A best-selling core textbook for medical students taking medical biochemistry, Marks' Basic Medical Biochemistry links biochemical concepts to physiology and pathophysiology, using hypothetical patient vignettes to illustrate core concepts. Completely updated to include full-color art, expanded clinical notes, and bulleted end-of-chapter summaries, the revised Third Edition helps medical students understand the importance of the patient and bridges the gap between biochemistry, physiology, and clinical care.

A new companion Website will offer the fully searchable online text, an interactive question bank with 250 multiple-choice questions, animations depicting key biochemical processes, self-contained summaries of patients described in the book, and a comprehensive list of disorders discussed in the text, with relevant Website links. An image bank, containing all the images in the text, will be available to faculty.
