5-0 out of 5 stars hands down, this behemoth deserves 5 stars
Yes, 1616 pages and 2 inches thick of madness can be intimidating, but this book is sheer awesomeness in lots of ways. Whether you are self-taught, actually taking the class, or just want a desk reference for cell bio, this is definitely the one to get.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Canonical Work
This is a beautifully written textbook that presents the canonical version of what is currently known about cellular biology at the molecular level.The illustrations are clear and the text is easy to follow.The only shortcoming of the book is that, necessarily, it stays above the messy details in order to maintain clarity.The result, inevitably, is that some areas are glossed over (transcription activation is one example, but there are many others) and some areas appear to be understood when in reality there is a great deal of disagreement (for example, gene splicing).But these omissions are appropriate because the intention of the book is to provide an overview, not a specialist in-depth examination of every topic.This is a great primer for college students or educated people wanting to know just a little more detail about how life works.
5-0 out of 5 stars Simply love it---a plethora of information
This book is a wonderful source of knowledge for anyone who is interested in cell biology; or if you are studying it--like myself.I give a 100% gaurantee that if you purchase this book you will be satisfied. I just finished reading the chapter on pathogens; wow so much information - it's truly ubelievable. That is what else I love about this book: it can be read sectionally. All one has to do is read the first three chapters to establish a foundation of the basic knowledge; you can skip that step all together if you know your stuff. Simply put: buy this book. Also, I forgot to mention that it includes a beautifully designed CD-ROM; it has animations that suppliment what you learned and more--not your average CD extra. The reason this review is so short and concise is because the other one I wrote didn't get saved--that was the long one with detail. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Fine book, for whatever it matters
The book is decent. To be honest though, reviewing textbooks is kind of funny. Does it matter what I say? I suppose if you're ordering this book because you honestly just have a burning desire to learn about essential cell biology, well... the more power to you. You'll learn it just fine from this book. If you're just buying the book because it's the required text for your college class (like I expect), well yeah, doesn't really matter what I say, does it?

5-0 out of 5 stars Essentials grounded!!
I feel this is a very good textbook for molecular biology rookies as well as for pros wanting to revive their concepts ... Molecular Biology of the Cell could serve as an excellent companion book or rather reference book for this textbook ... the cd provided along with theEssential Cell Biology book is a great tool to understand the way things work ... in short, it is a must book for mol bio students to know what they are doing and to do things better:) It could also serve as a great book for biomedical engineers to grasp more of biology and engineer the concepts better. The book is definitely more simplified (kinda an abridged version) and easier to understand than "Molecular Biology of the Cell". Although, the size of the latter makes it look more formidable for beginners, I must add it is indeed a great reference book for researchers!

This book is in very good shape. It is a paper back version but the contents are exactly the same as a hardback version. The pages and chapters are the same. The cover of the book has slightly curled edges due to it being used. Other than that, the book is in good condition.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book!!
This is one of the most complete and easy-to-read book ever! I have studied with Gerald Karp books since I was an undergraduate student (Biochemistry, and Karp book was always by my side, very useful). This book explain the cellular metabolism, structures (cytoskeleton, microtubules, filaments,genes,relations between genes and proteins, DNA repair, cell cycle, cell signalling, lot of concepts that are not easy to understand at first, Karp does it very simple. You will love this book. I can strongly recommend it. Another excellent book I can recommend is Molecular Biology of the CELL by Bruce Alberts....is excellent! and before you take an exam, I will suggest the "Outline of Molecular and Cell Biology" by the Schaum's series. Well, that's it for now, I wish you the best in your career (I have been there, I know how hard it can be and choose the proper books!) and always remember, keep working and practicing, because practice make the Master!! :)
4-0 out of 5 stars Great job
The book was in great condition.Seller let me know that the book was in the mail which was nice.

3-0 out of 5 stars Concise story of cell biology
Another introductory book in the biology of the cell. I would say that the book is divided into mainly two sections, Cell structure and DANA, DANA replications etc. Second part takes almost two thirds of the book. I would prefer to read other Gene books when it comes to that point but for the cell structure, it is not bad. Some colored pictures, computer animations makes it easy to visualize things. Sections called "experimental pathways" scattered throughout the text takes you into current issues related to the subject. They are also quite sophisticated issues rather than practical problems. I think this book requires considerable guidance when read alone. I could not call this book as self sufficient or easy to read one compared to books by Alberts or Baltimore. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview of cancer biology
This book provides a comprehensive overview of cancer biology. Excellent as introductory text for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate student. Written by a lasker award winner and one of the pioneers of the molecular biological study of cancer. The accompanying CD has intersting supplimentary material especially the videos that add to the utility of the book. The accompanying poster lists the most common interconnected pathways in cancer. Highly readable and uptodate. Highly recommended for purchase.

