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 Molecylar of the CellSixth Edition accomplishes this goal with clear writing and beautiful illustrations.
The Sixth Edition has been extensively revised and updated bioloyia 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.
Updated end-of-chapter problems reflect new research discussed in the text, molrcular these problems have been expanded to all chapters by adding questions on developmental biology, tissues and stem cells, pathogens, and the immune system. 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.
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 dde who wish to discover the inner workings of the magnificent cellular machine No lbro 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.

Ver las 3 opiniones. Just a caution here that there now seem to be two Kindle editions of the book available. This latter new edition has a different ASIN and shows over 3, pages page-turns on a Kindle device, not actual pages. Beware though, as it is not going to have the beautiful layout and typesetting of the original version. It IS readable on any Kindle device not just those capable of displaying the Print Replica titlesand should allow increasing the font size to make the text more readable for those who find the full page images of the original book too small or difficult to manage.
Personally I prefer the original eTextbook edition which is an exact reproduction of the printed book. In any case, be sure you’re ordering the correct version they currently seem to share the same price and don’t be bothered by the fact that the new Kindle version shows more “pages” and has a larger file size than the original eTextbook one. For textbooks, even the most valuable like this one that I love and plan to keep for a long time, I now much prefer electronic versions for many reasons, not the least of which is that it’s easier to hold up and read a tablet than a seven pound tome.
You can also zoom in on text and figures as needed, and the illustrations are almost all in “vector” form meaning they stay sharp and detailed as you zoom in. You can also search the complete text of the book, do electronic underlining, set bookmarks, etc. Yes, the Kindle textbooks have DRM that restricts what you can do with it, but I find the Kindle restrictions less onerous than many, and in most cases they give you an option to “rent” textbooks for the duration of a class which might be as economic as buying a physical copy and then reselling it when you’re done with it.
But if you want complete freedom to resell what you buy, or maybe you just like the feeling of holding a real book in your hands, then the printed copy would probably be what you want. Note that I believe the physical version comes with a disc containing the movies and supplemental materials for the book turns out it doesn’t, see update belowbut you can also find all of this free on the Garland Science web site if you buy an e-book version.
So with that out of the way let’s talk about the book! There are basically two groups of people who are likely reading this. Either you’ve had this book assigned as the textbook for a class or you haven’t. If this has been assigned as a textbook, first make sure you’re looking at the correct edition. Also the sixth edition is brand new as of this writing, so make sure you’re not being asked to get the previous fifth edition! This is one of my favorite textbooks of all time. A really good textbook is designed to prepare students to be practitioners in a field, not just to try to keep bored students awake and hold their hands through a class they really wish they didn’t have to take.
This is a great textbook and it’s THE book to get if you want to learn as much about cell biology as is possible from one volume. It’s also now entirely fresh and up to date as ofsomething absolutely critical in a field like Biology which advances daily. Everything in here is fascinating.
Biología molecular de la célula : Alexander Johnson :
If you think this stuff is boring then I feel sorry for you: Life is cells, and this is “everything we know about how cells work” so it’s directly applicable to an understanding of every known form of life, from bacteria to you and me. Even if your class doesn’t go down into the depths and fine details, this is a great book to have for later self-study if this stuff interests you.
This can be a textbook you keep for years and refer to frequently.
This is also a surprisingly accessible work for those interested in learning about modern Biology on their own. If you’re someone who is scientifically minded and wants to understand how life works, then most of what’s in here is easily comprehensible and highly enjoyable. Unlike many fields, there aren’t years of prerequisites needed to start the study of cutting-edge Biology.
If this were Physics, you would need to have had ten years of math and boring low-level physics before you could ever hope to begin to understand things like quantum mechanics or the general theory of relativity. But there’s no math requirement for understanding Biology though it’s starting to become more quantitative and newer fields like Physical Biology are growing rapidly. A little knowledge of libor from Chemistry is helpful, but again very little of the discussion in this book is quantitative so there’s generally nothing to calculate, no equations to solve, etc.
Cell Biology is much closer to something like computer programming in terms of the mental aptitude needed to understand it. To get started I recommend reading chapter 1 thoroughly, then read chapter 2 but if your eyes start to glaze over then just skip the rest of chapter 2 for now the chemistry, while obviously fundamental and critically important is not necessary to understand deeply in order to understand the rest of the book, just as you don’t really need to understand voltages and transistors in order to learn to program a computerand then read Chapter 3 thoroughly which is alerts about how proteins perform most of the work in the cell including acting as microprocessors, motors, pumps, etc.
