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

Need to get a handle on molecular and cell biology?

  • Understand the stuff of life (molecules) — get up to speed on the structure of atoms, types of bonds, carbohydrates, proteins, DNA, RNA, and lipids

  • Watch as cells function and reproduce — see how cells communicate, obtain matter and energy, and copy themselves for growth, repair, and reproduction

  • Make sense of genetics — learn how parental cells organize their DNA during sexual reproduction and how scientists can predict inheritance patterns

  • Decode a cell's underlying programming — examine how DNA is read by cells, how it determines the traits of organisms, and how it's regulated by the cell

  • Harness the power of DNA — discover how scientists use molecular biology to explore genomes and solve current world problems

Open the book and find:

  • Easy-to-follow explanations of key topics
  • The life of a cell — what it needs to survive and reproduce

  • Why molecules are so vital to cells

  • Rules that govern cell behavior

  • Laws of thermodynamics and cellular work
