About this book


Drawing together the latest developments in our understanding of the ultrastructure and function of cell components, this concise and up-to-date text is a valuable addition to the Macmillan Molecular Biology Series. Like other books in the Series it is aimed at undergraduate students following second and third year courses in biochemistry and cell biology. Each major cell organelle is the subject of one complete chapter, which ends with self-study questions to focus the reader on central concepts and principles. There is also a useful list of review papers to prompt further reading. Throughout the book there are numerous electron micrographs and line illustrations.
