Description

Karp’s 7th edition of Cell and Molecular Biology: Concepts and Experiments connects experimental material to key concepts of Cell Biology. The text offers streamlined information that reinforces a connection of key concepts to experimentation. Though the use paired art, and new science illustrations, readers benefit from a visual representation of experimental connections. Animations and video clips are tied to key illustrations with practice questions to provide a variety of ways to experience a key concept. Furthermore, the text offers 3 tiers of question types in the areas of Experimental, Clinical, and Critical Thinking. This new edition offers an appropriate balance of concepts and experimentation. Experimental detail is offered when it helps to reinforce the concept being explained. Numerous in text features help draw connections between concepts and experimentation.

New to This Edition

  The text has been completely updated to reflect the most recent advances in cellular and molecular biology.

"Cell Flix"

-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.
