Fundamentals of Biochemistry Upgrade Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This text uses a more brief and qualitative approach to present biochemistry with chemical rigor, focusing on the structures of biomolecules, chemical mechanisms, and evolutionary relationships. It is written to impart a sense of intellectual history of biochemistry, an understanding of the tools and approaches used to solve biochemical puzzles, and a hint of the excitement that accompanies new discoveries. This edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect the most recent advances in biochemistry, particularly in the areas of genomics and structural biology. A new chapter focuses on cytoskeletal and motor proteins, currently one of the most active areas of research in biochemistry.

Book News Annotation:

Donald Voet (U. of Pennsylvania) and Judith G. Voet (Swarthmore), two of this text's three authors (the third is Charlotte W. Pratt) already have under their belts a larger text, Biochemistry. The present text retains the philosophy of the earlier book, but it is less detailed and constitutes a re-vamped treatment of the subject both in organization and style. The material is organized to correspond with how the authors teach the course, but detailed division into sections and subsections allows instructors with other ideas to organize courses to their own tastes without apprehension that they've missed critical information. The included CD-ROM contains a variety of interactive three-dimensional molecular graphics displays and animations.
