Overview

The "Gold Standard" in Biochemistry text books, Biochemistry 4e, is a modern classic that has been thoroughly revised. Don and Judy Voet explain biochemical concepts while offering a unified presentation of life and its variation through evolution. Incorporates both classical and current research to illustrate the historical source of much of our biochemical knowledge.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An opulent and expansive comprehensive textbook for students who have had the equivalent of one year of college chemistry and at least one semester of organic chemistry, as well as a one-year college course in general biology in which elementary biochemical concepts were discussed. This edition is updated throughout to keep pace with recent research advances, particularly in nucleic acid and protein structure. It also features an increased emphasis on human disease, more extensive use of molecular biological techniques, and striking new molecular graphics illustrations. Annual supplements are available on a subscription basis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR booknews.com
