immune system, and plant biology being discussed as examples of more general principles. Reviews of selected Key Experiments and topics in Molecular Medicine highlight the experimental nature of modern cell biology and convey the excitement of research in this area.

"...co-published by ASM Press and Sinauer Associates, this basic-level text focuses on the unifying themes of cell and molecular biology, & integrates coverage of such areas as developmental biol., plant biol., the nervous system, etc."

Editorial Reviews

Tailored in length and complexity specifically for an introductory sophomore or junior course. With the molecular biology of cells as the unifying theme, explores such topics as cell structure and function, developmental biology, the nervous and immune systems, and plant biology. Each chapter includes a section on experimentation and medical applications to alert students that there is more to the subject than the classroom. Illustrated in color throughout. An accompanying CD-ROM contains mini-courses on selected topics from the text with animation to demonstrate the dynamics of cell behavior. Co-published with ASM Press. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
New edition of a text that provides an accessible introduction to cell and molecular biology. Using biology of cells as the unifying theme and specialized topics as examples of more general principles, Cooper (biology, Boston U.) presents 15 chapters that discuss introductory material (an overview of cells and cell research, chemistry of cells, and fundamentals of molecular biology), the flow of genetic information, cell structure and function, and cell regulation. Contains color diagrams and charts. Oversize: 9x11.25<">. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
