Biochemistry 9th Edition
This text is intended for students in any eld of science or engineering who want a one-semester introduction to biochemistry but who do not intend to be biochemistry majors. Our main goal in writing this book is to make biochemistry as clear and applied as possible and to familiarize science students with the major aspects of biochemistry. For students of biology, chemistry, physics, geology, nutrition, sports physiology, and agriculture, biochemistry impacts greatly on the content of their elds, especially in the areas of medicine and biotechnology.
For engineers, studying biochemistry is especially important for those who hope to enter a career in biomedical engineering or some form of biotechnology. Students who will use this text are at an intermediate level in their studies. A beginning biology course, general chemistry, and at least one semester of organic chemistry are assumed as preparation.
All textbooks evolve to meet the interests and needs of students and instructors and to include the most current information. Several changes mark this edition. Biochemistry Hot Topics These articles are now conveniently located within the relevant chapters. They highlight new breakthroughs and topics in the area of biochemistry such as CRISPR, Alzheimer’s disease, epigenetics, brown fat, andmore! Updated Coverage Each chapter in the text has been updated with the current developments and scientic ndings in the biochemistry eld.
New Design and Updated Art Illustrations throughout the text have been redrawn for improved consistency. In conjunction with the book’s updatedart program, a more contemporary design and color palette have been utilized. Further Reading An annotated bibliography is now provided in the Further Reading section at the end of each chapter, making these resources more easily accessible to the student.
