For sophomore/junior-level courses in cell biology offered out of molecular and/or cell biology departments.
Cell and Molecular Biology gives students the tools they need to understand the science behind cell biology. Karp explores core concepts in considerable depth, and presents experimental detail when it helps to explain and reinforce the concept being explained. This fifth edition continues to offer an exceedingly clear presentation and excellent art program, both of which have received high praise in prior editions.

Focusing on concepts rather than experimental analysis this excellent textbook uses human examples to make the material more accessible and relevant to students. Provides selected sample experiments which introduce students early on to the scientific method and process of science. Experiments are referenced and described throughout to support concepts being explained by offering historical background. Every chapter contains a section that highlights information gained from cell research and how it affects human lives. Four-color illustrations are designed to be self-contained learning elements.About the Author:
Gerald C. Karp received a bachelor’s degree from UCLA and a Ph.D. from the University of Washington. He conducted postdoctoral research at the University of Colorado Medical Center before joining the faculty at the University of Florida. Gerry is the author of numerous research articles on the cell and molecular biology of early development. His interests have included the synthesis of RNA in early embryos, the movement of mesenchyme cells during gas- trulation, and cell determination in slime molds. For 13 years, he taught courses in molecular, cellular, and developmental biology at the University of Florida. During this period, Gerry coauthored a text in developmental biology with N. John Berrill and authored a text in cell and molecular biology. Finding it impossible to carry on life as both full-time professor and author, Gerry gave up his faculty position to concentrate on writing. He hopes to revise this text every three years.
