EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

BIOLOGY, Seventh Edition by Solomon, Berg, and Martin continues to be the best-liked and most student-friendly introductory majors text available. In this edition the authors have created a learning system that makes the chapters easier to navigate and provides a variety of ways for students to learn the material. "Learning Objectives" are now strategically placed throughout the chapter following major headings, and there are review questions at the ends of these major sections. "Chapter Summaries" are now organized around the "Learning Objectives" as well, making it easier for students to return to the place in the book that can help them work through the end-of-chapter material. Icons throughout the chapter direct students to the BiologyNow CD and tells them what they will find there. BiologyNow, the new Student CD-ROM for BIOLOGY Seventh Edition, is also based on these "Learning Objectives" to further reinforce the text's concepts. The BiologyNow CD, fully integrated with the Seventh Edition text, provides access to diagnostic pre-tests for each chapter. It also automatically generates customized learning plans for students, directing students to the information in the book, ancillaries and media program that will help them master specific concepts. Post-tests allow students to assess their progress as well. And now Brooks/Cole offers vMentor, a FREE online live tutoring service. Students can ask questions, get answers, and they don't need to set up appointments! For instructors, a Multimedia Manager provides the text art in PowerPoint form. Instructors also receive an Instructor's Guide, ExamView Electronic Testing and WebTutor course management options. Solomon, Berg, and Martin have gone beyond presenting facts for memorization -- they have created a well-designed pedagogical system through their use and reuse of chapter "Learning Objectives," which is supported by an unbelievable package of materials for instructors and students.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Biology is the study of living organisms and vital processes. Encompassing cell biology, molecular biology, microbiology, and more, biology is one of the most basic branches of science and is a required course in most high schools. From the discovery of penicillin to the theory of evolution to the demonstration of sex-linked inheritance, Biology profiles 10 individuals who beat the odds and pioneered their way to a permanent place in the scientific community. Each chapter contains relevant information on the scientist's childhood, research, discoveries, and lasting contributions to the field and concludes with a chronology and a list of print and Internet references specific to that individual.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The Third Edition of Molecular Biology: Genes to Proteins is a comprehensive guide through the basic molecular processes and genetic phenomena of both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Designed for undergraduate and first year graduate students, this multi-purpose text has been completely updated to include many important advances made in the field of molecular biology. Maintaining the original structure-function approach evident in the first two editions of David Freifelder's classic text, this book provides students with an accessible overview of molecular biology before moving into more in-depth discussions. Broken into six sections, topics are strategically arranged to cover basic information that is necessary in understanding the more advanced topics focused on in later sections. Section 1 and 2, Protein Structure and Function and Nucleic Acids and Nucleoproteins provide the information required to Understand The chemical basis of molecular biology. Section 3, Genetics and Virology provides information required to Understand The biological basis of molecular biology. Section 4, DNA Metabolism explores DNA replication, repair, and recombination in bacteria, eukaryotes and archaeons. Section 5, RNA Synthesis and Processing examines mechanisms that bacteria, eukaryotes, and archaeons use to synthesize RNA, regulate RNA syntheses, and process transcripts to form mature RNA molecules. Section 6, Protein Synthesis describes the structure and function of the bacterial protein synthetic machinery in bacteria, eukaryotes and archaeons.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Authors Cecie Starr, Christine A. Evers, and Lisa Starr partnered with the National Geographic Society to develop this edition of BIOLOGY: CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS. Renowned for its clear writing style and unparalleled visuals, this trendsetting book applies exclusive National Geographic content to engage students and emphasize that biology is an ongoing endeavor carried out by a diverse community of scientists. Each chapter explores core concepts aligned with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) initiative “Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education” to help students master associated learning objectives. By continuously challenging students to question what they read and to apply the concepts they learn, the text allows our citizens and future policy-makers to hone critical thinking skills as they gain scientific literacy.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This well-researched book provides a valuable instructional framework for high school biology teachers as they tackle five particularly challenging concepts in their classrooms, meiosis, photosynthesis, natural selection, proteins and genes, and environmental systems and human impact. The author counsels educators first to identify students' prior conceptions, especially misconceptions, related to the concept being taught, then to select teaching strategies that best dispel the misunderstandings and promote the greatest student learning. The book is not a prescribred set of lesson plans. Rather it presents a framework for lesson planning, shares appropriate approaches for developing student understanding, and provides opportunities to reflect and apply those approached to the five hard-to-teach topics. More than 300 teacher resources are listed.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Designed for a one or two semester non-majors course in introductory biology taught at most two and four-year colleges. This course typically fulfills a general education requirement, and rather than emphasizing mastery of technical topics, it focuses on the understanding of biological ideas and concepts, how they relate to real life, and appreciating the scientific methods and thought processes. Given the authors' work in and dedication to science education, this text's writing style, pedagogy, and integrated support package are all based on classroom-tested teaching strategies and learning theory. The result is a learning program that enhances the effectiveness & efficiency of the teaching and learning experience in the introductory biology course like no other before it.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

For life to be understood and disease to become manageable, the wealth of postgenomic data now needs to be made dynamic. This development requires systems biology, integrating computational models for cells and organisms in health and disease; quantitative experiments (high-throughput, genome-wide, living cell, in silico); and new concepts and principles concerning interactions. This book defines the new field of systems biology and discusses the most efficient experimental and computational strategies. The benefits for industry, such as the new network-based drug-target design validation, and testing, are also presented.
