The cell

ABOUT THIS BOOK
Recent discoveries about the cell, the focal point of modern biology, make up the central theme of this book. Since the 1940’s, biologists have achieved incredibly precise observations of the interior of cells, making possible such remarkable diagrams as the sectioned close-up on page 17 and the picture essay on the DNA molecule (pages 62 to 79).

This volume is made up of text chapters, with marginal illustrations on specific points, and picture essays. The picture essays complement the chapters they follow, sometimes by illustrating the subject in depth, sometimes by taking up supplementary subject-matter. The two components of the book were designed to make up a unified whole, but each is self-contained and can be read separately.

A glossary in the appendix defines the most, essential terms in the vocabulary of cellular biology.
