What better tribute to the late Joel Keizer than to expand his unfinished accounts of teaching and research to a splendid book. Computational Cell Biology performs much more than it promises, for it also deals with considerable analytical material and with aspects of molecular biology. There's something for everybody interested in how modeling leads to greater understanding in the core of the biological sciences. -Lee Segel (Weizmann Institute)
