Summary

Biochemistry: The Molecular Basis of Life is an intermediate, one-semester text written for students on degree pathways in Chemistry, Biology and other Health and Life Sciences. Aimed at students who have a previous knowledge of organic chemistry, the text focuses on essential biochemicalprinciples that underpin the modern life sciences, and offers the most balanced coverage of chemistry and biology of any text on the market. Biochemistry: The Molecular Basis of Life provides a complete view of the living state by explaining the functional and structural properties of biomoleculesin the context of their biochemical reactions and impact on living organisms. It also places strong emphasis on critical thinking to help students diagnose real biochemical problems, and integrates fascinating applications of Biochemistry to the fields of Health, Agriculture, Engineering andForensics in order to relate concept to experience and show students the relevance of their learning.
