Mitosis : Molecules and Mechanisms
Mitosis is one of the most fundamental processes in living cells, being common to all eukaryotes, from the simplest plants to the most complex mammals. Its understanding is relevant to virtually every area of biology, ranging from the molecular sciences of cell biology, developmental biology, and genetics to taxonomy and evolutionary studies. Written and compiled by leading authorities, this book reviews the state of mitosis research, discussing cytological, ultrastructural, physical, genetic, and biochemical approaches, and focusing on areas of study that are currently under the most intensive investigation.

"Mitosis will certainly be essential reading... for those looking for challenging problems or who wish to be impressed by the sheer experimental inventiveness of successive generations of cell biologists." --NATURE "In this rapidly moving field, the book is well referenced and remarkably up-to-date... I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who wished to get a closer understanding of mitosis; the comprehensive nature of this book will be a useful source of information for the newcomer into the field as well as for the specialist." --CGU TISSUE KINET.
