Summary

Lippincott's Illustrated Reviews: Cell and Molecular Biology offers a highly visual presentation of essential cell and molecular biology, focusing on topics related to human health and disease. This new addition to the internationally best-selling Lippincott's Illustrated Reviews Series includes all the popular features of the series: an abundance of full-color annotated illustrations, expanded outline format, chapter summaries, review questions, and case studies that link basic science to real-life clinical situations.
