For courses in cell biology.
Widely praised for its strong biochemistry coverage, Becker’s World of the Cell, Eighth Edition, 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.
The Becker World of the Cell 8e 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.

Wayne M. Becker teaches cell biology at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. His interest in textbook writing grew out of notes, outlines, and problem sets that he assembled for his students, culminating in Energy and the Living Cell, a paperback text on bioenergetics published in 1977, and The World of the Cell, the first edition of which appeared in 1986. He earned all his degrees at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. All three degrees are in biochemistry, an orientation that is readily discernible in his textbooks. His research interests have been in plant molecular biology, focused specifically on the regulation of the expression of genes that encode enzymes of the photorespiratory pathway. His interests in teaching, learning, and research have taken him on sabbatical leaves at Harvard University, Edinburgh University, the University of Indonesia, the University of Puerto Rico, Canterbury University in Christchurch, New Zealand, and the Chinese University of Hong Kong. His honors include a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Chancellor's Award for Distinguished Teaching, and a Visiting Scholar Award from the Royal Society of London. Lewis J. Kleinsmith is a Professor of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental biology at the University of Michigan, where he has served on the faculty since receiving his Ph.D. from Rockefeller University in 1968. His teaching experiences have involved courses in introductory biology, cell biology, and cancer biology, and his research interests have included studies of growth control in cancer cells, the role of protein phosphorylation in eukaryotic gene regulation, and the control of gene expression during development. Among his numerous publications, he isthe author of Principles of Cell and Molecular Biology, first published in 1988, and several award-winning educational software programs. His honors include a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Henry Russell Award, a Michigan Distinguished Service Award, citations for outstanding teaching from the Michigan Students Association, a Thurnau Professorship, an NIH Plain Language Award, and a Best Curriculum Innovation Award from the EDUCOM Higher Education Software Awards Competition. Jeff Hardin received his Ph.D. in biophysics from the University of California, Berkeley, and pursued post-doctoral work at Duke University. In 1991 he joined the faculty of the Zoology Department at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where he is currently an associate professor. His research interests center on how the cells move and change the shape of the embryo. Dr. Hardin's teaching is enhanced by his extensive use of video-microscopy and his Web-based teaching materials, which are used on many campuses in the United States and other countries. As part of his interest in teaching biology, Dr. Hardin has been involved in several teaching initiatives, including being a founding member of the University of Wisconsin system-wide instructional technology initiative known as BioWeb. He is currently faculty director of the Biocore Curriculum, a four-semester honors biology sequence for undergraduates. His teaching awards include a Lily Teaching Fellowship and a National Science Foundation Young Investigator Award. Gregory Paul Bertoni, the newest member of the author team, has been active in teaching and research for over 20 years. He earned a Ph.D. in Cellular and Molecular Biology from the University ofWisconsin-Madison, where his teaching experiences included introductory and graduate-level biochemistry, sophomore cell biology, and plant physiology. He also helped to develop a new course entitled "Ways of Knowing" designed to introduce entering freshmen to the learning process itself. His published research includes studies in bacterial pathogenesis, plant-microbe interactions, and plant gene expression. He is currently teaching biology and medical microbiology at Columbus State Community College in Columbus, Ohio, where he has just been nominated for a Distinguished Teaching Award. In addition, Dr. Bertoni is a freelance scientific writer who has contributed to text- and web-based projects in biology, physics, and microbiology. He is also a science editor for The Plant Cell, a leading research journal in plant biology and molecular biology.
