New Approaches in Cell Biology focuses on the introduction of ""new trends"" in cell biology. Divided into 14 chapters, the book contains the works of authors who have diligently conducted studies on the emergence of ""new trends"" in cell biology. The book first provides information on the process involved in the nuclear transfer of embryonic cells, and then proceeds with discussions on cellular inheritance, genetic components of lampbrush chromosomes, and the morphology of developing systems at the ultramicroscopic level. The text also notes the origin of the nucleus following mitotic cell division, including the types of chromosomal vesicle, nuclear membrane, and nucleoplasm. The discussions also focus on biochemical approaches to cell morphology; the relationship of paper chromatography with genetics and taxonomy; and the mechanisms in active transport systems. The matching of drugs to tumors, cytochemistry of proteins and nucleic acids, and the use of flying spot microscopy in research are also noted. The book is a vital source of information for readers interested in the pursuit of ""new approaches"" in cell biology.
