Summary:
An introduction to the cell biology offering modern and unique approach to the study of cell biology. It emphasizes that cellular structure, function, and dysfunction ultimately result from specific macromolecular interactions. Progressing from an explanation of the "hardware" of molecules and cells to an understanding of how these structures function in the organism in both healthy and diseased states, essential  Read more...
