The Essential Cell Biology Media DVD-ROM, packaged with every copy of the book, can be purchased separately. It includes:
Essential Cell Biology Interactive
The Essential Cell Biology Interactive Media Player contains over 130 animations, videos, and molecular models. It also includes a cell explorer program that encourages students to investigate a set of high-resolution micrographs.
The quizzing feature, which is new to this edition, allows students to test themselves in basic reading comprehension of each chapter. It is accessed through the Essential Cell Biology Interactive media player.
The Movie Vault is an archive of movies from the media player in three handy formats: QuickTime®, MPEG, and iPod®.
The figures from the book have been pre-loaded into PowerPoint presentations. There is one presentation for each chapter, and the files are located in a folder on the DVD-ROM. The files are also available on Classwire.
The individual figures from the book are available in JPEG format. They are organized by chapter in folders on the DVD-ROM.
