As the amount of information in biology expands dramatically, it becomes increasingly important for textbooks to distill the vast amount of scientific knowledge into concise principles and enduring concepts. As with previous editions, Molecular Biology of the Cell, Sixth Edition accomplishes this goal with clear writing and beautiful illustrations. The Sixth Edition has been extensively revised and updated with the latest research in the field of cell biology, and it provides an exceptional framework for teaching and learning.

The entire illustration program has been greatly enhanced. Protein structures better illustrate structure-function relationships, icons are simpler and more consistent within and between chapters, and micrographs have been refreshed and updated with newer, clearer, or better images. As a new feature, each chapter now contains intriguing open-ended questions highlighting "What We Don’t Know," introducing students to challenging areas of future research. Updated end-of-chapter problems reflect new research discussed in the text. Thought-provoking end-of-chapter questions have been expanded to all chapters, including questions on developmental biology, tissues and stem cells, the immune system, and pathogens.

The Problems Book helps students appreciate the ways in which experiments and simple calculations can lead to an understanding of how cells work. This is accomplished by introducing the experimental foundation of cell and molecular biology. Each chapter reviews key terms, tests for understanding basic concepts, and poses research-based problems. This book is designed to correspond with the first 20 chapters of Molecular Biology of the Cell, Sixth Edition

This text provides a readily accessible introduction to the central concepts of cell biology. And its lively, clear writing and exceptional illustrations make it the ideal text for a first course in both cell and molecular biology. Molecular detail has been kept to a minimum. This decision delivers a cohesive conceptual framework for the basic science that underlies our current understanding of all of biology―including the biomedical sciences.
