We think you will find that the new edition remains faithful to the vision of its predecessors while embracing the tremendous advances made in biochemical research since the previous edition. As always, we’ve focused on communicating the fundamentals of the discipline, drawing in important findings and applications to keep students aware of the impact of biochemistry on their lives. For this edition, we have worked hard to provide a book that is thoroughly contemporary in its content, appearance, and teaching approach. Of course, we’ve updated the material and references throughout, to make sure the text truly represents the current state of the science. In addition, we incorporate a number of new boxes on applications, and have added striking new graphics and new problems drawing on real experimental data.
One area of the text that we have worked on extensively is the coverage of protein structure and function. In fact, we’ve already completed two new chapters for the Third Edition—one on the three-dimensional structure of proteins and one on protein function.

I've had to use 3 different biochemistry texts as an undergraduate and Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry was by far the most interesting, best written, and best laid out. I sold the other two texts back, but decided to keep Lehninger because I'm sure I'll be able to use it again someday.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

If you want to understand biochemistry, you have no other choice. Medical schools should never choose another text. Graduate Biochemistry departments already know. And Bioinformatics hopefulls and enthusiasts need to start here.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
