Molecular Biology of the Cell is the classic in-depth text reference in cell biology. Written in clear and concise language, and beautifully illustrated, the book is enjoyable to read, and it provides a clear sense of the excitement of modern biology.
This companion to the fourth edition of Albert's (et al.) Molecular Biology of the Cell provides a running commentary of the material in the textbook, raises related questions about scientific knowledge and the process of discovery, and most importantly, presents research- based problems. Chapters cover cells and genomes, cell chemistry and biosynthesis, proteins, DNA and chromosomes, DNA replication and recombination, gene expression, genetic manipulation, membrane structure, membrane transport, intracellular compartments and protein sorting, intracellular vesicular traffic, energy conversion, cell communication, the cytoskeleton, the cell cycle, and cell division. Answers appear in the last third of the volume. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
