About this book

For courses in cell biology. Widely praised for its strong biochemistry coverage, Becker's World of the Cell, Eighth Edition Technology Update provides a clear, up-to-date introduction to cell biology concepts, processes, and applications. Informed by many years of teaching the introductory cell biology course, the authors have added new emphasis on modern genetic/genomic/proteomic approaches to cell biology while using clear language to ensure that students comprehend the material. Becker's World of the Cell provides accessible and authoritative descriptions of all major principles, as well as unique scientific insights into visualization and applications of cell biology. Media icons within the text and figures call attention to an enhanced media selection – 350 up-to-date animations, videos, and activities – that helps students visualize concepts. MasteringBiology not included. Students, if MyMathLab is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MyMathLab should only be purchased when required by an instructor.

Becker's World of the Cell, Eighth Edition, Technology Update brings the power of MasteringBiology to Cell Biology for the first time. MasteringBiology is an online homework, tutorial and assessment system that delivers self-paced tutorials that provide individualized coaching, focus on your course objectives, and are responsive to each student's progress. The Mastering system helps instructors maximize class time with customizable, easy-to-assign, and automatically graded assessments that motivate students to learn outside of class and arrive prepared for lecture.
