About this book

Reveals the extraordinary degree to which cell cycle control mechanisms have been conserved through eukaryotic evolution.

A collection of review articles written both by and for participants in the field. The chapters are clearly written and carefully referenced.--American Journal of Human Genetics
"An advanced text that provides a solid conceptual framework for understanding cell-cycle regulation. . . .This book will be useful for a long time."--American Scientist
"Uniformly well written and edited, and highly informative. It is a must for anyone entering this field and of high value generally for libraries and laboratories dealing with modern cell biology and problems of growth and development."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
