Praise for Previous Editions "It fills an undoubted gap and is stunningly up to date." (Biologists)
"...a very useful reference book that every cell biologist should seriously consider purchasing and is a must for biology libraries..." (Cell Biology International Reports)
"...The editors and the authors of this excellent book...have done a so magnificent work..." (Cellular and Molecular Biology)
"The definitions are more comprehensive than one finds in most dictionaries, and should help both students and research workers in other branches of biology..." (Genetical Research)From the Back Cover:
Molecular cell biology links the molecular life sciences with the rest of biology and medicine. The vocabulary is hence diverse with subject specific terms and many from the whole range of adjoining disciplines. The two previous editions of The Dictionary of Cell Biology gathered a broad working collection of widely used terms in cell and molecular biology, together with related expressions in genetics, neurobiology, physiology, immunology and pathology.
The third edition builds on the foundations of its predecessors but in a unique manner. Preparation of this volume was influenced both by readers' comments and by usage of the Internet version of the second edition. Thus for the first time ever, this is a dictionary that reflects the demands made by users.
Over 2000 new entries bring the total to more than 7000 terms, each expertly explained and cross-referenced where necessary. The growing areas of molecular and neurobiology and the near completion of the Human Genome Project have attracted more detailed coverage. Biologists entering these territories will find this book extremely useful.
The Dictionary will serve equally as a handy reference, a companion to other reference texts, or a spelling and fact checker for students, research scientists and those engaged in ancillary activities, such as science journalists, and the curious lay reader.
"It will find a place on the bookshelves of laboratories and libraries for many years to come"
--THE TIMES HIGHER EDUCATION SUPPLEMENT
"It fills an undoubted gap and is stunningly up to date."
"All the students seemed to find the dictionary of use, and cries of 'So that's what electroporation/vimentin/Kelnow fragment is!' rang around the students concourse."
"A very useful reference book that every cell biologist should seriously consider purchasing and is a must for biology libraries."
--CELL BIOLOGY INTERNATIONAL REPORTS
"The definitions are more comprehensive than one finds in most dictionaries, and should help both students and research workers in other branches of biology."
