Your hands-on study guide to the inner world of the cell

Need to get a handle on molecular and cell biology? Thiseasy-to-understand guide explains the structure and function of thecell and how recombinant DNA technology is changing the face ofscience and medicine. You discover how fundamental principles andconcepts relate to everyday life. Plus, you get plenty of studytips to improve your grades and score higher on exams!
* Explore the world of the cell -- take a tour inside thestructure and function of cells and see how viruses attack anddestroy them
* Understand the stuff of life (molecules) -- get up to speedon the structure of atoms, types of bonds, carbohydrates, proteins,DNA, RNA, and lipids
* Watch as cells function and reproduce -- see how cellscommunicate, obtain matter and energy, and copy themselves forgrowth, repair, and reproduction
* Make sense of genetics -- learn how parental cells organizetheir DNA during sexual reproduction and how scientists can predictinheritance patterns
* Decode a cell's underlying programming -- examine how DNA isread by cells, how it determines the traits of organisms, and howit's regulated by the cell
* Harness the power of DNA -- discover how scientists usemolecular biology to explore genomes and solve current worldproblems
