About this item

Milo and Phillips present this cell biology reference for students and researchers offering quantitative details on various cell components and functions. The book begins with a chapter justifying the importance of quantitative understanding, illustrating how to make rough calculations, and orienting the reader to cell geography. The information is then organized in dimension-related chapters: size and geometry of cells and cell components, concentrations and molecular numbers inside the cell, energy and force quantities of cell operations, speed and timescale of transport, molecular synthesis, and communication, and informational density, variance, and error rate in the genome, transcriptome, and proteome. Each question addressed includes an answer and explanation of the calculations used to derive or verify it. The final chapter covers some numbers that do not cleanly fit into prior chapter headings but are of particular biological or human interest.