5-0 out of 5 stars The State of the Art as it is Known Today.
This textbook, aimed at the advanced undergraduate and graduate biology and medical students covers the basic biology of cancer at the molecular andcellular level. Research into cancer in many different directions has been continuing at an accelerated pace since about World War II. In 1975 a major breakthrough was made by H.E. Varmus and J.M. Bishop on San Francisco. The result has been the creation of the new branch of biology covered by this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best
This text is a vast improvement on the previous editions. Its improved vastly on both clarity and content. The figures themselves are excellent learning tools. Combined with uptodate material, it is in my opinion peerless. Its rivals would be lodish and alberts but in some areas complements them and often outshines them. The textbook exists online at ergito.com and you could subcribe for the duration of your course. The website gives you access to the complete material in the print text and you also save a ton of money by subscribing for a shorter period, that is if you find cash an issue. However, I wholeheartedly recommend the print edition as a trusted companion for those embarking on graduate studies.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great book on biology
Dr. Lewin's work has helped me understand biology and improve my understanding of the sciences. The design and figures in Genes are wonderfully clear, as is the general body of the text.

5-0 out of 5 stars Am Studying for the Biochemistry GRE - This book is golden
I got this book to assist for my prep for the Biochemistry GRE - I know a lot about Biology.So this is a great Book - First, It is very readable - I was surprised I was not able to put it down and knocked off 100 pages in record time.Besided that - it is enjoyable and not dull and boring - Second, The great experiments are given and insight into the science reasoning behind them also. This book makes the discover of genetics, DNA, RNA and protein building come alive. Third, this book is very current with research and cites the papers and journals where the important biology, Genetic, molecular & cell biology was published.That alone would save you the time to research and site these for your own research.Lastly, the pictures and recollections of the experimenters and "who knew who" are a total hoot.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
This book is an awesome teaching guide but the real prize goes to the CD and animations. Where a subject might be a bit hazy in the text, the flash animations on the CD are clear and concise.

This book is an essential tool for people in the scientific field such as Molecular Biology (obviously), Biochemistry, and Neuroscience. It is comprehensive and up-to-date as far as the techniques are concerned. It isgood value in a sense that you don't have to buy the whole "CurrentProtocols Series" which costs an arm and a leg if you do. Althoughnowadays, a lot of "kits" are commercially available, thetechniques found in this book explain principles and provide differentalternatives suited for your needs. Molecular Cloning by Maniatis et al.,although needs updating, is still a helpful reference in my opinion and itcomplements this book. ... Read more

I'm sure this book was great in the 90s, but this is the 21st century, when you can buy the fourth edition.There has been a ton of advancement between 1994 and 2002.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a GREAT textbook
This book made studying and preparing for tests easy and enjoyable. Highly recommended, especially for those who are going to take the GRE Subject test. At later stages of your career, textbooks even the greatest ones will be largely irrelevant, as you will have to search for up-to-date articles and reviews.

4-0 out of 5 stars A perfect introduction to the subject
I will say that I had no trouble in reading and understanding this book. All subjects are nicely elaborated and picturized with detailed schematics or with electron microscopy pictures. Scanning electron pictures are the best but very minimal.All basic concepts are covered structure of cell, protein synthesis, DANA , cell structures,nerve cells, atp, etc. You may want to skip better books when it comes to biochemistry or developmental biology but this book gives smooth introduction all subjects and than you make your direction. Compared to book written by Karp, I prefer this one for wider coverage but Karp has some sections called "experimental pathways" that open your vision to latest developments. ... Read more

after being utterly discusted with this poor excuse of a study guide, i thought i would read some horrible reviews on the guide to make me feel better. to my dismay, people can't read and they only posted reviews for the text book, which is actually good but those reviews should be posted elsewhere.

The Alberts text (Molecular Biology of the Cell, Fourth Edition) is superior to this text in every way. It is clearer, more precise, and contains more information. This one manages to make simple concepts become quite difficult.

