Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is the perfect resource for any student without previous experience in the subject who needs to know its key principles and concepts - whether they are studying biology or biochemistry, biomedical science or nutrition. The book blends the fundamentals of molecular biology and biochemistry with the latest technological advances, including mass spectrometry, RNA interference, X-ray synchrotron radiation, the medical applications of single nucleotide polymorphisms, the development of pluripotent cells with stem cell potential, and the use of protein and DNA databases and their application to the study of disease-causing genes. It gives a contemporary, intellectually stimulating depiction of the field, while always maintaining a wonderful clarity, enriched by carefully layered explanations and vivid illustrations. Its scope, size and presentation make Biochemistry and Molecular Biology the ideal companion as you explore the subject for the first time.Online Resource Centre: The Online Resource Centre features: For registered adopters of the book: * Figures from the book available to download; * A new test bank of questions, with feedback keyed to the book, for use in formative and summative assessment For students: * A library of weblinks cited in the text; * A hyperlinked bibliography of literature articles cited in the text; * An extensive bank of multiple-choice questions for self-directed learning

Review:

Difficult concepts are beautifully and uniquely covered with simple analogies to encourage understanding. The discoveries in biochemistry and molecular biology in the last few years have been very exciting and this book is one of the few texts able to convey this excitement with its unique style. (Lynn Rogers, The University of Adelaide, Australia)

I feel it is one of the best in its class in terms of depth and level for students on multidisciplinary biology and biomedical science courses. I also very much appreciate the increasing emphasis on human examples. (Dr Alison Caswell, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK)

This is a well-written, accessible book, which should appeal to students during their first major encounter with biochemistry and molecular biology. Throughout the book, reference is made to health, disease and treatment, which should make the text more relevant and interesting to undergraduate students, especially those on medically-related courses. (Dr Caroline Owen, Kingston University, UK)

I liked the last edition but it looks as if this will be better. I see an obvious attempt to identify areas which students find difficult and a willingness to take on approaches which help students learn. The book seem to me to be written with its target audience always in mind. I particularly liked the way in which fundamental biological principles are never forgotten. This made my reading of the chapters quite stimulating. (Dr John Wright, University of East London, UK)
