On File TM is our award-winning collection of visual reference materials. Each On File TM depicts complex subjects in a way that both engages and informs students and researchers. These flexible resources fit into every curriculum. -- Instructors can use the pages for handouts, overheads, posters, and testing. -- Students can use them as quick sources of information, to reference curriculum topics, or to supplement their essays and reports. -- On Files TM are available in either binder or electronic format. -- All of the maps, charts, diagrams, and illustrations are designed in clean black-and-white graphics and are printed on sturdy pages. -- Pages are housed in durable three-ring binders. -- Replacement pages are available if they are lost or stolen. Interdisciplinary Coverage Enhances High School Science Curricula Genetics and Cell Biology On File TM provides over 250 images on all aspects of cell biology and genetics, including hard-to-find material on history, theory, and application. Designed with the most current pedagogical requirements in mind, this On File TM features an interdisciplinary focus that includes the history of how the field has developed. Science-Technology-Society (STS) material offers students information central to the way the subject is currently being taught. Coverage is divided into three main sections: -- Major Techniques and Tools, including the microscope and genetic engineering -- Cells, including the main types of cells, their parts, and their evolution; structures and functions; and the process of cell division -- Inheritance, including pioneering experiments; DNA and current DNA analytical techniques, including gene therapy and theories of evolution.
