Fundamentals of Cell Biology book cover

Fundamentals of Cell Biology

CC BY-NC (Attribution NonCommercial)   English

Author(s): Lauren Dalton, Robin Young

Subject(s): Cellular biology (cytology)

Institution(s): University of British Columbia, Oregon State University

Publisher: Oregon State University

Last updated: 21/02/2024

This textbook is focused specifically on the principles and concepts of a foundational Cell Biology course. The book takes a more conceptual approach that highlights how scientists study cells, and how to analyze and interpret experimental results. Rather than focusing primarily on historical experiments that were key to our understanding of cells, the book explores a range of more modern experimental techniques so that students can begin to understand how cells are studied now, in the 21st century. The book includes over 200 newly created illustrations and animations, that were specifically designed for this book, as well as review questions at the end of each chapter, to help students explore and understand the material.

Institution(s): Oregon State University

Software engineering can help people create sustainable, extensible programs that solve problems people care about.

I won’t tell you how to be a software engineer; you’ll learn that over time by doing it. Instead, this book is about software engineering methods: Ways people achieve specific objectives in software engineering—that can save your project. My hope is that, after reading this book (or parts of it), you’ll feel better equipped for software engineering.

The first edition of the handbook can be found at the GitHub repository.

Romeo and Juliet book cover

Romeo and Juliet

CC BY-NC-SA (Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike)   English

Author(s): Rebecca Olson

Subject(s): Literary studies: plays and playwrights

Publisher: Oregon State University

Last updated: 03/02/2024

This edition of Romeo and Juliet was edited by students for students. We believe that reliably edited versions of the play should be available for free online. But we wanted ours to be easy to get in other ways as well. The editors—Oregon State University students who remember, far better than their professors, what it was like to read the play for the first time—carefully considered every pronoun, punctuation mark, and footnote. Our goal: to make a friendly, confidence-building edition that supported classroom activities at the high school and college level.
