This book sets out not just to define but to explain what certain words mean and what their relationship is to other terms in the same field. In this way it is hoped that those who use the dictionary frequently will as they do so expand their knowledge and understanding of the topics. The fact that the dictionary combines two areas deserves comment. Both genetics and cell biology have changed greatly in recent years. since both have been greatly affected by the explosion in molecular biology both technically and intellectually. This to my mind links them almost indissolubly. Thus although it would.be possible to have distinct volumes devoted to either topic many perhaps even most of the words defined would be common to both disciplines. It is also noticeable that many who work in specialist areas of cell biology and genetics do encounter problems in keeping abreast of the terminology used in the alternative subject area. This book should do something to help.
