This Third Edition has been revised and updated to reflect significant advances in biochemistry and molecular biology since publication of the Second Edition in 1983. The text is clearly written and carefully organized to accommodate students from a variety of disciplines including biology, zoology, botany, biochemistry, allied health, and other life sciences. The text focuses on fundamental principles of biochemistry, using physiological examples and experimental results to clarify and reinforce concepts. This edition includes two completely new chapters--Recombinant DNA Research and The Immune System--as well as thorough revisions of all chapters on genetics, molecular biology, and proteins. Of the 521 illustrations, five are completely new for this edition, including several spectacular drawings by Irving Geis of gene transcription, translation, and protein synthesis.