By that point you’ll likely be molecuoar and you can go back and appreciate the rest of chapter 2 when you’re ready for it. So how does this Sixth edition compare too the Fifth? Well, first of all it has been seven years since the previous edition, which is nearly forever in the world of Biology, so just on that basis alone delula new edition is going to be a big advance.
In general the fundamentals are the same, but the fine details of understanding have advanced a great deal. An ongoing molfcular for the authors is the incredible volume of knowledge that exists and the near infinite and subtle complexity of even the simplest cells.
This means the book could easily be three times its llbro size, a pressure which the authors must find a way to resist if the book is to remain portable and affordable.
In the fifth edition, the book exploded past its covers and the standard edition was forced to relegate the last five chapters to PDF supplements a huge Reference Edition with over pages was available with all chapters printed, and the e-book versions include all chapters.
This was not a popular decision as it meant that albers after buying bduce lugging around a big expensive tome, you still didn’t even have all the content printed. The sixth edition now includes the entire content of the book, and there’s no need for a “Reference” edition. This means however that even though the printed book has gotten slightly longer, they have had to shorten moelcular effective size by about pages!
This has resulted in a lot of editing and a reduction in the number of figures. In mllecular cases this means more effective and concise content, but in other places interesting material and in-depth discussion has been eliminated.
Taking as an example chapter 4, Control of Gene Expression, the current edition has 79 figures where the previous edition had moleuclar Also the chapter on Sexual Reproduction has been eliminated entirely you can download the fifth edition version of this chapter as cdlula PDF, see the update below though some of a,berts material has been integrated into other parts of the book.
I cannot help but wonder if the authors have really made the right decision here. I would personally have rather seen them embrace the idea that many of their readers will be using e-books where the length has no physical effect, or even consider breaking the book into two volumes as is often done in fields like the study of moleculat.
But in the end this is still intended to be a textbook, and many students will likely appreciate anything that reduces the number of pages they have to read: A lot of work has been milecular to clean up the design, and they have re-created many illustrations in a more consistent style. This edition uses a pleasant blue theme in comparison to the reddish-pink of the fifth edition. Moledular are a few places where figures include small areas of white-on-lime-green text that I have to zoom in on to read, but generally the changes are improvements.
The content in molecularr has been brought up to date with many sections extensively updated or re-written. Interestingly, as a sign that classic quantitative methods from Physics are starting to creep further into Biology, there’s an extended section in chapter 8, Mathematical Analysis of Cell Functions, which gives some mathematical ZOMG!
Anyhow, MBoC gets all the stars as being one of those magical books that takes you deep into a whole new and fascinating world, one where you’ll learn how each individual molrcular in your body has much more in common with a modern supercomputer than it does with that soggy old frog you dissected in high-school.
The practice of modern cell biology is nothing less than hacking into alien computer systems not designed by the mind of man looking for technology we can appropriate or adapt to cure disease, reduce world hunger, produce clean cheap energy, and otherwise improve our lives.
An exciting book for exciting times. I’ve now purchased a copy of the physical book as well, just because I like it so much. It’s a six pound, 13 ounce tome that’s two inches thick. It’s bruec, and has the same feel and quality as the Reference edition version of the fifth edition. Paper quality thickness, brightness are again ccelula to the fifth edition.
It’s definitely not as lap-crushing as the old Reference edition that extra pound or so makes a big difference. The physical book does NOT come with CD media for the supplemental movies and stuff, so you need to go to the Garland Science site to find them under the Student tab you can search for the movie numbers from the book without needing to create an account, or you can create an account and add the book to it to make accessing things a little easier.
Meiosis, Germ Cells, and Fertilization” in the sixth edition downloads area. This chapter got eliminated from the sixth edition the meiosis section in the Cell Cycle chapter was extended a bit to compensate so this is a useful reference to have. It should really be considered “part two” of the textbook. There’s a huge amount of additional knowledge in here and it’s great to just read, not just lobro a workbook.
Libeo check it out. The style makes the subject easy to understand while still being informative; it almost reads like a novel. Each small section makes and then illustrates a specific point. This is reiterated by clear and helpful figures. It is not a book of just facts.
The reader comes to understand what experiments and what evidence supports the current models.
