No scientific discipline has experienced such explosive growth or attracted so much popular attention over the past several decades as the study of life at the molecular level. The most quantitative of biological sciences, biochemistry studies the chemical components of living matter; the reactions these components undergo; the energetic changes that accompany such reactions; and the organization, replication, and expression of genes.
Biochemistry: A Short Course introduces students to the fundamentals of this fascinating scientific discipline. Based on the authors’ years of experience teaching graduate, undergraduate, and professional courses, this comprehensive introduction caters to the specific needs of researchers and students who must familiarize themselves rapidly with core concepts, principles, and theories. Students are afforded a unique opportunity to arrive at a full understanding of important current and pending achievements in the field, without having to wade through extraneous technical details and lengthy theoretical discussions more appropriate to a lab manual or specialized text.
