Molecular Biology of the Cell 6thEdition by Bruce Alberts eBook PDF EPUB
“Throughout the book, emphasis is placed not just on what ‘we know’ but also on ‘how we know’ and ‘what remains to be discovered’- important for engaging and enthusing students….A quarter of a century after the first edition revolutionised cell biology textbooks, the new edition is as fresh, comprehensive and above all, as readable as ever….Like its predecessors, this is a superb textbook for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students.”
-British Society for Developmental Biology Newsletter, Summer 2008, Vol. 29, No. 1
“Professors, lecturers, and instructors will find the fifth edition of the book Molecular Biology of the Cell and its accompanying Problems Book to be an excellent choice for guiding their students through the maze of the cell’s molecular structures and biochemical processes….With countless colorful illustrations and a large number of photographs and tables, reading the text becomes not only an educational experience, but also a highly enjoyable one for those students who wish to discover the inner workings of the magnificent cellular machine….Educators will also find the DVD-ROM to be a rich electronic resource when compiling their lectures….No less important is the Problems Book, which contains numerous exercises and questions that are an integral part of the learning process, and that teachers, instructors, and students are sure to appreciate.”
