This edition features a new author team, who have retained the much-praised clarity of previous editions, while adding a greater focus on biomedical issues and incorporating a discussion of recent developments in research. A new chapter on the general principles of nutrition emphasizes the key principles underlying complex metabolic pathways, enabling students to appreciate an integrated view of human metabolism and nutrition.
This book is designed to enable students to quickly review and assimilate large amounts of complex information through visual resources essential to mastery of difficult biochemical concepts. New features include a bonus online chapter on blood clotting.
This new edition reflects recent developments in stem cell research, cloning, and immunology, and offers revised coverage of major topics, such as Molecular Biology. Biochemical Connections demonstrate how biochemistry affects other fields, such as health and sports medicine.
This text is designed to help understand key concepts and appreciate the significant connections between chemistry, health, disease, and the treatment of disease. This text continues to strike a balance between theoretical and practical chemistry, while emphasizing material that is unique to health-related studies.
This book intends to include new research findings without making the book overwhelming to students. Considerable attention has been made to making the text and art useful to students learning biochemistry for the first time.
This book emphasises the importance of incisive experimental techniques as the engine that drives our increasing understanding of the molecular nature of life processes. This new edition has more of an emphasis upon biochemical reaction mechanisms in the enzymes and metabolism chapters.
This book challenges readers to better understand the chemistry behind the biological structure and reactions occurring in living systems. It addresses the advances in biochemistry, particularly in the areas of structural biology and Bioinformatics.
The latest edition of this book has an objective to strike a balance between presenting up-to-date advances with the need to make biochemistry as clear and engaging as possible for the student approaching the subject for the first time. There are new chapters on gene regulation and experimental techniques are updated and clarified.
