      brilliant

      What can't you find in this textbook? It's a fantastic reference for those studying cell biology, biochemistry, immunology and oncology - everything you would need to know for an undergraduate course, especially your first year is covered in this book.

      I've found it to be the one book i've used the most studying BSc Biochemistry. It's very clear, and the pictures and diagrams are very clear and helpful - so much so that lecturers often refer to it. Whenever I don't understand something I refer to this book as my first port of call. I haven't used any other book for my pathology or immunology units, and it has so far done the trick!

      The version with the CD provides extra content which is accessible via your computer - helpful as this is a LOT of information!

      I would definitely reccommend this to potential and existing undergraduate students alike, it is worth it.

        This book is tremendous, I bought the third edition when I started as an undergrad at Cambridge and still find it useful when revising for my finals...eek! It is well thought out, dealing with complex issues at a simple level first, then advancing toward the frontiers of current knowledge. If you're interested in molecular biology then this is the best place to start. Likewise if you're starting a biology degree soon be assured that this book will be on your reading list. Buy it now!

      • Product Details

        This volume is a text reference in cell biology. By extracting the fundamental concepts from this enormous and ever-growing field, the authors tell the story of cell biology, and create a coherent framework through which non-expert readers may approach the subject. It sets forth the current understanding of cell biology (completely updated as of Autumn 2001), and it explores the intriguing implications and possibilities of the great deal that remains unknown. The hallmark features of previous editions continue in the fourth edition. The book contains a single-column layout and includes over 1600 photographs, electron micrographs, and original drawings by the authors.
