The Problems Book helps students appreciate the ways in which experiments and simple calculations can lead to an understanding of how cells work. This is accomplished by introducing the experimental foundation of cell and molecular biology. Each chapter reviews key terms, tests for understanding basic concepts and poses research-based problems. This book is designed to correspond with the first 20 chapters of Molecular Biology of the Cell , Sixth Edition
A COMPREHENSIVE AND FLEXIBLE RESOURCE
This text contains more than 1,800 problems and their solutions, which align to the first 20 chapters of Molecular Biology of the Cell , Sixth Edition. The Problems Book promotes student understanding through experiments and simple calculations. Whilst it is the perfect companion for Molecular Biology of the Cell , it is also appropriate to use with Essential Cell Biology , Fourth Edition, or as a standalone resource in virtually any cell biology course.
A CONSISTENT ORGANISATION PROMOTES LEARNING
Each chapter contains a variety of question types with a range of difficulty levels, including Terms to Learn, Definitions and True/False questions to assess foundational knowledge. Thought Problems have a range of difficulty levels and are designed to make the reader think. Calculations questions deal with quantitative aspects of cell biology and research-based data handling. These are found at the end of every chapter to give students a better understanding of how biological knowledge is obtained.
PREPARATION FOR PRE-HEALTH STUDENTS
MCAT-style problems give students practice at solving the kinds of challenging biological problems found in standardised medical school entrance examinations. Additionally, the Medical Links sections contain problems of particular interest to health science students.
Tim Hunt received his PhD in biochemistry from Cambridge University, where he supervised undergraduates in cell biology for more than 20 years. He spent many summers in the late 1970s and early 1980s teaching molecular biology at the Marine Biological Laboratories in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. In 1990, he moved to a position at ICRF Clare Hall Laboratories just outside London, where he works on the control of the cell cycle. He is a Fellow of The Royal Society of London and a foreign associate of the US National Academy of Sciences. In recognition of his contribution to the discovery of key regulators of cell cycle, he was one of the recipients of the 2001 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine.
