Publisher Comments:

Learn BIOCHEMISTRY without stressing out your brain CELLS

Trying to understand the chemical processes of living organisms but having trouble metabolizing the complex concepts? Here's your lifeline! Biochemistry Demystified helps synthesize your understanding of this important topic.

You'll start with a review of basic chemical concepts and a look at cell structures and cell division. Next, you'll study carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids, nucleotides, and enzymes. Glycolysis, the citric acid cycle, oxidative phosphorylation, and the control of chemical processes round out the coverage. Hundreds of examples and illustrations make it easy to understand the material, and end-of-chapter questions and a final exam help reinforce learning.

This fast and easy guide offers:

  • Numerous figures to illustrate key concepts
  • Details on DNA and RNA
  • Coverage of hormones and neurotransmitters
  • A chapter on analytical techniques and bioinformatics
  • A time-saving approach to performing better on an exam or at work

Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Biochemistry Demystified is your key to mastering this vital life sciences subject.

Book News Annotation:

The author of Biotechnology Demystified introduces biochemistry to students in the life sciences via a well-pruned path through the subject's complexity. Walker (PhD) demystifies the organization of the cell; forces that drive chemical reactions; such essentials to life as nucleic acids; and bioinformatics (analyzes of data relating to genomes). This self-teaching guide includes chapter review quizzes and a final exam with an answer key, and appended material on the structures of key biomolecules.
