An Editorial Board composed of renowned experts from all over the world – Nobel laureates, including the 2007 Nobel Prize winner in medicine, Sir Martin Evans, Lasker Award winners and directors of prestigious institutes and university departments – guarantees the high quality and comprehensive scope of this work. All major disciplines comprising and supporting molecular cell biology and molecular medicine are covered in true Encyclopedic detail.
Each of the over 400 articles is conceived as a self-contained treatment and begins with an outline and a keyword section, including definitions. Descriptive illustrations – many in colour -, informative tables and a glossary of basic terms in each volume enable readers to understand articles without the need to consult a dictionary, textbook or other work. Numerous cross-references and a comprehensive bibliography round off every article.
