Molecular Biology of the Cell is the classic in-depth text reference in cell biology. By extracting fundamental concepts and meaning from this enormous and ever-growing field, the authors tell the story of cell biology, and create a coherent framework through which non-expert readers may approach the subject. Written in clear and concise language, and illustrated with original drawings, the book is enjoyable to read, and provides a sense of the excitement of modern biology. Molecular Biology of the Cell not only sets forth the current understanding of cell biology (updated as of Fall 2001), but also explores the intriguing implications and possibilities of that which remains unknown.

The hallmark features of previous editions continue in the Fourth Edition. The book is designed with a clean and open, single-column layout. The art program maintains a completely consistent format and style, and includes over 1,600 photographs, electron micrographs, and original drawings by the authors. Clear and concise concept headings introduce each section. Every chapter contains extensive references. Most important, every chapter had been subjected to a rigorous, collaborative revision process where, in addition to incorporating comments from expert reviewers, each co-author reads and reviews the other authors' prose. The result is a truly integrated work with a single authorial voice.

Back cover In 1967, the British artist Peter Blake created
a design classic. Nearly 35 years later Nigel Orme 
(illustrator), Richard Denyer (photographer), and the 
authors have together produced an affectionate tribute 
to Mr Blake's image. With its gallery of icons and 
influences, its assembly created almost as much 
complexity, intrigue and mystery as the original. 
Drosophila, Arabidopsis, Dolly and the assembled 
company tempt you to dip inside where, as in the 
original, “a splendid time is guaranteed for all.”
