As the amount of information in biology expands dramatically, it becomes increasingly important for textbooks to distill the vast amount of scientific knowledge into concise principles and enduring concepts.As with previous editions, Molecular Biology of the Cell, Sixth Edition accomplishes this goal with clear writing and beautiful illustrations. The Sixth Edition has been extensively revised and updated with the latest research in the field of cell biology, and it provides an exceptional framework for teaching and learning. The entire illustration program has been greatly enhanced.Protein structures better illustrate structure–function relationships, icons are simpler and more consistent within and between chapters, and micrographs have been refreshed and updated with newer, clearer, or better images. As a new feature, each chapter now contains intriguing openended questions highlighting “What We Don’t Know,” introducing students to challenging areas of future research. Updated end-of-chapter problems reflect new research discussed in the text, and these problems have been expanded to all chapters by adding questions on developmental biology, tissues and stem cells, pathogens, and the immune system.

The Mader/Windelspecht Story:
Biology is a comprehensive introductory biology textbook for non-majors or mixed-majors courses that covers biology in a traditional order from the structure and function of the cell to the organization of the biosphere. The book, which centers on the evolution and diversity of organisms, is appropriate for a one- or two-semester course.
The eleventh edition is the epitome of Mader's expertise: Its concise, precise writing uses an economy of words to present the material as succinctly and clearly as possible, thereby enabling students -- even non-majors -- to understand the concepts without necessarily asking the instructor to explain further. Sylvia Mader represents one of the icons of science education. Her dedication to her students, coupled with her clear, concise writing style has benefited the education of thousands of students over the past three decades. Dr. Michael’s Windelspecht: The integration of text and the digital world are now complete with the addition of Michael’s Windelspecht’s expertise in the development of digital learning assets. For over ten years, Michael served as the Introductory Biology Coordinator at Appalachian State University, in Boone NC where he directed a program that enrolls over 4,500 non-science majors annually. Michael has acted as the leading architect in the design of the Mader media content for McGraw-Hill's ConnectPlus and LearnSmart. These assets allow instructors to easily design interactive tutorial materials, enhance presentations in both the online and traditional environments, and assess the learning objectives and outcomes of your course. Users who purchase Connect Plus receive access to the full online ebook version of the textbook.
