Description of Fundamentals of Biochemistry Life at the Molecular Level

Biochemistry is no longer a specialty subject but is part of the core of  knowledge for modern biologists and chemists. In addition, familiarity with biochemical principles has become an increasingly valuable component of medical education. In revising Fundamentals of Biochemistry textbook, we asked, “Can we provide students with a solid foundation in biochemistry, along with the problem-solving skills to use what they know? We concluded that it is more important than ever to meet the expectations of a standard biochemistry curriculum, to connect biological chemistry to its chemical roots, and to explore the ways that biochemistry can explain human health and disease. We also wanted to provide students with opportunities to develop the practical skills that they will need to meet the scientific and clinical challenges of the future. Fundamentals of Biochemistry revised version of Fundamentals of Biochemistry continues to focus on basic principles while taking advantage of new tools for fostering student understanding.
Because we believe that students learn through constant questioning, Fundamentals of Biochemistry 5th edition features expanded problem sets, additional questions within the text, and extensive online resources for assessment. As in previous editions, we have strived to provide our students with a textbook that is complete, clearly written, and relevant.

New for the Fifth Edition of Fundamentals of Biochemistry

The fifth edition of Fundamentals of Biochemistry includes significant changes and updates to the contents. In recognition of the tremendous advances in biochemistry, we have added new information about prion diseases, trans fats, membrane transporters, signal transduction pathways, mitochondrial respiratory complexes, photosynthesis, nitrogen fixation, nucleotide synthesis, chromatin structure, and the machinery of DNA replication, transcription, and protein synthesis. New experimental approaches for studying complex systems are introduced, including next generation DNA sequencing techniques, cryo-electron microscopy, Metabolomics, genome editing with the CRISPR–Cas9 system, and the role of non-coding RNAs in gene regulation. Notes on a variety of human diseases and pharmacological effectors have been expanded to reflect recent research findings.
