Book Details Author: Robert A. Weinberg ,Robert A Weinberg Pages: Paperback Brand: Description Thoroughly updated and incorporating the most important advances in the fast-growing field of cancer biology, The Biology of Cancer, Second Edition, maintains all of its hallmark features admired by students, instructors, researchers, and clinicians around the world. The Biology of Cancer is a textbook for students studying the molecular and cellular bases of cancer at the undergraduate, graduate, and medical school levels.

The principles of cancer biology are presented in an organized, cogent, and in-depth manner. The clarity of writing, supported by an extensive full-color art program and numerous pedagogical features, makes the book accessible and engaging.

The information unfolds through the presentation of key experiments that give readers a sense of discovery and provide insights into the conceptual foundation underlying modern cancer biology. Even though cancer biologists will surely find plenty to both praise and criticize as they examine this book, I as a developmental biologist and teacher, who seeks to inspire undergraduates into the challenges of modern biology, found this book to be dazzling.

In The Biology of Cancer, Professor Weinberg presents cancer biology as a coherent scholastic discipline integrating every level of biology from the molecular structure of oncoproteins to organ pathology to population biology and epidemiology.

Clearly, the strengths of the book are in Prof.

Weinberg's area of research in cancer cell biology, but his range and depth of scholarship is evident throughout. The layout of The Biology of Cancer has important features that make this text unique.

In the Synopses and Prospects sections of each chapter, which is perhaps the most intellectually engaging feature of The Biology of Cancer, Prof. Weinberg brings together the key elements of the chapter and presents his thoughts on novel implications of the information presented and emerging challenges to investigators in the field.

I think for most readers or teachers, these sections are worth the price of admission! All of these sections are bound to excite undergraduate and graduate students into the field.

Also, this is the first textbook that I have seen that has an extensive glossary of acronyms for novices to keep track of the arcane lexicon of signaling proteins and transcription factors. Each chapter ends with a set of 4—8 interesting and occasionally challenging Thought Questions. The first nine chapters takes the reader through the basic biochemical and cellular machinery relevant to cancer biology, starting with the early observations of the viral origins of animal sarcomas to the modern impact of tumor viruses in our understanding of the epigenesis of the cancer cell and then to oncoproteins and tumor suppressors and the biochemical signaling pathways that they impact.

Weinberg finishes this section with impact of oncoproteins and tumor suppressors on the control of the cell cycle and programmed cell death. While the fundamental approach to the science in this text is reductionist, Prof.
