Cell biology concentrates on the macromolecules and reactions studied by biochemists, the processes described by cell biologists, and the gene control pathways identified by molecular biologists and geneticists. In this millennium, two gathering forces will reshape cell biology genomics, the complete DNA sequence of many organisms, and proteomics, a knowledge of all the possible shapes and functions that proteins employ.
All the concepts of molecular cell biology continue to be derived from-experiments, and powerful experimental tools that allow the-study of living cells and organisms at higher levels of resolution are being developed constantly. This book address the current state of cell biology and look forward to what further exploration will uncover in the future. Written in clear and concise language, this book is enjoyable to read, and provides a clear sense of the excitement of modern biology.