Excellent.Hands down the best book out there for cell biology.Gives a thorough look at the exciting unraveling of the cell.Figures are exceptional.However, being now ~3 years old and due to the intense output and growth of scientific literature this book is starting to get outdated.There have been several advances in a number of transport systems (i.e. Nuclear transport and regulation of gene expression).A new edition in the next year or so would hopefully address these issues. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Not the best genetics book out there
This book is ok, but you need a decent understanding of genetics to follow many of the chapters. The authors are very effective at overcomplicating very straight forward concepts, which is frustrating if you're simply trying to review, and even worse if you're trying to learn the info for the first time. Definitely NOT for the genetics beginner. I think you can get a better genetics book for the money.
5-0 out of 5 stars Get up to speed fast by reading this book
Though I have been interested in molecular genetics for decades, I have been out-of-touch with the excitement in genetics that is percolating out of the huge amount of data coming from various genome sequencing projects.Want to know why there is so much excitement?Then I suggest you read this book.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best and most comprehensive books available on the subject
This book offers an up-to-date view of molecular genetics and the functional laboratroy tools and theories used to address various inherited disorders. The language is very approachable and the book is wonderfully cross-referenced. New developments in various computational fields are addressed and key websites are given for data analysis so that the interested reader can familiarize himself with these tools. I found this book very helpful for both an introduction and subsequent in depth analysis of various topics. The referenced articles are seminal papers and are a wonderful addition to yoour library. Highly recommended and essential for beginners in health professions, graduate students, and biomedical researchers. ... Read more

I've used this book now in 2 classes (including one taught by an author of one of the chapters) and have both times found the book hard to use.It is full of so many small errors you can never be sure whether the problems you are having are because you don't understand the material, or if there is another mistake in that section.Very frustrating.The problems are not limited to explicit errors either, there are issues with the presentation that makes me think it was poorly edited as well.Style, order, and omission of important points are among the sins.Some sections are pretty good, though.1-0 out of 5 stars review of biomedical engineering handbook

This is by far the best written and illustrated book for pathways I have ever seen.If I was teaching a course, it would be absolutely required.

2-0 out of 5 stars "Bichemical Pathways"...Great content, Poor Presentation
Comprehensive references of bochemical pathways are not common, especially with well described cofactors, modulators, and interactions with disparate pathways.This book could provide such a useful reference, unfortunately,the quality of the layout is so poor as to make it very difficult to read. Poor graphic quality, exceptionally small fonts, and poor color choicesrender what should be a most useful reference into a visually challengingdocument.At the price, the book is a disappointment, although the contentis great. Onewishes that the editors would rerelease it after completelyrevising the graphics and production quality, as the content is indeed veryuseful.

The book "Biochemical Pathways..." is the book of choice if you quickly need information on a particular biochemical reaction, substrate or enzyme and serves well as an excellent reference guide. It is acomprehensive book version of the well-known Boehringer Mannheim wallchart"Biochemical Pathways" that can surely be found in almost everylaboratory on the world.

I used this book to teach a bioinformatics course in a foreign language because it was only one of two available in both english and chinese.I'm not sure it wouldn't have been less confusing to simply use a english textbook and let the students translate the text for themselves.To give the author credit, he has compiled an enormous quantity of information and made it available in a single location and that is no mean feat.At the very least, it is a valuable starting point to find both useful references to better explanations and software appropriate to almost any analysis you might want to do.On the downside, the prose is a tangled mess and is beyond comprehension in places.there are points where, even though i understand the underlying theories used throughout the book, i still couldn't figure out some of the examples used to illustrate particular methods.For example, there are some figures which have captions which run for a page and a half.Finally, in the majority of cases, the figures are taken directly from key papers on each topic, and associated explanations consist of sentences copied verbatim from the text. I may be doing the author a gross injustice here, but in many of the explanations, i was left with the same impression i get when reading students papers when they have copied something out of a textbook, without really understanding what is going on.Having said all of the above, i would still recommend taking a look at this book, but be ready to access the excellent list of references if you want a more insightful understanding of many of the methods described throughout.

2-0 out of 5 stars Leaves something to be desired
I took Dr. Mount's class at the U. or Arizona, and he's a really smart guy, but the man can't explain anything. It's not just his book either; his lectures are just as cryptic. I went to class thinking I understood the concepts, but then I got totally confused when he lectured. I would try to clarify things with the book, and again, I'd get even more confused. Someone who reviewed this book earlier said that he tends to use 10 words where he should use 1; I couldn't agree more. The figures in this book also need a major overhaul, and he should definitely include more examples of the many complex concepts he talks about. While I have no doubt that there is plenty of useful information in there, getting anything out of it is a chore. I would only recommend this book to someone who already had a strong knowledge of bioinformatics concepts.

