Commentaire de Principles of cell and molecular biology (2° ed )

  • A balanced treatment of both classical cell biology and modern molecular biology issues.
  • With historical and experimental approaches to explain the evolution of models and ideas, it provides actual data for each concept.
  • Fundamental principles that guide cellular organization and function enable students to develop an understanding of concept development. The text supports these principles by providing the crucial scientific evidence that led to the formulation of these central concepts.
