Cell and molecular biology
A clearly written presentation of the structure and function of cells in plants, microbes, and animals. Discusses current tools and techniques of cell biology as well as major experiments that led to our present understanding of the field. Topics include the chemical composition, microscopic structure, and arrangement of cell organelles; basic chemical and biochemical reactions that occur in these parts; the energetics of cell reactions; and biomechanical and photochemical reactions. This edition is updated with the latest developments, such as research on ATP bonding during muscle contraction and the latest information on RNA transcription. Extensive, imaginative illustrations will enhance students' comprehension of the concepts explored.
