Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
This is an authoritative and comprehensive vision of molecular cell biology. Advances in our knowledge of how cells work has driven the discipline to the point where we understand the cell at new levels of complexity such as larger signalling complexes in cells, and cells interacting with other cells. To present this new view of molecular cell biology and the accompanying advances in experimental technology, the fifth edition shows exciting developments in cell birth, lineage and death expanded coverage of signalling systems within the whole cell/organism and expanded coverage of metabolism and movement of lipids. In addition, new pedagogy includes research questions by looking at real experimental data in "analysing the data" problems and "updated perspectives for the future" at the end of each chapter, which explore potential applications of future discoveries and unanswered questions that lie ahead for researchers. The media package includes a companion website with animations, videos and classic experiments covering groundbreaking molecular cell biology experiments to enhance student learning. For instructors there are PowerPoint images from the text solutions and a test bank. Other supplements include an instructor's CD-ROM containing all text images, a conversion guide from the 4th edition test, bank animations and videos, and overhead transparencies. And for students there is the "Working with Molecular Cell Biology, Fifth Edition: A Study Companion and Solutions Manual".

The diagrams are plentiful, are well drawn and must also be studied carefully since they contain information not included in the body of the text itself.
Information has obviously been updated as new versions of the book have appeared. This 4th edition has many references to publications as recent as 1999.
The animations in the accompanying CD are sometimes useful. A good example is the animation in chapter 22 of cell-cell adhesion in leukocyte extravasation.
1- Extensive coverage of most major topics in cell biology.
2- Impressive level of detail, down to the function of the secondary structures in proteins.
3- Very interesting explanations about how things were discovered.
4- Each chapter section is divided into points. The authors show you how every point was proved. For example, to tell you vesicles need this protein to bind to other membranes, they tell you that some biologist created mutants that were lacking this protein and noticed that the vesicles were formed but were unable to bind, and a reference is present at the end of the chapter.
5- Small summaries at the end of each section.
6- Kept really up to date. Current articles in Nature & Science magazine usually take over where this book left off.
1- There are some exercises at the end of each chapter, but they're too simple to be of any value to you except reviewing the high level concepts. There is only one "Analyzing the Data" exercise which brings some value. If you haven't memorized every single protein, you can always flip back a few pages and read off the name that you're looking for. The study guide that comes with it also doesn't have very much information. You can look at their website online but will only find multiple choice questions. The Alberts book + study guide on the other hand, does give you about 100 exercises per chapter, and that really helped me understand certain concepts.
2- The book is nearly a thousand pages long and it is presented in two-column, small font mode. I found that it took me several hours to read through a single chapter.
3- Somewhat inconsistent writing. Some chapters adopt a very narrative description that is smooth and easy to read. Other chapters just name every single protein involved and through a disordered approach expect you to put things together. Not to mention many of the proteins have the same prefix but different numbers at the end "Tom40, Tom22, Tom76". Such data would look much better tabulated.
one more caveat: my Cell Phys professor, who's a botanist, complained about the lack of coverage of plant cells, and he's right.
Thanks very much.
