Focusing on the structure and function of the cell, this radically new approach to cell biology offers a comprehensive, full-colour look at the subject and the latest developments in the field. It emphasises specific macromolecular interactions and their relation to cellular structure and function, and covers such areas as chemical building blocks, assembly, major organelles and components of the cell, cell cycle, cellular regulation, gene expression, viruses, energy interconversions, and more.
This book contains everything you want to know and more about cells. Each section covers a topic by beginning with the basic molecules and background principles and then continuing up to how these give full physiological function.
It is well designed because it contains lots of detail on each subject without drowning out key information for understanding. There are separate boxes on most pages, containing key principles and helpful summary tables alongside many excellent diagrams and research figures. It has been updated from the first edition with the inclusion of the latest research findings and there has also been an effort made to reduce jargon. I would recommend this book for a person wanting to conduct research who needs solid baseline knowledge of cell biology.
