Principles Of Cell Biology / Edition 1


  • Ten Principle-based chapters build on the foundation laid out in the first four chapters of the text, with heavy emphasis on linking concepts across multiple chapters.
  • New vocabulary terms are introduced gradually, after the concepts have been established, thereby de-emphasizing memorization of names.
  • Marginal boxes throughout each chapter include studying tips, clarifications of apparent contradictions, explanations of naming schemes, FAQ, and more.
  • Analogies are used throughout to clarify concepts and help students retain the material at hand.
  • Cellular metabolism, a topic that many student struggle with, is introduced and expanded upon in a very accessible way, providing a "big picture" approach to the material.
  • Provides extensive cross referencing between specific figures and sections of text in different chapters to emphasize that multiple topics are functionally, spatially, and temporally linked.
  • Concept Check questions, at the end of each section, test comprehension of the section, with answers provided at the end of the chapter.
  • End-of-chapter questions ask students to integrate material across chapter sections and across different chapters.
