The following lists the pertinent pages in the 5th edition of your text. You need not memorize every word of the text. Use it primarily to supplement your understanding of the lectures, then as further reading to review background material or extend your knowledge beyond the course material.
Introduction. Skim Chaps. 2-3 (review of Bio 19) and Ch 8 (501-532) on molecules and Chap 9 on microscopy techniques and return to these as needed during the semester.
Cell Membrane Structure and Transport. Chaps. 10 and 11.
Cell Motility and Cytoskeleton. Chap. 16.
Junctions, Adhesion and Extracellular Matrix. Chap. 19.
Energetics: Mitochondria, Chloroplasts. Chap. 14.
Compartments, Protein Sorting and Vesicular Traffic. Chaps. 12 and 13.
Interphase Nucleus. Chaps. 4 (195-235), 5 (281-294), 6 (347-366).
Cell Cycle, Mitosis, Cytokinesis, Cancer. Chaps. 17, 20.
