Your hands-on study guide to the inner world of the cell

Need to get a handle on molecular and cell biology? This easy-to-understand guide explains the structure and function of the cell and how recombinant DNA technology is changing the face of science and medicine. You discover how fundamental principles and concepts relate to everyday life. Plus, you get plenty of study tips to improve your grades and score higher on exams!

  • Explore the world of the cell — take a tour inside the structure and function of cells and see how viruses attack and destroy them
  • Understand the stuff of life (molecules) — get up to speed on the structure of atoms, types of bonds, carbohydrates, proteins, DNA, RNA, and lipids

  • Watch as cells function and reproduce — see how cells communicate, obtain matter and energy, and copy themselves for growth, repair, and reproduction

  • Make sense of genetics — learn how parental cells organize their DNA during sexual reproduction and how scientists can predict inheritance patterns

  • Decode a cell's underlying programming — examine how DNA is read by cells, how it determines the traits of organisms, and how it's regulated by the cell

  • Harness the power of DNA — discover how scientists use molecular biology to explore genomes and solve current world problems

Open the book and find:

  • Easy-to-follow explanations of key topics
  • The life of a cell — what it needs to survive and reproduce

  • Why molecules are so vital to cells

  • Rules that govern cell behavior

  • Laws of thermodynamics and cellular work

  • The principles of Mendelian genetics

  • Useful Web sites

  • Important events in the development of DNA technology

  • Ten great ways to improve your biology grade


Brings molecular and cell biology to the masses by decoding the theories of this complex field of study. This title provides a resource for readers looking for both a reference to the field as well as a course supplement.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing book 17. Februar 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I found this book just perfect. As a physicist working on interdisciplinary subjects I often had problems following the biologists' talks and hence bought this book. It changed that and in addition was fun to read. It focuses on the right things to convey the big picture quickly and leaves aside the numerous little details that finally do not matter so much.
Admittedly, it is quite short on some things. But I found it much easier to get the missing details from Wikipedia or in-depth books than to get the big picture from the common 2000-page biology bibles.

5.0 von 5 Sternen super Auffrischung von Grundwissen 30. Mai 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Hab mir das Buch gekauft, weil ich in dem Bereich arbeite und leider mit meinem Grundwissen aus dem Bio-Leistungskurs - der jetzt auch schon ein paar Jahre zurückliegt -nicht so wirklich viel anfangen konnte. Das Buch ist echt gut, aber ich muss mich echt an die Struktur halten. Mit etwas mehr Wissen kann man sicher auch Kapitel überspringen, aber das hat bei mir nicht funktioniert - ich musste wirklich bei Null anfangen.

allerdings sehr preiswert.
liebloses Layout, ein Durcheinander von Biochemie, Genetik und Molekularbiologie.
Wer Alberts gelesen hat, wird dieses Buch nur selten verwenden

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very clear explanation of a very complex subject 29. Dezember 2009
Von JSD - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book did just what I had hoped it would do. It took a very complex subject and explained it in as simple terms as possible. I've never had a formal course in biology, but I had watched all the lectures in an MIT Open Courseware course on the subject that had left me confused about a number of things. Of course, this book is not as comprehensive as a full course, but it did clarify a number of things for me. Many of the illustrations are much better than in the textbook that the MIT course was based on. Near the end of the book the author began giving specific study tips -- what things a student needs to be familiar with and what things they need to have down cold. In fact, the last chapter is entitled "Ten Ways to Improve Your Grade." I thought this a little strange, because the introduction does not mention this aspect of the book. It is done unobtrusively, so it shouldn't lessen a non-student's enjoyment of the book. I mention it because it might be a big plus to some prospective readers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Saving my 22. Juli 2011
Von Christopher T. Dahle - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm taking a graduate level environmental biology class this summer even though I knew I was a bit short on the prerequisites. I didn't try to convince anyone that the prerequisites were unnecessary, just that I was willing to do whatever was necessary to fill in the gaps. Still, it's been 20 years since I was last a student, and 30 since I'd taken a biology class, so I definitely needed help. I bought a copy of Molecular Cell Biology (Lodish, Molecular Cell Biology) to fill in the molecular biology gaps and then I bought this so I could understand Lodish.

So far the combination works quite well. I find that if read this great little book by Dr. Kratz first, I can master a chapter of Lodish in a couple of hours. Without it...well, I'd figure it out but it would take much longer.

Dr. Kratz nicely explains the basic functions of cells and their structures, then devotes a chapter to the chemistry that is especially relevant to cell biology, covalent and ionic bonding, redox reactions, pH and polymers. Subsequent chapters cover carbohydrate, protein, DNA and RNA, and lipid synthesis. Cellular communication, metabolism, respiration, and photosynthesis are nicely briefed. I have not read the remaining chapters yet, but they appear to be equally well prepared.

It certainly will not replace your molecular biology textbook, but if you are feeling a bit behind on the background knowledge you need to be successful, I think this will fill the bill. Altogether, a nicely done book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen For casual readers only 6. November 2010
Von phoeberoo - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I think this book would be great for someone with a non-science background who wanted to understand molecular and cell biology in a simple way. I however bought the book to serve as a quick-read adjunct to college level cell and molecular courses, and the book is totally inadequate for this purpose. The book is far too simplistic and surface oriented to be a study guide to undergraduate cell and molecular biology classes.

5.0 von 5 Sternen excellent introduction 9. Juli 2010
Von N. Peritore - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is written by an excellent teacher, with clear explanations. An excellent supplement to a course on this difficult topic. Most texts in this area are highly technical, and this book can help orient the reader and resolve a lot of difficulties. I would love to take the course from the author, who shows enthusiasm and and a great capacity to communicate.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book 21. Juli 2010
Von J. Carroll - Veröffentlicht auf
I have read similar books on this topic, and this one is by far the best. It explains everything very well, and makes biology seem much easier. I believe that anyone can excel in science, if they want to and try hard enough. I would highly recommend this book for students who want to improve their grades in biology.
