A Top 25 CHOICE 2016 Title, and recipient of the CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title (OAT) Award.

How much energy is released in ATP hydrolysis? How many mRNAs are in a cell? How genetically similar are two random people? What is faster, transcription or translation?

Cell Biology by the Numbers explores these questions―and dozens of others―providing a richly illustrated and handy reference for students and researchers in molecular and cell biology, chemistry, and biophysics.

The book features question-driven vignettes and "back of the envelope" calculations that investigate some of the key numbers in cell biology. Readers will learn about the sizes, concentrations, rates, energies, and other numbers that describe and drive the living world.

Review:

"This unique book is all about numerical thinking in (cell) biology. In about 100 vignettes, each a few pages long, the authors address all kinds of questions from a quantitative perspective.Overall, this is an interesting and highly useful volume, which should sit on the shelf of anyone working in cell biology and related fields, as well as anyone who is just curious about (cell) biology from a quantitative perspective."
Andreas Handel, Epidemiology & Biostatistics,University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia, Volume 92, Number 4 (December 2017) of The Quarterly Review of Biology
