Cell Biology : with Student Consult Online Access 2nd Edition
Cell Biology: With STUDENT CONSULT Online Access by Thomas D. Pollard, Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz, William C. Earnshaw, Graham T. Johnson
This beautifully illustrated and sophisticated molecular cell biology text is appropriate for undergraduates, graduate students and medical students. Clinical examples depict how basic cell biology explains human disease.
Focusing on the structure and function of the cell, this radically new approach to cell biology offers a comprehensive, full-color 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.
* The format of this book was developed by experts in cell biology and field-tested as the basis for a course taught at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine for over 20 years.
* Its concise discussions and relatively short length still cover the essential information found in larger texts, but with a more manageable, readable approach.
* Over 400 outstanding illustrations present concepts in clear diagrams and full-color drawings that show all structures from the molecular level through histology and gross anatomy drawn to-scale for the first time ever.
* Completely up-to-date scientific information incorporates the latest techniques and interpretation of data into the chapters.
