Editorial Reviews

Review

The authors have done a great job of explaining complex concepts in a very readable style. ... The illustrations are quite good as is the accompanying student website which has animations and other study tools available. The Key Experiments presented in each chapter give the reader a sense of history for the accomplishments presented, a plus for any student. I also appreciated that the authors added the clinical relevance of some discoveries in the Molecular Medicine sections. --Jill Loukides, Focus on Microbiology Education

About the Author

Geoffrey M. Cooper is Professor and Chair of the Department of Biology at Boston University. Receiving a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Miami in 1973, he pursued postdoctoral work with Howard Temin at the University of Wisconsin, where he developed gene transfer assays to characterize the proviral DNAs of Rous sarcoma virus and related retroviruses. He then joined the faculty of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School in 1975, extending these studies to the identification of oncogenes in human tumors. Since moving to Boston University in 1998, Dr. Cooper has used The Cell in teaching undergraduate cell biology, as well as continuing his research and participating in a major expansion of the life sciences there. Dr. Cooper s research is focused on understanding the roles of oncogene proteins in the signaling pathways that regulate cell proliferation and programmed cell death. He has authored two textbooks on cancer and published over 100 research papers in the field of cell signaling and cancer research. Robert E. Hausman is Professor and Graduate Director of the Department of Biology at Boston University. Receiving a Ph.D. in Biological Science from Northwestern University in 1971, he pursued postdoctoral work with Aron Moscona at the University of Chicago, where he investigated cell cell interactions during early embryonic development and characterized one of the original cell adhesion molecules. He joined the faculty of Boston University in 1978, extending his investigations of cell surface interactions to muscle development and regulation of gene expression in the developing nervous system by cell-to-cell contact. Dr. Hausman has taught undergraduate cell biology and several graduate development courses at Boston University, and Professors Cooper and Hausman currently teach cell biology together. His research is focused on understanding how interactions between cells and between cells and the extracellular matrix affect differentiation and morphogenesis.

The class I took with this book was written by the author, Dr. Geoffrey Cooper himself. Before I say anything else about the book, Dr. Cooper is a super smart guy. He discovered the ras oncogene, which you'll learn about in this book! (He is also a notable humble guy, as he doesn't even mention himself in the book, while he gives you tons of stuff on other scientists who discovered great things in cell biology, and even got Nobel prizes).

This book is a great book for an undergraduate class in cell biology. The diagrams are all well-drawn, and the book explains some complex concepts/cascades quite well. Studying the diagrams and illustrations is very very helpful when studying.

Additionally, the text is pretty comfortable to read. The text isn't crammed in together, and everything is organized pretty well (you usually don't have to turn the page to see a diagram the text refers to).

I kept this book after the class, as it is a great reference, and easy to understand. It's well-written, concise, and interesting.

Be thankful if your class uses this book. You'll not only learn about cell biology, but a lot about science in general.

GREAT FOR PRE-MED STUDENTS!

The product itself was delivered in perfect condition, brand new. I'm not a fan of the book in general though. Throughout my semester with this book my professor was constantly having to correct mistakes he found in the book. The flow of the information in book is decent, the diagrams can leave a little to be desired. I have had several textbooks that are very interesting and packed with information, this one just doesn't quite deliver. I highly recommend any faculty considering using the book for a class carefully review the book before selecting it. My professor chose it on a whim and was not impressed with the book.

Can get a little wordy but overall a great book. I used it for a molecular cell biology course and it has also prepared me for the MCAT.

Great overall coverage of general cellular biology. The text is clear and concise with enough review material to refresh the memory of basic cell theory.

Was not expecting the book to be in such great condition, almost brand new except for some highlighting. Very fair and accessible price as opposed to bookstore prices.
