Summary

Focusing on the structure and function of the cell, this comprehensive new textbook incorporates the latest developments in cell biology. It emphasizes 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. Winner of the Association of Medical Illustrators "Award of Excellence."
