Karp’s Cell and Molecular Biology: Concepts and Experiments 8th Edition Pdf Book Description:

For the past two decades, Dr. Gerald Karp has written Cell and Molecular Biology: Concepts and Experiments. During this time, he has maintained a consistent focus on combining rigor with accessibility, so that even students without prior training in cell biology, molecular biology, or biochemistry have been able to learn cell biology not just as a collection of facts but as a process of discovery. The value of this approach is that the lessons learned extend far beyond the field of cell biology, and provide a way for students to learn how science works, how new experiments can overturn previous dogmas, and how new techniques can lead to groundbreaking discovery. This approach makes cell biology come alive, After seven editions, Dr. Karp is ready to move on to other adventures. We are excited to take on the challenge of continuing Dr. Karp’s unique approach to teaching cell biology, while continuing to put students first. Our goal for this revision was to build upon Karp’s hallmark experimental approach by bringing in our own unique perspectives and harnessing today’s technology. With our new Experimental Walkthrough feature, available in WileyPLUS Learning Space, students can see first-hand how key experimental techniques are performed in the lab. These offer a mix of video, which show how researchers carry out experiments, and 3D animations that show a molecular-level view of how the experiments work. These Walkthroughs provide context and a visual explanation that helps make these important experimental techniques more concrete.

A solid understanding of quantitative concepts is becoming increasingly important within cell biology, but is an area that many students struggle with. To address this issue, we have also added another new video feature, called Quantitative Tutorials, to visually illustrate how to solve specific analytical questions at the end of each chapter. The Quantitative Tutorial provides an accessible, student‐friendly review of basic mathematical concepts used within the context of a biological problem, and will expand the available resources for quantitative and physical concepts within this 8th edition.We are made of cells. Cells make up our skin, our organs, and our muscles. The brain, the seat of our thoughts and desires, is made of cells. Our blood vessels teem with cells. Fertilization is no more or less than a joining of two separate cells to produce a single new cell, which then multiplies to produce the embryo. When we grow from a tiny embryo into a large adult, we do so by adding more and more cells. When we get sick, it is often because our cells have run amok. And when we grow old, it is because our cells gradually give up the ghost. After we die and are buried, soon the only remnants of our existence are bones, teeth, and hair, structures that were sculpted in life by the ceaseless activity of cells. Many medicines work by changing how cells behave, and in recent years cells themselves are being used as medicines to cure sick people. Because all living things are made of one or more cells, the origin of life corresponds to the origin of cells. Starting with this chapter, we will explore what cells are and how they work, themes that will be expanded throughout this book.
