Editorial Reviews

Reviewer: Bruce A. Fenderboy, PhD (Thomas Jefferson University)Description: This is the 3rd edition of an advent to the exciting people of cell biology. As the authors note, "in our people there is no create of issue more astonishing than the living cell." The book"s 20 concise chapters cover topics ranging from membranes and also mitochondria to stem cells and also cancer.

Purpose: The authors" purpose is to "define, in a means that can be interpreted even by a reader approaching modern-day biology for the first time, how the living cell works." This book is acquired in part from the larger textbook by the exact same authors, Molecular Biology of the Cell, fifth edition (Garland Science, 2008). The value of this aconnected book is that it provides "a digestible, straightforward, and also engaging account of just the essential ethics."Audience: This is a superb companion text for undergraduate and graduate-level courses in cell biology (cellular biochemistry). It is written for students across a broad array of life science techniques, consisting of developpsychological biology, biochemistry, and also biophysics. The authors are outstanding research study scientists, noted authors, and also highly related to educators.Features: Readers will suffer a sense of awe and wonder around life on Planet. The authors are mindful of the ancient evolutionary background of cell framework and feature, and also they take time to instruct students on innovative and effective approaches to clinical inquiry. Molecular models highlight examples of biological structure. Full-color illustrations and also photomicrographs are straightforward to understand also and also highlight vital points. Open-ended concerns throughout the book and at the finish of each chapter stimulate critical reasoning and also application of expertise. For instance, one color-coded question box asks: "How carry out cells in plant roots endure, because they perform not have chloroplasts and also are not exposed to sunlight?" (Answers are in the ago of the book.) The CD that is included contains video clips, animations, molecular frameworks and also high-resolution photomicrographs — a genuine treasure trove of ancillary indevelopment for students and also teachers afavor. The inside front cover is filled via beneficial information, including a chart of amino acids and their codons, and also devices of meacertain and other valuable constants and conversions. The book likewise has a glossary.Assessment: The authors organize and define the standard intracellular procedures that are instrumental for life. Large font and also vivid graphics make the book student-friendly. It is in-depth yet concise, and it is polimelted in eextremely detail, from the lively front cover to vivid illustrations and also beautiful photomicrographs that highlight existing study. I appreciated seeing the examples of study techniques, such as the usage of fluorescent tags and antibodies to expose the subcellular localization of biomolecules. This book gives an excellent development to cell biology. It is well written, very closely edited, and a joy to review. I very recommend it for undergraduates and graduate students in the life sciences. Eexceptionally biology department and also health science library need to have actually multiple copies on hand.
