Molecular Cell Biology, Sixth Edition 2008

New to This Edition

New Co-Authors
Two new authors—visionary researchers as well as charismatic teachers—bring their considerable strengths to the Sixth Edition:
• Anthony Bretscher of Cornell University is known for identifying and characterizing new components of the actin cytoskeleton and elucidating their biological functions in relation to cell polarity and membrane traffic.
• Hidde Ploegh of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has made major contributions to our understanding of immune system behavior, particularly in regard to the various tactics that viruses employ to evade our immune system responses and the ways our immune system responds.
 
Increased Clarity and Accessibility
In the Sixth Edition, the authors have intensified their commitment to accessibility, balancing their coverage of the latest scientific developments with students’ need for clear explanations of the fundamentals. In this edition:
• New concept-based heads outline key principles 
• Improved chapter overviews give students the big picture and a solid foundation for what is to come

Integrated Media featuring New Podcasts
New eBook fully integrates the complete contents of the text and its interactive media in a format that features a variety of helpful study tools. The eBook is easily accessible on any Internet-connected computer via a standard Web browser.
Podcasts narrated by the authors give students a deeper understanding of key figures in the text and a sense of the thrill of discovery.
 
Layered PowerPoint files of every figure, optimized for projection, which instructors can edit or project section by section, allowing students to follow underlying concepts.
 
Emphasis on Experiments
Molecular Cell Biology, Sixth Ediion provides a clear introduction to the techniques and experiments of scientists past and present, showing how important 
discoveries led to the formation of the field’s key concepts. This experimental approach is evident not only in the text and figures, but also in the following:
• Students answer a research problem by looking at real experimental data in the thoroughly revised Analyze the Data problem at the end of each chapter.
Medical Relevance
The authors include medically relevant examples in every chapter, demonstrating the connection between basic research in molecular cell biology and human health and disease.
New Chapters
In addition to incorporating these and other exciting new developments, the Sixth Edition of Molecular Cell Biology also includes three new chapters:
• The Molecular Cell Biology of Development [22], presenting the fundamentals of development from fertilization through pattern formation, with increased focus on mammalian development.
• Nerve Cells [23], providing unified coverage of the cell biology of these specialized cells, including the latest advances in axonal pathfinding and sensory reception.
• Immunology [24], a capstone chapter applying principles of molecular cell biology to the vertebrate immune system.
 
New Organization
In consultation with over 100 professors of cell biology from around the country, the authors have revised the table of contents to unite related topics and mirror the organization of most courses.

First Day of Class Materials

GIVE YOUR STUDENTS AN EDGE!

At W.H. Freeman & Co., we know the college experience can be very demanding for your students. They are making decisions every day about what to study, how to study, and what tools to use to succeed. However, not all students understand the importance of the course materials that you selected and are electing not to purchase anything. As a result, their course preparedness and grades are suffering.

You can change that! Students look to you for information and guidance on what tools will help them succeed in the course. To help you communicate the importance of these materials, we have created a suite of tools for your use in the first days of class. These tools should help you communicate the value of learning, the importance of your course materials, and in turn, enhance student’s classroom experience and performance. 

STRATEGIES FOR THE FIRST DAYS OF CLASS:

Explain your choice: You spent time considering texts, supplements, media, and on-line solutions that would mirror your course goals and teaching style. So, spend a few minutes telling your students why these tools will help them succeed in your course.

Show the book: Show the book, the package, and any materials you will be using. Be specific about how you expect them to use the book in class.

“It is required.” It is as simple as that! Telling your students they need the books, they will benefit from the books, and that you will assign, quiz, or test FROM the book will encourage them to get involved with the course materials.

Use our materials: We have created a suite of materials: syllabus inserts, PPT slides, handouts, and videos – that you can include in your first course to communicate the importance of course materials to your student. Need something more? Just ask us!

Ask for help: We are here to help you. Contact your local representative for aFirst Days of Class presentation and they will gladly come in to spend a few minutes with your students to demonstrate web registration, a new piece of technology, a new study aid, a customized textbook, i<clicker student response system…whatever you might need. Help is just a click away! Find my sales rep.

TOOLS FOR YOUR FIRST DAYS OF CLASS:

Syllabus Insert: Click here to get a brief paragraph to insert into your course syllabus on the book and supplements you have assigned. Remember, students look to you for advice!
