Earnshaw, FRSE, Professor and Wellcome Trust principal research fellow, Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell Biology, ICB, University of Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom ; with Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz, PhD, Head, Section on Orgenelle Biology, Cell Biology and Metabolism Branch, national Institute of Child Health and Human development, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland ; illustrated by Graham T. Johnson.


Emphasises that cellular structure, function, and dysfunction ultimately result from specific macromolecular interactions, using illustrations.  Read more...
