A First Course in Systems Biology by Eberhard Voit
5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 15 Mar 2013
I totally agree with the previous reviewer. This book fills a gap in the market; it is accessible for biologists and covers the most relevant topics in Systems Biology. Length and design are great. Nice book!

1.0 out of 5 stars disintegrates easily, 20 Nov 2008
I bought this memory stick 6 weeks ago. Two weeks ago I put it in my computer and when I wanted to pull it out again, I only held the rubber case in my hand, leaving the electronics bit in the USB port.

Learning outcome:
a) do not pull out of the usb port by only touching the key ring rubber bit
b) probably don't buy it to start with

What am I supposed to do, print the 300 missing pages? If you want the complete book you have to buy the hardback version, currently at about 100- I guess this was a trick of the publisher to rip of libraries, at least our library decided to buy the complete book at… Read more
