Molecular Biology of the Cell

Do you know who Robert Hooke is? You will after digging into Molecular Biology of the Cell by Bruce Alberts. (Oh, OK. We'll dish now – he discovered the cell. In 1665!) And a whole lot more has been discovered, researched, and explored in the 350 years since. Your understanding and new-found appreciation for the basic unit of life will start with studying genomes, cell structure, biosynthesis, and chromosomes before moving onto more advanced concepts such as genetics, cancer therapies, and stem cells. For more than 30 years, Alberts' Molecular Biology of the Cell has dominated the molecular biology textbook market - by keeping a straightforward approach and keeping up with the newest research on our favorite little, complex pal the cell.

As the amount of information in biology expands dramatically, it becomes increasingly important 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 updated with the latest research in the field of cell biology, and it provides an exceptional framework for teaching and learning.

The entire illustration program has been greatly enhanced.Protein structures better illustrate structure–function relationships, icons are simpler and more consistent within and between chapters, and micrographs have been refreshed and updated with newer, clearer, or better images. As a new feature, each chapter now contains intriguing openended questions highlighting “What We Don’t Know,” introducing students to challenging areas of future research. Updated end-of-chapter problems reflect new research discussed in 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.
