Synopses & Reviews
Thomas M. Devlin's Textbook of Biochemistry with Clinical Correlations presents the biochemistry of mammalian cells, relates events at a cellular level to the subsequent physiological processes in the whole animal, and cites examples of human diseases derived from aberrant biochemical processes. The organization and content are tied together to provide students with the complete picture of biochemistry and how it relates to humans. Loaded with new material and chapters and brimming with detailed, full-color illustrations that clearly explain associated concepts, this sixth edition is an indispensable tool for students and professionals in the medical or health sciences.
ENHANCE THE DEVLIN LEARNING EXPERIENCE with Wiley PLUS…
Wiley PLUS is a powerful online tool that provides instructors with an integrated suite of teaching and learning resources in one, easy-to-use website.
Wiley PLUS is organized around the essential activities you perform in class:
PREPARE & PRESENT: Create class presentations using a wealth of Wiley-provided resources— such as an online version of the textbook, PowerPoint® slides, and interactive simulations— making your preparation time more efficient. You may easily adapt, customize, and add to this content to meet the needs of your course.
CREATE ASSIGNMENTS: Automate the assigning and grading of homework or quizzes by using Wiley-provided question banks, or by writing your own. Student results will be automatically graded and recorded in your gradebook. Wiley PLUS can link homework problems to the relevant section of the online text, providing students with context sensitive help.
TRACK STUDENT PROGRESS: Keeptrack of your students’ progress via an instructor’ s gradebook, which allows you to analyze individual and overall class results to determine their progress and level of understanding.
ADMINISTER YOUR COURSE: Wiley PLUS can easily be integrated with another course management system, gradebook, or other resource you are using in your class, providing you with the flexibility to build your course, your way.

About the Author
"This textbook is a well used standard…appreciated by professionals." (E-STREAMS
, September 2007)
"This is an excellent teaching volume, which could readily be used not only be undergraduates and graduate students but also by fellows in clinical chemistry training programs." (Clinical Chemistry, October 2006)
"Recommended as a primary teaching text in Biochemistry courses: noted for its depth and organization, well-written and grand in scope, the chapters moving at a perfect pace to give the student a lasting lesson in the biochemical processes." (Electric Review, September/October 2006)
"...comprehensive and...appropriately updated. It should continue to help medical students see the relevance of biochemistry to medicine, which will only increase during their future careers. (Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, May/June 2006)
