As the quantity of information in biology expands dramatically, it becomes an increasing number of essential for textbooks to distill the vast amount of scientific knowledge into concise principles and enduring concepts.As with previous editions, Molecular Biology of the Cell, Sixth Edition accomplishes this goal with clear writing and beautiful illustrations. The Sixth Edition has been extensively revised and Up to date with the recent research within the field of cell biology, and it provides a fantastic framework for teaching and learning.
The entire illustration program has been greatly enhanced.Protein structures better illustrate structure–serve as relationships, icons are simpler and more consistent within and between chapters, and micrographs have been refreshed and Up to date with newer, clearer, or better images. As a new feature, each and every chapter now incorporates intriguing openended questions highlighting “What We Don’t Know,” introducing students to challenging areas of future research. Up to date end-of-chapter problems reflect new research discussed within the text, and these problems have been expanded to all chapters by adding questions on developmental biology, tissues and stem cells, pathogens, and the immune system.
