Overview

The Fourth Edition of World of the Cell and Biology Place presents readers with solid information without being encyclopedic. The book continues the tradition of the prior editions, making concepts clear and readable. The fourth edition builds upon that by dividing each section into conceptual sections, with each section introduced by a heading that summarizes the concept of the section. The book places a greater emphasis on Signal Transduction than earlier editions, as well as expanded, updated coverage of cell-cell interactions and recognition. The authors also introduce new material on archebacteria and update contemporary topics like AIDS and cloning. The new edition also features a stronger emphasis on experimental approaches and results, with the authors providing supporting experimental evidence.
