Description of The Cell A Molecular Approach

Learning cell biology can be a daunting task because the field is so vast and rapidly moving, characterized by a continual explosion of new information. The challenge is how to master the fundamental concepts without becoming bogged down in details. The principles of cell biology understand need students and able to appreciate and be able to appreciate new advances, rather than just memorizing “the facts” as we see them today. At the same time, the material must be presented in sufficient depth to thoughtfully engage students and provide a sound basis for further studies. The Eighth Edition of The Cell emphasizes the fundamental concepts of cell biology and includes new features designed to meet the needs of today’s students and their teachers.

This edition of The Cell continues the goal of helping students understand the principles and concepts of cell biology while gaining an appreciation of the excitement and importance of ongoing research in this rapidly moving field. Our understanding of cell and molecular biology has progressed in many ways over the last three years, and these important advances have been incorporated into the current edition. Some of the most striking advances have continued to come from progress in genomics and understanding the complex mechanisms of gene regulation in higher eukaryotes. A new chapter in the current edition Transcriptional Regulation and Epigenetics highlights these rapidly advancing areas. Other notable advances covered in the current edition include progress in proteomics, synthetic biology, mitochondrial replacement therapy, splicing therapy for Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy, and immunotherapy of cancer.
