Introduction

In preparing the supplements package for Molecular Cell Biology, we have drawn on our collective experience with the instruction of cellular and molecular biology at almost every level taught, both undergraduate and graduate, at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Together, we have written the end-of-chapter questions for the textbook, the self-test questions resident on the companion CD-ROM and Web site, the review questions and more challenging data analysis questions for the new study guide/problems book, Working with Molecular Cell Biology: A Study Companion, and the test bank questions that parallel the questions found in the study companion. We’ve worked to produce a package that is not only extremely useful to students and instructors but also closely integrated with the goals of text, and with each individual supplement.

Special thanks to our families for their support and encouragement. Muriel Lederman extends a special thanks to Jill Sible and Bruce Turner.

For the Instructor

Print and Computer Test Banks NEW

Brian Storrie, Muriel Lederman, Eric A. Wong, Richard Walker, and Glenda Gillaspy, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.

Print Test Bank: 0-7167-3601-2; Computer Test Bank CD-ROM (Windows/Macintosh hybrid) 0-7167-3603-9

Realizing that instructors would appreciate an occasional inspiration when writing tests, we’ve chosen to add a test bank to our instructor’s materials. Questions parallel those posed in both the Study Companion and the end-of-chapter review—the same concept or principle is asked in different ways. Questions are also posed in a number of different formats: short-answer, essay, and multiple choice. The electronic version of the test bank allows instructors to edit and rearrange the questions, or add their own questions.

In addition, instructors can visit the password-protected Online Instructor Test Bank on the Molecular Cell Biology Web Site Companion to access favorite test questions submitted by their peers, or post their own questions.

Instructor’s Resource CD-ROM NEW

275 full-color figures from the text, optimized for classroom projection, in one volume. Available free to qualified adopters.

Instructor’s Solutions Manual NEW

Brian Storrie, Muriel Lederman, Eric A. Wong, Richard Walker, and Glenda Gillaspy, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. 0-7176-3752-3

Contains answers for all end-of-chapter questions. Also includes a convenient print version of the User’s Guide for the Instructor’s Resource CD-ROM.

For the Student

Molecular Cell Biology 4.0 CD-ROM Companion NEW

(hybrid format for Windows and Macintosh)

Packaged with every copy of the textbook:

Animations authored by Paul Matsudaira, Arnold Berk, S. Lawrence Zipursky, James Darnell, and Harvey Lodish, with Tanya Awabdy.

With contributions from: David Marcey, California Lutheran University; Brian Storrie, Muriel Lederman, Eric A. Wong, Richard Walker, and Glenda Gillaspy, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University; Lisa Rezende, Harvard Medical School; Ruth Alscher, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.

Visualization of cell and molecular processes helps students better understand the relationship between structure, function, and process. In addition to the book animations, the CD also features several valuable visual supplements:

  • Videos of cell processes using cutting-edge techniques that vividly illustrate the dynamic nature of the cell;
  • Interactive macromolecular biology tutorials by David Marcey, to help students better understand the relationship between structure and function in cell and molecular biology;
  • Illustrated, printable essays on classic experiments in molecular and cell biology which treat the investigative side of classic groundbreaking experiments by exploring the process of asking questions and devising tests.

To help students put cell and molecular processes in context, the CD also features a visual “Cell Navigation” interface. Clicking on structures and organelles brings up animations, videos, and other resources pertaining to that cellular feature.

An interactive review tutorial also resides on the CD; additionally, for students intending graduate study, we provide a timed MCAT/GRE prep exam referenced to the text.

Molecular Cell Biology Web Site Companion: NEW

The companion Web site to the text provides students with a bridge to the world of working cell and molecular biologists. Updated links to Web sites referenced in the text, plus suggestions for how to explore topics in-depth using Internet resources, are just some of the features of the site.

We’ve also included valuable enrichment resources to bring students to the real world of molecular cell biology:

  • Working with the Literature —selected scientific papers on topics covered in the text, with questions based on the data and methods presented, to help students navigate though current scientific literature and better understand the experimental process;
  • Classic Experiments essays which treat the investigative side of classic groundbreaking experiments by exploring the process of asking questions and devising tests;
  • Analyzing Experiments questions test students’ ability to apply concepts and understand data and experiments;
  • Integrative Biology Topics presents printable and hypertext optional chapters on subjects related to molecular and cell biology, such as immunology, developmental biology, among others, for instructors who wish to cover these topics in their courses, and for students with an interest in the applications of cell and molecular biology.
  • An online self-test section with text and study references, to reinforce key ps and concepts;
  • Links to the Macromolecular Tutorial, plus a molecular viewer and modeler, to help students better understand the relationship between structure and function in Cell and Molecular Biology.

Working with Molecular Cell Biology: A Study Companion

Brian Storrie, Muriel Lederman, Eric A. Wong, Richard Walker, and Glenda Gillaspy, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. 0-7167-3604-7

The study companion has been reorganized to mirror the text in-chapter organization, providing greater flexibility for instructors who prefer to teach topics in alternative sequences. Students can easily find the questions in the study companion which correspond to the material they’re covering in class.The study companion has also been tailored to the needs of students at many levels. The first part of each chapter, “Reviewing Concepts,” serves as a study and review resource, posing questions on key principles and concepts. Students are encouraged to draw together the text, CD-ROM, and their own lecture notes to answer the questions. The second part of the chapter, “Analyzing Experiments,” allows students to apply the knowledge they’ve gained to experimental situations, and to work with data sets. Since Molecular Cell Biology is used by students at many levels, we have coded each “Analyzing Experiments” question by a bullet system that denotes the level of difficulty: one bullet is appropriate for sophomore or junior level students, two bullets for junior or senior level, and three for advanced students. Worked-out answers for all questions are included, as well as answers for every other end-of-chapter question.

To make study more productive, we’ve also chosen to pose the sorts of questions students are most likely to encounter on tests—questions in the study companion parallel those in the Test Bank in ps of content, and the principles and concepts tested.

To the Student

Biology is a living science, in which changing knowledge continually generates fresh perspectives and fresh opportunities for productive impacts on our society. Our goal in this book is to provide you with the experimental basis of our current understanding, and to give you the tools to participate in the development of our future knowledge. We have provided 15 new text and visual aids to help you through each chapter.

As scientists and educators, we know that some processes, life cycles, and techniques are easier to comprehend if you can see them in motion. We have chosen these subjects to animate.

It’s easy to navigate your way from the book to the CD-ROM. In addition to the list of resources provided in the Media Connections section at the beginning of each chapter, we have tabbed those figures directly related to animations. We also list all the animations, videos, and macromolecular models on the endpapers of the book.

By agreement with the publisher, this book is accessible by the search feature, but cannot be browsed.
