MOLECULAR CELL BIOLOGY 3RD ED
SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN BOOKS
This edition features new chapters on recombinant DNA technology and genetic analysis, reflecting the major role of recombinant DNA and genetic techniques in modern cell biology; a new Chapter One that defines the book’s organization and philosophy and its central dogma (that to understand cells you must understand proteins, and to understand proteins you must understand genes); a new chapter devoted solely to proteins; material on cell evolution now integrated throughout, instead of confined to a late chapter; discussions of new techniques, including electrophoretic mobility shift assays, DNA footprinting, gene replacement, and transgenic animals, and role of sex lethal gene in sex determination of fruitflies; expanded coverage of developmental genetics, particularly the regulation of genes in developmental processes (such as the bicoid gene); and a new part-opener, chapter-opener design.
