Biochemistry 5th Ed - 5/e  

 

By Lubert Stryer, Jeremy M. Berg, John L. Tymoczko

 

 

'Nice updates, nice web resource. The organisation of some topics has improved (i.e. Glycolysis and Gluconeogenesis in the same chapter).' - Dr Lorenzo Frigerio, University of Warwick

'The integration of evolution makes it the most exciting and revolutionary biochemistry text to appear since 1970.' - James F. Koerner, University of Minnesota

'I really like the chemical and structural approach to describing the changes in the molecules and the energetics involved.' - Paul Craig, Rochester Institute of Technology
'Another fantastic book.' - Gunnar Hansson - Gothenburg University

'An excellent revision. I like the use of structures throughout.' - R C Ford - Manchester University

'Much improved - good cover of genetics and metabolism.' - A Nicolaou - Bradford University

'An excellent textbook which combines basic principles of biochemistry with clinical situations and pathophysiology.' - J M Land - Clinical National Hospital London

'A superby presented book - in keeping with the high standard of the previous editions. A must for all biochemistry students.' - R E Glass - Nottingham University

'An excellent textbook for students taking biochemistry. ' - P Maskrey - Northumbria University

:
With new co-authors Jeremy Berg and John Tymoczko, Biochemistry, Fifth Edition begins a new era of excellence, with expanded integration of evolution, more chemical and structural insights, and a web based media component created simultaneously with the text. Improved pedagogy includes: chapter-opening outlines, expanded end-of-chapter problem sets, new types of problems, and special icons highlighting evolutionary coverage, clinically relevant material, or related media content on the Web. Biochemistry also becomes the first text to fully reflect the revolution that has taken place in biomedical science in the past ten years, culminating in the human genome project. A key focus of the new edition is the unifying features of protein structure and function that have been revealed by the incredible progress in gene sequencing. All molecular diagrams have been recreated by Jeremy Berg for clearer and more consistent presentations of structure throughout, with the art programme being increased by nearly 20% over the previous edition. The new author team has also worked to maintain the book's defining feature: the characteristic clarity for which it has been known for decades.
