This fourth edition of Essential Cell Biology PDF has been extensively revised. Every part of the book has been brought up to date, with new material on regulatory RNAs, induced pluripotent stem cells, cell suicide and reprogramming, the human genome, and even Neanderthal DNA.
The Book Contents:
Many new figures have been added and have updated the coverage of many exciting new experimental techniques—including RNAi, optogenetics, the applications of new DNA sequencing technologies, and the use of mutant organisms to probe the defects underlying human disease. At the same time, the “How We Know” sections continue to present experimental data and design, illustrating with specific examples how biologists tackle important questions and how their experimental results shape future ideas.
A central feature of the book is the many questions that are presented in the text margins and at the end of each chapter. These are designed to provoke students to think carefully about what they have read, encouraging them to pause and test their understanding. Many questions challenge the student to place the newly acquired information in a broader biological context, and some have more than one valid answer. Others invite speculation. Answers to all the questions are given at the end of the book; in many cases these provide a commentary or an alternative perspective on material presented in the main text.
The explosion of new imaging and computer technologies continues to provide fresh and spectacular views of the inner workings of living cells.
