About this eBook

Preface The cell forms the fundamental basis of all the biological sciences and life. The cell biology is the fastest growing branch of science since tremendous addition of knowledge takes place in per unit time. There is a great deal of heterogeneity in the syllabi on cell biology of different Indian universities. To fulfill the needs of students from different corners of the country, the authors had written a book on The Cell and Biotechnology in 1991 published by Agro Botanical Publishers India . Looking to the need of the students and expansion in the field of cell biology, we had planned to translate our dreams in the form of the present book. The book has been divided into six sections I to VI . Section-I deals with cell diversity and the techniques employed for unfolding the mysteries of the cell. Section II covers all the cellular organelles. Sections III and Section V include chemistry and metabolism of cell. Cell division has been included in Section IV. Section VI is a miscellaneous section covering a wide range of topics such as cell and tissue culture, cellular aging, immunity, genetic engineering and neoplasia. A list of collateral readings is added at the end of each chapter for further details. Special care has been taken to include maximum illustrations, tables and graphs explaining various aspect of cell biology. We express our thanks to our publishers Agro Botanica for helping in various ways in completing the book. Finally, we would like to apologize, in advance, for any errors that may occur in the text, and express our heartfelt embarrassment. Any comments or healthy criticism from readers waved be greatly appreciated. Authors
