Garland Science is a publishing group that specializes in developing textbooks in a wide range of life sciences subjects, including cell and molecular biology, immunology, protein chemistry, genetics, and bioinformatics. It is a subsidiary of the Taylor & Francis Group. It was founded in the late 1960s by Gavin Borden (1939-1991) and gained prominence through publishing the textbook Molecular Biology of the Cell (authors include Bruce Alberts & Peter Walter; James D. Watson was a previous author), which has been lauded as "the most influential cell biology textbook of its time".
Other notable textbooks also published by Garland Science are The Biology of Cancer (by Robert Weinberg), Immunobiology (authors including Charles Janeway and Kenneth Murphy), Molecular Biology of the Cell: The Problems Book (by John Wilson and Tim Hunt), Essential Cell Biology (Bruce Alberts et al.), The Immune System (Peter Parham), Molecular Driving Forces (Ken Dill & Sarina Bromberg), and Physical Biology of the Cell (Rob Phillips, Jane Kondev & Julie Theriot).
The Garland Encyclopedia of World Music (10 volumes) is now published by Routledge, another imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group.
Famous quotes containing the words science and/or garland:
“You are bothered, I suppose, by the idea that you cant possibly believe in miracles and mysteries, and therefore cant make a good wife for Hazard. You might just as well make yourself unhappy by doubting whether you would make a good wife to me because you cant believe the first axiom in Euclid. There is no science which does not begin by requiring you to believe the incredible.”
—Henry Brooks Adams (18381918)
“I was born at the age of twelve on a Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer lot.”
—Judy Garland (19221969)
