Lipid biochemistry. Cell biologists have the challenging task of merging reductionist experimental science with a systems approach to understanding cellular processes that cannot otherwise be understood. In the minds of many traditional biochemists and molecular biologists, cell biology is still considered a purely descriptive science.

Yet, cell biologists have approached important problems in cell biology in a much more quantitative manner than their molecular biology colleagues.

Cell motility and mitosis cannot be appreciated as an algorithm of interacting proteins. These processes can only be understood by the quantitative features of polymer assembly-disassembly and binding interactions with other cellular structures. Ironically, the microscope, regarded largely as a descriptive tool, has been a key resource in developing this new quantitative approach to cell biology. Indeed, cell biology remains a wonderfully visual science, as anyone who has looked in its leading journals in the last decade or so will know.

While genomics and proteomics dominate the headlines, cell biology has quietly emerged as perhaps the avant garde subcellular biology in the last decade. None of the cell biology textbooks discussed below really convey the bold new direction in which cell biology has embarked.

These larger texts also come with more ancillary materials, especially Molecular Biology of the Cell. Molecular Cell Biology, in its fourth edition, at pages is nearly pages shorter than its predecessor. Molecular Cell Biology stands out as a text directed for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. In contrast, the other texts can easily serve as introductory texts for a much broader range of undergraduates.

So, which text does one use to teach cell biology?

This depends on how one intends to use a textbook. Hence, if one relies on the text to serve as a major teaching tool in developing understanding, then the texts by Becker et al. Of these two texts, Molecular Biology of the Cell Alberts et al.

Often, Molecular Cell Biology reads more like a review article than a text designed for undergraduates. Both Molecular Cell Biology and Molecular Biology of the Cell use assertive statement headings; however, Molecular Biology of the Cell uses the headings to break up the text into relatively small segments. Molecular Biology of the Cell provides review references as superscripts to each subheading; whereas, Molecular Cell Biology places the citation of review references at the end of each chapter.

Citations in both books focus largely on review articles. Hence, if one relies on the text to serve as a major teaching tool in developing understanding, then the texts by Becker et al. Of these two texts, Molecular Biology of the Cell Alberts et al.

Often, Molecular Cell Biology reads more like a review article than a text designed for undergraduates. Both Molecular Cell Biology and Molecular Biology of the Cell use assertive statement headings; however, Molecular Biology of the Cell uses the headings to break up the text into relatively small segments.

Molecular Biology of the Cell provides review references as superscripts to each subheading; whereas, Molecular Cell Biology places the citation of review references at the end of each chapter. Citations in both books focus largely on review articles. One requirement of a resource text is an exhaustive index, and both texts have satisfying indices.

Many of these are quite good, and useful to students. The end of the chapter also includes more traditional review questions, as does the student companion volume discussed below.

These sections are marked by icons, and are generally quite short. I wish that these sections were a bit more elaborate, similar to what is found in the Becker, Cooper, and Karp texts, wherein key citations of the literature are included and discussed. Here, students are directed to answer important biological questions as they read a small collection of primary research papers.

To give one example, the authors ignore important work in the integration of the three major cytoskeletal systems in generating and maintaining cell structure, force-generation, and cell signaling in the appropriate chapters. This emerging synthesis is already generating bold new perspectives into the nature of cell signaling, cell movement, and metabolic regulation.

In any case, I expected a bolder, far-reaching approach from such prominent scientists.

Molecular Cell Biology has several key ancillary materials. The CD-ROM is nice and has a unique feature in the presentation of classic experiments; unfortunately, only eleven are presented. I think more robust animations of processes such as the formation of transcriptional initiation complexes, cell signaling, and cytoskeletal dynamics are now possible and should be what one encounters in these supplements. Further, I think it is time to see more interactive self-testing and problem solving in these supplements.

They are nicely done and informative; however, they are hardly what I would call a genuine tutorial, in the sense that the students are guided through a set of exercises to develop a concept. The inclusion of even more electronic versions of key and classic papers would make this CD-ROM an invaluable resource to students and instructors, provided copyright issues can be handled economically.

The web-based resource for Molecular Cell Biology by Michael Klymkowsky is an excellent resource for students and instructors. With computer hook-ups in the classroom, an instructor can take full advantage of the numerous animations and videos to highlight a lecture.

Many cell biology instructors teach cell biology as an experimental science, meaning that there is a central focus on the presentation and interpretation of experiments. The study of " mutants " — organisms which lack one or more functional components with respect to the so-called " wild type " or normal phenotype.

Genetic interactions epistasis can often confound simple interpretations of such " knockout " studies. It studies the structure, function, processing, regulation, interactions and evolution of biomolecules. Its most famous subfield, molecular genetics , studies the processes of replication , transcription , translation , and genetic mechanisms of cell function. The central dogma of molecular biology where genetic material is transcribed into RNA and then translated into protein , despite being oversimplified, still provides a good starting point for understanding the field.

The picture has been revised in light of emerging novel roles for RNA. In the early s, the study of gene structure and function, molecular genetics , has been among the most prominent sub-fields of molecular biology.

Increasingly many other areas of biology focus on molecules, either directly studying interactions in their own right such as in cell biology and developmental biology , or indirectly, where molecular techniques are used to infer historical attributes of populations or species , as in fields in evolutionary biology such as population genetics and phylogenetics.

There is also a long tradition of studying biomolecules "from the ground up" in biophysics.Customers who bought related items also bought. Principles of ControlIs part of a series of books constructed on a modular principle that is intended to make them easy to teach from, to learn from, and to use for reference, without sacrificing the synthesis that is essential for any text that is to be truly instructive.
