Introduction to Organic and Biochemistry
Cengage Learning, Jan 8, 2009 - Science - 752 pages
This innovative split version of INTRODUCTION TO ORGANIC, AND BIOCHEMISTRY gives students a solid foundation of the chemistry of the human body, consistently demonstrating that a strong background in molecular structure and properties leads to better understanding of biochemical interactions. The strength of this book is its readability and its application to normal human biochemical pathways, as well as its discussion of biochemical conditions present in diseases. This textbook is identical to the longer book by this author called General, Organic, and Biochemistry with these exceptions: it contains fewer chapters and those chapters are numbered differently than they are in the longer book. OWL does not have a separate course (with the eBook or without eBook) for the shorter book, so links on this page to purchase access will take you to the longer book.
Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
