Product Description

Review

"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."

The Quarterly Review of Biology, September 2008, Volume 83, Number 3

 

"It has been 25 years since the first edition of Molecular Biology of the Cell (MBoC) was published, which means that roughly half of today's practicing scientists do not remember life without this cell biology `bible'. The other half might recall how the book almost instantly filled a void with refreshingly clear and engaging writing illustrated with extensive diagrams and figures….MBoC has only improved over its several editions, growing with the rapid advances in the field to become an essential resource for students at all levels and a trusted first stop for researchers transitioning into unfamiliar areas of cell biology….An enduring strength of the book is that it remains a comprehensive textbook….In addition to the comprehensive updating of every chapter, another reason to consider acquiring edition five is the improved integration of the print volume with an extensive array of videos and animations in the `Cell Biology Interactive' provided on the accompanying DVD….Another welcome improvement in MBoC5 helps link the textbook to the lab - there are now problems printed at the ends of the first 20 chapters. Whereas some are designed to facilitate information retention, the best problems stimulate thought and challenge the reader to think about experimental approaches for learning new things about cell biology….the MBoC5 package is a fantastic resource and well worth the upgrade."

-Development (Company of Biologists) 135, 3973-3974 (2008)

 

"[Molecular Biology of the Cell] is a marvelous textbook. Once again, the authors are to be congratulated on a superb achievement. We are amazed at the scope and depth of information provided.”
- Bioscience Education

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Dano on Dec 3 2007
Format: Hardcover
I received the hardcover edition friday the 30th of November 2007 in the mail, and then discovered what the Reference edition of this book is.

This hardcover edition, and hence the softcover, is a STUDENT EDITION. As a consequence, the last 5 chapters are included on a DVD-ROM rather than printed within the book (accounting for the difference of about 300 pages).

You should consider this before buying this textbook. If you want then entire book in print, wait for the REFERENCE EDITION ISBN: 0815341113.

That being said, this new edition is well worth getting.

Format: Paperback
This is a paperback book. I got the paper back because I don't want to carry the book in my bag as it is large and heavy. If you're going to carry the book around I recommend the hard cover. The book is also not a complete edition and a few of the last chapters are on a DVD which was included. I am using this book in a Principles of Molecular Biology course at the University of Waterloo and it was a recommended text by my professor. I like this book, it is filled with images and is very descriptive. Very detailed and goes very deep into the topics.
