The images in the book are updated with finer images. The book also includes a new feature highlighting “What We Don’t Know”. This gives the students an opportunity to understand the challenges of future research. The book is also updated with end-of-chapter problems for identifying new research. These problems are added to all chapters arising questions on developmental biology, tissues and stem cells, pathogens and immune systems.

3. “Essential Cell Biology” by Bruce Alberts and Dennis Bray
