Product Description

Review

"Throughout the book, emphasis is placed not just on what 'we know' but also on 'how we know' and 'what remains to be discovered'- important for engaging and enthusing students....A quarter of a century after the first edition revolutionised cell biology textbooks, the new edition is as fresh, comprehensive and above all, as readable as ever....Like its predecessors, this is a superb textbook for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students."

-British Society for Developmental Biology Newsletter, Summer 2008, Vol. 29, No. 1

"Professors, lecturers, and instructors will find the fifth edition of the book Molecular Biology of the Cell and its accompanying Problems Book to be an excellent choice for guiding their students through the maze of the cell's molecular structures and biochemical processes....With countless colorful illustrations and a large number of photographs and tables, reading the text becomes not only an educational experience, but also a highly enjoyable one for those students who wish to discover the inner workings of the magnificent cellular machine....Educators will also find the DVD-ROM to be a rich electronic resource when compiling their lectures....No less important is the Problems Book, which contains numerous exercises and questions that are an integral part of the learning process, and that teachers, instructors, and students are sure to appreciate."

The Quarterly Review of Biology, September 2008, Volume 83, Number 3

This a wonderfully clearly written book. It provides the fundamentals of cell biology and stimulates many questions that help to expand understanding. It comes with a DVD with diagrams and animations that are not so easy to get working and are tricky to access. Also there are extra chapters on the DVD which cover further advanced topics. The first three chapters are an excellent review of basic molecular biology. Subsequent chapters are reasonably up to date and cover a wide range of topics in some depth. There are questions at the end of each chapter that are thought provoking and can be used to test your understanding of the topics covered. Some questions require you to think out of the box - ergo stimulating. If you are working on your own through this book the questions are a great help in checking your level of understanding. There is a companion book which provides answers to the questions which if used judiciously offers wonderful insights into the most exciting area of science at the start of the 21st century. I am so happy to have discovered a gem of a book in Molecular Biology of the Cell.

Im currently in my second year of a Microbiology degree and this book was recommended as one of the core reading materials. I've read 4 chapters already and the book does help to grasp the timeline and information of what we know of genes thus far. It's written straight forward, has good flow plus the diagrams are perfect for me (visual learner). Would recommend this for anyone who has a basic understanding of biology, maybe college level/1st year of a degree, and wants to really dig into DNA, genetics, protein synthesis etc.
Not your typical boring biochem textbook.

If you really have to learn cell biology, buy this book. It can be hard to read, but just take your time and use the figures, and you'll learn everything. This is the best cell biology book I've ever read or seen.

I'm not studying biology, but I got this book after watching a TV programme about the inner working of the cell. This textbook is interesting and easy to read, and I've learned a lot about ribosomes and enzymes and the wonders of evolution. Recommended.

I am a Biomedical Science student and purchased this book and this is way beyond I have expected. Excellent delivery! Good parcel packaging and it has enormous information which any Medical Science Student or any Science related course students need. My only concern with this book is its cover. I know that this is only a paperback version but the front and back cover of the book aren't hard enough and tend to have folds in it. But content wise, I recommend this book to everyone as you can still use this book throughout your whole course.

I got his as it was a recommended text for my cell biology module of the degree, and I have found this really helpful since I got it. The book is very detailed and provides diagrams to help illustrate some points. Also the disk is very useful as it contains images that you could pint off and use yourself, or that you could use in your essays or projects.
