General description

This edition is a massive revision of the previous edition. It is the classic in-depth text reference in cell biology, yet puts the latest hot topics sensibly in context - including genomics, protein structure, array technology, stem cells and genetic diseases. It incorporates and emphasized new genomic data. It not only sets forth the current understanding of cell biology, but also explores the intriguing implications and possibilities of that which remains unknown. It contains over 1,600 illustrations, electron micrographs, and photographs, of which over 1,000 are originally conceived by the authors. "Cell Biology Interactive", a CD-ROM, is packaged with every copy.
