The cellular organelle identified more than 100 years ago by Camillo Golgi is the subject of a new book from CSHL Press. Edited by Graham Warren and James Rothman, The Golgi includes contributions that review current models for Golgi traffic, describe the cargo-carrying machinery, and discuss the enzymes that determine the oligosaccharide composition of the cargo. The book also provides recent insights into Golgi architecture and positioning, and the way the Golgi fragments and regenerates during cell division.

Including discussions of Golgi bypass mechanisms, the evolution and diversity of the Golgi, and the involvement of Golgi in development and human inherited diseases, The Golgi will serve as a comprehensive reference for all cell biologists interested in this intriguing organelle.