Book is a good reference textbook for Bioinformatics.Of course the material covered is technical and dense, but that is unavoidable for the subject matter that the book covers. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great companion to the Cell book...
I use the problems approach book in my doctoral studies, and it has been great.I recommend this book if your exams from the Cell book are more problems and less memorization of mechanisms.The biochemical problems are varied and the answers in the back are simple to understand.This book get's 4 stars because the even-numbered problems's answers are not available to you.Our class does not use the problems approach book, and it is never mentioned that you will not get all the answers... I feel like I got half of money's worth.Still a good investment though.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best book you'll find on this subject
I'm currently a medical student and I have used this book for for over 4 years (since college). While I could write a lengthy review to sing its praises, its simpler for me to put it as follows. I have churned through dozens of textbooks and this one is by far the very best I have ever seen.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very in-depth explanations
I bought this book not because I have any interest in computational biology but because at that time I had an interest in (and professional need for) extremely fast and efficient ways to search through massive data stores.In this I was not disappointed, having found thorough treatments of how to do exact pattern matching as well as various types of "closest" match searching though very large data sets in minimal time.
4-0 out of 5 stars nice intersection of computing and biology
The text sits at the intersection of computer science and computational biology. It centres around the observation made by the author and others that often in CS, one has to manipulate strings of text, which are just sequences of text. While in computational biology, a recurrent theme is how to deal with sequences of molecules. These might be in a DNA sample or in a protein.
5-0 out of 5 stars What it says, it says best.
If you haven't read this book, you don't know biological string matching. The book's focus is clearly on string algorithms, but the author gives good biological significance to the problems that each technique solves. I came away from this book understanding the algorithms, but also knowing why the algorithms were valuable.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent introductory text on Proteins
This is a great introductory text on protein science. It starts off with the basic chemistry of amino acids and polypeptides and goes from there into higher order structural organization of many proteins of many families. Reading this book allows one to think about protein function being a direct result of what the structure imposes. Although this is not a protein chemistry book, it's a great place to start appreciating how proteins do what they do following some elegant design principles.
5-0 out of 5 stars Basics of Protein Structure - Great for revision!
I used this book a lot for one of my undergraduate courses three years back.It's excellent at explaining the fundamentals of protein structure, it's written very clearly and the diagrams are easy to understand and appropriate.I found it particularly useful when studying immunology, the explanation of immunoglobulin structure, splicing, and mechanism of action was better than some of the other textbooks I used from the library.I finally bought a copy as reference and to aid revision of some basics while applying for research associate positions within the biochemistry field.

5-0 out of 5 stars Indispensible for those interested to learn the essentials of protein structure
This book is one of the best books that addresses the topic of protein structure.The book answers nearly all the questions that anybody interested to know about protein structure.Meanwhile, the authers provided clear examples about how elucidating a protein structure can hint for its function(example, B-lactoglobulin structure similarity to retinol binding proteins hints for its function as retinol binding protein in the mammals intestine).Besides, the organization of the book chapters made it so easy to read. Above all, the versatile illustrative examples and figures that the authers usedmake reading this book is really enjoyable for people have the basic background in biochemistry or those who are interested to building skills in biochemistry as well.The chapeters describing prediction of protein structure and methods to determine the protein structrue are really so valuable as a basic introduction about these broad topics.With basic biochemistry skills, this book will be so enjoyable. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Save on Textbook
I purchased this book with a description of like new.I would say this is new.The previous person who used this did not even break in the binder.This is an excellent reference book,I have enjoyed reading the text up to this point.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Basic Book on Tisssue Culture
For many years Freshney's Culture of Animal Cells has been the gold standard of tissue culture reference books.This new edition adds and updates many techniques and continues to be the best book in its area.I use it extensively both for my own research and in teaching classes on tissue culture.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best book on cell culture
Freshney's Culture of Animal Cells is a great book. It is writen on an easy style, it is concise and complete at the same time and it does teach you all the basics (and a little bit more) of cell culture. When I was doing my masters I didn't have a lot of help with my cell culture experiments and this book was fundamental for my research. The book covers everything, starting from the biology of cultured cells, equipments, design of the lab and asseptic technique and going all the way to primary culture, cloning and selection, cell separation, characterization, differentiation and more. The book (hard cover) is pretty resistant and it easily stands going to the bench (where you surely will be using it a lot). If you are thinking about spending money on a book about cell culture techniques this is the book! Don't think twice. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best for a nutrionist-chemist-chef- anyone involved in cooking
Excelent book. Written in short (2 pages at most) concrete ideas of the subject but very ilustrative. The writer shows expertise and real practical knowledge of the topics described. A second volumen should be written by the same author. Anyone interested in cooking, after reading this book will be capable of deciphering the why, what and how to cooking...

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
I purchased this book to shed some light on some food preparation and storage beliefs and perhaps better understand why some things work together and why others don't.Since the author was a chemist, I was expecting a clearly stated hypothesis and conclusion in each chapter.Instead, each chapter read like a movie review.(Where at the end, you still don't know if the movie was good or bad).It was deep on explanations, but short on clear conclusions to the hypothesis proposed.I am well educated with a technical background, and still found the reading a little challenging.

5-0 out of 5 stars Scientific Fun
The author takes the reader deep into the molecular level of cooking and the principle behind the process. If you ever wanted to know why butter response to heat like it does from room temp to cooking with it -this book is for you. Learned new information on the cooking and the effects on foods. ...
