The Cell, Seventh Edition provides a balance of concepts and details that meets the needs of today's students and their teachers. Written by an active scientist and experienced educator, this textbook combines readability and cohesiveness with comprehensive and up-to-date science. In keeping with prior editions, the new Seventh Edition: Is ideally suited in length and complexity for sophomore- and junior-level courses at the undergraduate level. Can be covered in a single semester. Students can master the material in its entirety, rather than sampling a small fraction from a much larger text. Is written in an efficient and compact style, covering a broad range of material in a direct and pedagogically approachable manner. Focuses on the molecular biology of cells as a unifying theme, with topics such as developmental biology, the nervous system, the immune system, and plant biology being discussed as examples of more general principles. Features 'Key Experiment' and 'Molecular Medicine' boxes that highlight the experimental nature of molecular and cellular biology and convey the excitement and medical relevance of research in this area.

Geoffrey M. Cooper is Professor of Biology and Associate Dean of the Faculty for Natural Sciences at Boston University. Receiving a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Miami in 1973, he pursued postdoctoral work with Howard Temin at the University of Wisconsin, where he developed gene transfer assays to characterize the proviral DNAs of Rous sarcoma virus and related retroviruses. He then joined the faculty of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School in 1975, extending these studies to the identification of oncogenes in human tumors. Since moving to Boston University as Chair of Biology in 1998, Dr. Cooper has used The Cell in teaching undergraduate cell biology, as well as continuing his research and participating in a major expansion of the life sciences there. Dr. Cooper's research is focused on understanding the roles of oncogene proteins in the signaling pathways that regulate cell proliferation and programmed cell death. He has authored two textbooks on cancer and published over 100 research papers in the field of cell signaling and cancer research.
