    Book Summary

    Recipient of the CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title (OAT) Award.

    Molecular Biology: Structure and Dynamics of Genomes and Proteomes illustrates the essential principles behind the transmission and expression of genetic information at the level of DNA, RNA, and proteins.

    This textbook emphasizes the experimental basis of discovery and the most recent advances in the field while presenting a structural, mechanistic understanding of molecular biology that is rigorous, yet concise. The text is written for advanced undergraduate or graduate-level courses in molecular biology.

    Molecular Biology: Structure and Dynamics of Genomes and Proteomes is additionally supported by the Garland Science Learning System. This homework platform is designed to evaluate and improve student performance and allows instructors to select assignments on specific topics and review the performance of the entire class, as well as individual students, via the instructor dashboard. Students receive immediate feedback on their mastery of the topics, and will be better prepared for lectures and classroom discussions. The user-friendly system provides a convenient way to engage students while assessing progress. Performance data can be used to tailor classroom discussion, activities, and lectures to address students’ needs precisely and efficiently.

    A free trial for the Garland Science Learning System will be available to use during the Spring and Fall 2017 semesters. For more information and to sign up for access, visit http://garlandscience.rocketmix.com/.

    Features

      • Vivid illustrations convey step-by-step mechanisms and explain fundamental principles. The text and figures describe results from new techniques that allow insight into processes at the molecular level both in vitro and in vivo.

      • Chapter boxes present historic accounts, extended descriptions of methods, additional cell biology context, and medically-relevant material.

      • The flexible presentation of both essential and advanced material ensures the book can meet the needs of both upper-level undergraduate and early graduate-level audiences.

      • Each chapter ends with a list of key concepts and references for further reading.

    Reviews

      "The authors draw a seamless connection between the classical molecular and cell biology techniques and numerous recent advances…[Their] efforts toward inculcating a sense of history in every discovery and concept is nailed in every chapter."
      - The Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine, December 2016, Volume 89, Issue 4

    Garland Science Learning System

    The Garland Science Learning System
    offers high-quality homework and assessment content designed to complement our textbooks. It provides convenient tools for instructors to track the progress of the entire class, as well as individual students, and more precisely tailor lecture and discussion to student needs. Molecular Biology: Structure and Dynamics of Genomes and Proteomes features 11 tutorial modules in “beta” mode, covering key topics in the field of molecular biology, which correspond to eight chapters selected from across the book.  Finalized versions will launch ahead of the fall 2017 semester. The tutorials were created by Kristopher Koudelka, Point Loma Nazarene University.

    The Tutorials use engaging stories, important experimental examples, animations, and vibrant illustrations, to explore essential or difficult concepts.  Throughout every tutorial, there are recall and application questions with feedback loops to explain why an answer is correct or incorrect.  Student performance on all questions appears on the instructor dashboard. Recall Questions help students reflect on the concepts as they go, reviewing what was just covered. Application questions foster critical thinking by asking students to apply their understanding to a key problem. These questions are labeled as “assessment” and are automatically graded by the system.

    A free trial for the Garland Science Learning System will be available to use during Spring and Fall 2017. Please contact us at science@garland.com to sign up!
