Experimental Walkthroughs

With the new Experimental Walkthroughs, 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.

Quantitative Tutorial Videos

The Quantitative Tutorial provides an accessible, student-friendly review of basic mathematical concepts used within the context of a biological problem, and expands upon the available resources for quantitative and physical concepts within this 8th edition

Accessible Approach

Janet Iwasa and Marshall Wallace convey how to get your students excited about Cell Biology by taking an experimental approach supported by quantitative tutorials.
