With its acclaimed author team, cutting-edge content, and coverage based on landmark experiments, Molecular Cell Biology has earned an impeccable reputation with instructors, edition after edition. The new Sixth Edition is the Molecular Cell Biology for a new generation, a dramatic revision of the classic text featuring two new co-authors, expanded coverage of immunology and development, and new media tools for students and instructors. NEW TO THIS EDITION * Increased clarity and accessibility, balancing coverage of the latest scientific developments with clear explanations of the fundamentals * New chapters: 'The Molecular Cell Biology of Development', 'Nerve Cells', and 'Immunology'. * Exciting new developments, including expanded coverage of proteomics, updated discussions of chromatin, evolution of chromosomes and the mitochondrion, molecular models, advances in light and electron microscopy, Reaction Oxygen Species (ROS), expanded coverage of RNAi, role of supercomplexes in electron transport, Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptors (HERs), Myosin ATPase cycle, Kinesin 1 ATPase cycle, epithlial0to-mesenchymal transition and cancer, use of retrovirus infection for tracing cell lineage, axon guidance molecules, cancer stem cells, and use of DNA microarray analysis in tumor typing. The book is accompanied by a companion website (... which supports learning and understanding through a wealth of supplementary material including online self-tests; animations and videos showing the dynamic nature of key cellular processes and important experimental techniques; and new podcasts narrated by the authors to give a deeper understanding of key figures in the text and a sense of the thrill of discovery.
UNUSED, LIKE NEW, NOT EX-LIBRARY, scuffed jacket, 1152 pages. This is an authoritative and comprehensive vision of molecular cell biology. Advances in our knowledge of how cells work has driven the discipline to the point where we understand the cell at new levels of complexity such as larger signalling complexes in cells, and cells interacting with other cells. To present this new view of molecular cell biology and the accompanying advances in experimental technology, the fifth edition shows exciting developments in cell birth, lineage and death expanded coverage of signalling systems within the whole cell/organism and expanded coverage of metabolism and movement of lipids. In addition, new pedagogy includes research questions by looking at real experimental data in "analysing the data" problems and "updated perspectives for the future" at the end of each chapter, which explore potential applications of future discoveries and unanswered questions that lie ahead for researchers. The media package includes a companion website with animations, videos and classic experiments covering groundbreaking molecular cell biology experiments to enhance student learning. For instructors there are PowerPoint images from the text solutions and a test bank. Other supplements include an instructor's CD-ROM containing all text images, a conversion guide from the 4th edition test, bank animations and videos, and overhead transparencies. And for students there is the "Working with Molecular Cell Biology, Fifth Edition: A Study Companion and Solutions Manual".
Very good for cell biology, but I need to study a little more molecular biology, and when I do then I'll be able to take advantage of a fairly well covered handling of that topic.

not bad at all
The book came in tip top condition. Better than I expected. Delivery took a little while though. Could definitely be faster.

The book is well written and was chosen by a professor. He will not errors in the book though. Small careless mistakes are found throughout various diagrams. Other than that the book is a great resource and good prepatory material for any Med/Dent/Pharm student.
