Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is perfectly suited to opening up this subject to the widest range of students, giving insights into this fascinating area with which everybiological and biomedical science student should be familiar. Biochemistry and Molecular Biology takes students from the fundamentals of cell biology and biochemistry to the latest advances in genomics and proteomics, maintaining a wonderful clarity, enriched by carefully layered explanations and vivid illustrations throughout. New Organisation The third edition has undergone substantial re-structuring to facilitate its use by students with little prior understanding of the subject area. New Pedagogy - Summaries at the end of each chapter which highlight the key concepts presented and aid revision. - Boxed applications illuminate the concepts being introduced, describing medical examples and health-related issues. - More problems at the end of each chapter.
