The Highlighting point of this cell biology pdf book is efficient and effective information that strengthens the connection between the concept and experiment. It includes arts and new scientific illustrations which make things easier to understand & memorise the experimental part which mostly CSIR exam focuses on. The special mention point in the book is chapter no. 17 The Immune Response which has to explain in-depth (page No. 661 ) with a well-labelled, coloured, and catchy diagram.

CANCER which is considered as the Hot spot point for CSIR NET Life Science Exam, especially in Part ‘C’ has been divided into 18 distinct subpoints in the 16th chapter with all required charts, diagrams, experimental pathways, and their references. This makes this cell biology pdf book mandatory for CSIR NET studies in life science. A detailed and complete Glossary (32 pages) is an add-on thing in the book, which helps students understand scientific terminologies.

The latest edition of this cell biology textbook shows a good balance between theoretical concepts and experiments as compared to the rest of the books in cell biology pdf form. The experiments are used in the middle of the concept so that it would be easy to understand. Overall, a decent cell biology textbook with good theory and the experimental part that CSIR NET JRF Life science students refer to cell and molecular biology.
