The second edition of this highly acclaimed, 16-volume encyclopedia now contains 150 new articles and extended coverage of cell biology. It is thus the most comprehensive and most detailed treatment of molecular biology, cell biology and molecular medicine available today -- designed in collaboration with a founding board of 10 Nobel laureates.

As such, the Encyclopedia provides a single-source library of the molecular basis of life, with a focus on molecular medicine, discussing in detail the latest advances of the post-genomic era.

Each of the approximately 425 articles is written as a self-contained treatment, beginning with an outline and a key word section plus definitions. Peer-reviewed, they are written in a review-like style, complemented by an extensive bipartite bibliography of reviews and books as well as primary papers. A glossary of basic terms completes each volume and defines the most commonly used terms in molecular biology. Together with the introductory illustrations found in each volume, the articles are comprehensible for readers at every level without resorting to a dictionary, textbook, or other reference.
