This second edition of a text expanded and updated from Benjamin Lewin's CELLS includes the latest research findings. It contains four new chapters on bioenergetics and cellular metabolism, DNA replication and recombination, gene expression and regulation, and protein structure and function. New pedagogical features include concept and reasoning checks, boxes on cell biology methods, therapeutic applications, and discussion of historical aspects and future research directions. The text is for advanced undergraduate and graduate students taking a first course in cell biology, and covers concepts and mechanisms underlying cell structure, growth, regulation, movement, and cell interactions, with emphasis on eukaryotic cells. There is also a section on prokaryotic and plant cells, and a section focusing on cell division, apoptosis, and cancer. The art program offers color process illustrations, color micrographs, and b&w images on every page. An extensive glossary of 30 pages is included. A companion web site provides quizzes, flashcards, interactive figures, animations, and videos. Cassimeris is affiliated with Lehigh University.
