For courses in cell biology.
Connecting fundamental concepts across the world of the cell
Known for its strong biochemistry coverage and clear, easy-to-follow explanations and figures, Becker's World of the Cell provides a beautifully illustrated, up-to-date introduction to cell biology concepts, processes, and applications. Informed by years of classroom experience in the cell biology course, the text features accessible and authoritative descriptions of all major principles, as well as unique scientific insights into visualization and applications of cell and molecular biology. With the 10thEdition, the authors guide students to make connections throughout cell biology, and provide questions that encourage students to practice interpreting and analyzing data.
