Cell Structure and Function

The Cell Structure and Function Interactive E-book* explores how cells, the basic building blocks of all organisms, function as systems of organelles and associated structures in a dynamic equilibrium between their internal and external environments. The focus is on topics related to the structure of various types of cells, the molecular workings inside the cell, and the role of proteins as the main structural and functional molecules.
