Description

Teaching cell biology can be a daunting task because the field is so vast and rapidly moving, characterized by a continual explosion of new information. The challenge is how to teach students the fundamental concepts without becoming bogged down in details. Students need to understand the principles of cell biology and be able to appreciate new advances, rather than just memorizing "the facts" as we see them today. At the same time, the material must be presented in sufficient depth to thoughtfully engage students and provide a sound basis for further studies. The Cell, Seventh Edition, provides a balance of concepts and details that meets the needs of today's students and their teachers. Written by an active scientist and experienced educator, this textbook combines readability and cohesiveness with comprehensive and up-to-date science.

Features

Key Features

  • Written in an efficient and compact style, covering a broad range of material in a direct and pedagogically approachable manner
  • Focuses on the molecular biology of cells as a unifying theme, with topics such as developmental biology, the nervous system, the immune system, and plant biology being discussed as examples of more general principles
  • Features "Key Experiment" and "Molecular Medicine" boxes that highlight the experimental nature of molecular and cellular biology and convey the excitement and medical relevance of research in this area


Additional Resources

For Students

The Cell Companion Website provides students with a wide range of study and review materials, rich multimedia resources, and online quizzing. The site is available free of charge (no access code required) and includes the following resources:

  • Videos: A new collection of online videos (referenced throughout the book) helps students visualize complex cellular and molecular structures and processes.
  • Online Quizzes: Two sets of online quiz questions are available for each chapter, both of which are assignable by the instructor.
  • Animations: Narrated animations help students better grasp key complex topics and processes.
  • Micrographs: Interactive versions of the many micrographs in the book, illustrating cellular structure.
  • Flashcards & Key Terms: A great way for students to learn and review the key terminology introduced in each chapter.
  • Chapter Summaries
  • Web Links
  • Complete glossary


For Instructors

The Instructor's Resource Library offers a variety of resources to aid instructors in course planning, lecture development, and student assessment, including:

  • Data Analysis Problems: New for the seventh edition, this set of over seventy problems presents students with real-world analysis exercises. Each problem is built around figures and data from specific published papers, and students are challenged to interpret the figures, analyze data, and explain methods and results. Complete answers and explanations are provided. Ideal for use as in-class exercises or as homework assignments.
  • Textbook Figures & Tables: All available as both high- and low-resolution JPEGs
  • PowerPoint Resources
  • Animations: The entire collection of animations from the Companion Website, for use in lecture
  • Supplemental Photos: Over 100 additional micrographs
  • Online Quiz Questions: Multiple-choice and free-response questions from the Companion Website, with answers and feedback
  • The complete Test File, in Microsoft Word and Diploma formats (see below for details)
  • Chapter Outlines and Key Terms
