Metabolic Events in the Regulation of Cell Reproduction
How the processes of growth and division are regulated in cells is one of the most fascinating problems of modern biology. Within the last two decades the research in this area of biology has undergone rapid change. The cell cycle is no longer regarded naively as a period of steady uniform growth between one cell division and the next. Instead, observations have led us to regard the growth and division of cells as a series of ordered chemical changes with precise temporal control mechanisms.
