Show synopsis Teaching cell biology can be a daunting task because the field is so vast and moving so rapidly. Now for the first time there is a text that meets the needs of today's students and their teachers. Written by active scientists, The Cell: A Molecular Approach combines the readability and cohesiveness of a single-authored text with comprehensive and up-to-date science. The Cell: A Molecular Approach is an undergraduate text on contemporary molecular and cellular biology that is ideally suited in length and complexity for introductory and intermediate courses. The book focuses on the molecular biology of cells as a unifying theme, with topics such as developmental biology, the nervous system, the immune system, and plant biology being discussed as examples of more general principles. Reviews of selected 'Key Experiments' and topics in `Molecular Medicine' highlight the experimental nature of modern cell biology and convey the excitement of research in this area. The Cell: A Molecular Approach is an accessible and teachable text in modern cell biology. Dr Cooper has crafted a book that can be covered in a single term, allowing students to master the material in the entire book, rather than sampling a small fraction from a much larger text. Written in an efficient and compact style, the book covers a broad range of material in a direct and pedagogially approachable manner. This book is intended for undergraduate students in cell biology, molecular biology, and biochemistry courses in science and medical facilities.
