Do you wish studying science was less complicated? Perhaps you're a student struggling in biology class? Well, Cell and Molecular Biology is for you. The textbook breaks down “what we know and how we found out” in 20 chapters and is a great tool for success.
Biology doesn't have to be boring or difficult. Basic Cell and Molecular Biology will be your guide through the science of all lifeforms. The textbook gives a groundwork for everything readers need to now about biology. First, it describes cells and cell formation. Then, it builds to talk about genetics and DNA. Finally, it explains how life is created. Rather than regurgitating age-old knowledge, Basic Cell and Molecular Biology draws important relationships for the reader. For instance, an understanding of biology is essential for understanding many other types of sciences, therefore, the textbook offers a multitude of experiments and relevant examples. Each of these demonstrate how biology works and why it is crucial to know.
In addition, Basic Cell and Molecular Biology backtracks with those experiments. It traces life from its present form to its humble, single-cell origins. The book contains investigative questions and methods that will get readers thinking and engaging. It is not completely comprehensive; however, it goes into great depth so that readers can launch into other topics with confidence. Basic Cell and Molecular Biology covers many topics that string together logically, including biochemistry, protein structure, glycolysis, electron transport, genetic codes and gene expression, membrane functions, and cell motility. It also goes into the cell division and the cell cycle.
