This edition features: new chapters on recombinant DNA technology and genetic analysis, reflecting the major role of recombinant DNA and genetic techiques in modern cell biology; a new Chapter One that defines the book's organization and philosophy and its central dogma (that to understand cells you must understand proteins, and to understand proteins you must understand genes); a new chapter devoted solely to proteins; material on cell evolution now integrated throughout, instead of confined to a late chapter; discussions of new techniques, including electrophoretic mobility shift assays, DNA footprinting, gene replacement and transgenic animals, and role of sex lethal gene in sex determination of fruitflies; expanded coverage of developmental genetics, particularly regulation of genes in developmental processes (such as the biocoid gene); and a new part-opener, chapter-opener design.

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.
