Molecular Biology of the Cell celebrates 25 years of publication

Since the first edition published 25 years ago, Molecular Biology of the Cell has become the leading cell biology textbook, lauded as the most influential cell biology textbook of its time [1] . It has been read by well over one million people around the world.

The new fifth edition continues to build on its tradition of scientific authority, accuracy, and clarity. The book has been completely revised and updated to reflect our current, rapidly advancing understanding of cell biology. To list but a few examples, a large amount of new material is presented on epigenetics, stem cells, RNAi, comparative genomics, cancer therapies, apoptosis, cell cycle control and the mechanics of M phase.

The hallmark features of Molecular Biology of the Cell that have endeared themselves to generations of readers have been retained. Additionally, the authors have incorporated new features into the fifth edition in response to feedback from readers. For the first time, end-of-chapter questions have been included. Every copy of the fifth edition comes with the Media DVD-ROM which includes all of the figures in the book preloaded into PowerPoint presentations, and the Cell Biology Interactive Media Player containing over 150 moviesanimations, videos, and molecular modelsall with voice-over narration.

By skillfully extracting the fundamental concepts from this enormous and ever-growing field, the authors tell the story of cell biology, and thereby create a coherent framework through which readers may approach and enjoy this subject that is so central to all of biology.
