Cells: Molecules and Mechanisms

Cells: Molecules and Mechanisms

Cells: Molecules and Mechanisms is a CC-licensed, open access textbook that can be effectively used as a resource in both introductory (underclassmen) and more advanced (upperclassmen) college cell and molecular biology courses. This book was written and designed for the student learning process, and is not designed to be an encyclopedic text. Rather, it is designed and written to communicate major themes as clearly as possible while providing enough advanced detail to serve as a springboard for higher-level students to delve into primary literature. This text is available in its entirety or in individual chapters as PDF files.
