For one-semester or two-semester introductory courses in Biochemistry. May be taught out of departments of chemistry, biology, or biochemistry. Biochemistry departments may be in faculties of science or in medicine.This concise, introductory text focuses on the basic principles of biochemistry, filling the gap between the encyclopedic volumes and the cursory overview texts. The book has a well-deserved reputation for being the most accurate biochemistry textbook in the market. Widely praised in its previous edition for currency, and clarity of exposition, the new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect recent changes in this dynamic discipline.

H. Robert Horton. Dr. Horton, who received his Ph.D from the University of Missouri.in 1962, is William Neal Reynolds Professor Emeritus and Alumni Distinguished Professor Emeritus in the Department of Biochemistry at North Carolina State University, where he served on the faculty for over 30 years. Most of Professor Horton's research was in protein and enzyme mechanisms.
Laurence A. Moran. After earning his Ph.D from Princeton University in 1974, Professor Moran spent four years at the Universite de Geneve in Switzerland. He has been a member of the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Toronto since 1978, specializing in molecular biology and molecular evolution. His research findings on heat-shock genes have been published in many scholarly journals.
Raymond S. Ochs. Professor Ochs, who earned his Ph.D from Indiana University, is a Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at St. John's University. He is an expert on metabolic regulation and has edited a monograph on this topic―Ochs, R. S., Hanson, R. W., and Hall, J., eds. Metabolic Regulation (1985, Elsevier)―and authored and coauthored numerous research papers and reports.
J. David Rawn. Professor Rawn, who received his Ph.D from Ohio State University in 1971, has taught and done research in the Department of Chemistry at Towson State University for the past 25 years. He did not write chapters for Principles of Biochemistry, but his textbook Biochemistry (1989, Neil Patterson) served as a source of information and ideas concerning content and organization and the use of stereo images to illuminate molecular structures and conformational change.
K. Gray Scrimgeour. Professor Scrimgeour received his doctorate from the University of Washington in 1961 and has been a faculty member at the University of Toronto since 1967. He is the author of The Chemistry and Control of Enzymatic Reactions (1977, Academic Press), and his work on enzymatic systems has been published in more than 50 professional journal articles during the past 40 years. From 1984-1992, he was editor of the journal Biochemistry and Cell Biology.From the Back Cover:
Biology students need to be able to analyse data and produce high quality practical reports. These skills are essential for success in assessments, examinations and project work.
Asking Questions in Biology will help you to master the practical and data handling elements of your course, while teaching you a fundamental skill in scientific discovery.
Tried and tested with students, this unique text explains:
v Why asking the right questions is essential in any scientific enquiry
v How to design experiments and project work
v How to approach analysing data, using principles that apply with any statistical package
v How to present your results including figures and tables
v Self-test questions and answers
v An easy-to-use Quick Test Finder
v Key topics are illustrated with a wide range of examples from ecology and behaviour to toxicology and parasitology.
This second edition continues to provide an invaluable text for practical courses in biology. It is especially useful for courses that emphasise hypothesis testing and data analysis, and as a guide for students working on assessed projects.
Chris Barnard is Professor of Animal Behaviour and Francis Gilbert is Senior Lecturer in Ecology both at the University of Nottingham. Peter McGregor is Head of the Department of Animal Behaviour in the Zoological Institute at the University of Copenhagen.
