Essential Biochemistry offers chemists a streamlined approach to the field, focusing on the chemistry behind the biology. The selective approach allows them to understand the main ideas without needing to memorize many specific details. The second edition offers the most up-to-date coverage, placing more emphasis on the coverage of molecular structure, laboratory techniques, and problem solving. It retains core topics of biochemistry, using real examples of chemical reactions and molecular structures. Integrated media also provides chemists with a review of difficult concepts along with molecular structure tutorials and interactive animations.
