December 2012, ©2013
The text has been completely updated to reflect the most recent advances in cellular and molecular biology.
-Video clips and animations that are tied to paired art in the text. An icon invites students to further their understanding by going to WileyPLUS and viewing a related video, or animation and then answering a set of test your knowledge questions.
"Question Pathways" Includes 3 tiers of question types: experimental, critical and animation questions. Instructors have asked for more question types involving experimentation, clinical applications and critical thinking. This is the area where students need more practice. Karp 6e builds on its reputation for experimental coverage by providing experiment based questions in WileyPlus. These critical thinking questions are written by Sarah Chavez of Washington University , and they address the experimental discussions, methods and pathways found in every chapter. Instructors can now offer more practice or assignments dealing with experimentation in WileyPlus.
Offers an appropriate balance of concepts and
Experimental detail is offered when it helps to reinforce the concept being explained.
Strong illustration program includes stepped-out art to break down complex processes into steps.
Illustrations are paired with micrographs to help students compare the real (micrograph) with the ideal (illustration).
Human aspects of cell biology are integral to this text, with “Human Perspective” essays throughout.
