Molecular Biology of the Cell Study Group: Chapters 2 & 3

Join us as we go through Albert’s Molecular Biology of the Cell textbook.

Inspired by the BioCurious study group for the same, we're going to be working through the book, working together to improve our knowledge of biology!

Every month, we read one chapter and discuss it at the meetup.  This month, we're reading chapter 3, and answering the questions at the end of chapter 2.

The table of contents for the 4th and 5th edition are almost identical, so we don't anticipate big problems if people have different versions. That said, Biology has come a long ways since 2002 (when the 4th edition was published). Of course, it may be interesting for us to contrast the two books.

One useful thing to note is that the 4th edition is available for search on the NIH website by agreement with the publisher:http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK21054/ . The agreement does not include browsing, so you can only read the sections that come up in a given search.
