Overview

Discover how the latest developments in biotechnology and genomics directly affect your life with this best-selling biochemistry text. This new edition reflects recent developments in stem cell research, cloning, and immunology, and offers revised coverage of major topics, such as Molecular Biology. Known for its logical organization and appropriate depth of coverage, BIOCHEMISTRY, 7th Edition, balances scientific detail with readability that's ideal for those studying biochemistry for the first time. A unique magazine insert, "Hot Topics in Biochemistry," introduces the latest advances in the field. State-of-the art visuals throughout the book help clarify concepts, while "Biochemical Connections" demonstrate how biochemistry affects other fields, such as health and sports medicine New in-text questions help you master key concepts of biochemistry, while end-of-chapter problem sets grouped by problem types help you master problem-solving skills.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This text for a one-semester introduction is intended for students in any field of science or engineering who do not intend to become biochemistry majors. A beginning biology course, general chemistry, and at least one semester of organic chemistry are assumed as preparation. This fourth edition features expanded special interest boxes on new topics such as prions and genetic keys to cancer, plus increased chapter exercises, expanded coverage of nutrition, and two new chapters on protein purification and characterization and nucleic acid biotechnology techniques. The color art program has been further expanded so that chemical equations and structures receive more visual emphasis. Campbell teaches chemistry at Mount Holyoke University. Farrell teaches biochemistry at Colorado State University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Product Details

Meet the Author

Mary K. Campbell is Professor Emeritus of chemistry at Mount Holyoke College, where she taught biochemistry, general chemistry, and physical chemistry, as well as advised undergraduates working on biochemical research projects. Her avid interest in writing led to the publication of many highly successful editions of this textbook. Originally from Philadelphia, Dr. Campbell received her Ph.D. from Indiana University and completed postdoctoral work in biophysical chemistry at Johns Hopkins University. Her areas of interest include researching the physical chemistry of biomolecules, specifically, spectroscopic studies of protein-nucleic acid interactions. She is also coauthor with Shawn Farrell on BIOCHEMISTRY, 7e (Cengage Learning, Brooks/Cole).

Shawn O. Farrell, a native of Northern California, received his B.S. in biochemistry from University of California, Davis, studying carbohydrate metabolism. He completed his Ph.D. in biochemistry at Michigan State University, where he focused on the study of fatty acid metabolism. Dr. Farrell became interested in biochemistry while in college, as it was relevant to his passion for bicycle racing. He raced competitively for 15 years and now officiates bicycle races worldwide. He has taught biochemistry lecture and laboratory courses at Colorado State University for 16 years and now works for USCycling. Professor Farrell has written scientific journal articles about specific research projects and about laboratory teaching, as well as articles for sports publications, such as "Salmon, Trout, and Steelheader" magazine. He is co-author with Mary Campbell on BIOCHEMISTRY, 7e (Cengage Learning/Brooks Cole).
