Essential Cell Biology provides an accessible introduction to the basic concepts of cell biology. Its energetic writing and exceptional illustrations make it the fitting textbook for a first course in cell and molecular biology. The text and figures are easy-to-follow, accurate, clear, and engaging for the introductory student. Molecular detail has been kept to a minimum with a purpose to give you the reader with a cohesive, conceptual framework of the fundamental science that underlies our current working out of biology.
The Third Edition is thoroughly up to date scientifically, yet maintains the educational level and size of the previous edition. The book is accompanied by a Media DVD-ROM with over 130 animations and videos, the entire figures from the book, and a new self-test quizzing feature for students.
