What makes a cell begin the complicated process of cell division? How does it stop? What happens when things go wrong? The use of developing technologies has revealed the extraordinary degree to which cell cycle control mechanisms have been conserved through eukaryotic evolution. This bookpresents a detailed overview of current research in cell cycle control.

Editorial Reviews

`the layout of the book is excellent ... The order of presentation is logical and well conceived with the happy result that there is previous little redundancy in the information provided. The contributions are detailed and well referenced. Illustrations are by and large, clear and unfussy.For these reasons it will be a valuable reference source in many labs and a good general introductory text to those entering the field of cell cycle research.'Steve Smerdon, National Institute for Medical Research, Heredity, 77
