International Review of Cell and Molecular Biology presents current advances and comprehensive reviews in cell biology--both plant and animal. Articles address structure and control of gene expression, nucleocytoplasmic interactions, control of cell development and differentiation, and cell transformation and growth. Authored by some of the foremost scientists in the field Provides up-to-date information and directions for future research Valuable reference material for advanced undergraduates, graduate students and professional scientists
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 openended 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, and these problems have been expanded to all chapters by adding questions on developmental biology, tissues and stem cells, pathogens, and the immune system.
Karp continues to help biologists make important connections between key concepts and experimentation. The sixth edition explores core concepts in considerable depth and presents experimental detail when it helps to explain and reinforce the concepts. The majority of discussions have been modified to reflect the latest changes in the field. The book also builds on its strong illustration program by opening each chapter with “VIP” art that serves as a visual summary for the chapter. Over 60 new micrographs and computer-derived images have been added to enhance the material. Biologists benefit from these changes as they build their skills in making the connection.

The sixth edition provides an authoritative and comprehensive vision of molecular biology today. It presents developments in cell birth, lineage and death, expanded coverage of signaling systems and of metabolism and movement of lipids.
Principles of Cell and Molecular Biology was developed to be a readable story that is accessible and interesting for all introductory students. The authors provide a balanced treatment of both classical cell biology and modern molecular biology issues. Students are further presented with historical and experimental approaches to explain the evolution of models and ideas, and to provide actual data for each concept. By first introducing the fundamental principles that guide cellular organization and function, students develop an understanding of concept development. The text supports these principles by providing the crucial scientific evidence that led to the formulation of these central concepts. Finally, this synthesis of new and classic coverage is achieved within a size and style that is easy to read and comprehend by all students. The second edition has been revised to update all scientific content and references, and care was taken during revision to fine tune the writing style. Also new to this edition is a completely revised, full color art program, a glossary of key terms, chapter-opening "Sentence Headings" that provide an overview of the concepts to be discussed, and chapter-ending "Summary of Principal Points" sections that provide an outline of the important material covered in the chapter.
