CELLS, the most cutting-edge textbook in the field, is the ideal resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students entering the world of cell biology, and a useful tool for scientists who wish to learn more about topics outside their field. This important new text provides full coverage of the structure, organization, growth, regulation, movements, and interaction of cells, with an emphasis on eukaryotic cells. Under the direction of Dr. Benjamin Lewin and three expert lead editors, each chapter was prepared by top scientists who specialize in the subject area. All chapters were carefully edited to maintain consistent use of terminology and to achieve a homogeneous level of detail and rigor. Where they are known, the molecular bases for human diseases are discussed in each chapter.
