Description of Lewin's Cells 3rd Edition

Lewin's Cells 3rd Edition written by George Plopper & David sharp is a great book for cell Biology studies available in ebook (PDF) free download. This 3rd edition, expanded and updated from the second, is geared for advanced undergraduate and graduate students taking a first course in cell biology. A key objective in developing this Lewin's Cell book was to present mechanisms and the concepts underlying cell structure and function, gleaned from decades of research, in a format that provides the information necessary with students for cell biology solid foundation, without overwhelming them with too much detail. The major goal of the team of 29 expert authors and lead editors has been to incorporate the current research in the field, thoroughly provide and cover each topic ample cellular processes illustrations at the molecular level but without being unwieldy.

Lewin’s CELLS, 3rd Edition covers the structure, organization, growth, regulation, movement, and interactions of cells with an emphasis on those in the eukaryotic domain. These topics are beginning with the definition of a cell, presented in 21 chapters grouped into seven parts, providing background on basic cellular processes, continuing on to the components of cells, ending with cell diversity and the regulation of cell functions. Prokaryotic cells and Plant cells are covered in separate chapters to emphasize their diversity while highlighting the properties shared by all cells.
