This textbook is intended for a diverse audience that ranges from chemistry majors to students in any of the life sciences. The logical organization (discussion of molecular structure immediately followed by the role it plays in metabolism) leads students through the complex world of biochemistry while an impressive art program helps to guide them through up-to-date concepts. Of special interest are the new Biochemical Methods boxes in the text, PowerPoint slides for instructors, and animated and annotated Chime structures of biomolecules in the OLC.

Review:

"This is an excellent text for a one-semester biochemistry course. I'm delighted and thrilled by this revision and its coverage of genomics, proteomics, and macromolecular crowding. The illustrations are very good at helping students grasp key themes, the boxes provide necessary depth, and the end-of-chapter questions are admirable in solidifying concepts. I highly recommend this text." --Holly Huffman, Arizona State University

"The writing in McKee is clear, concise and easy to follow for the non-expert. The text does an excellent job in offering an up-to-date view of biochemistry, and the balance between chemistry and biology is especially good." --Andrew Shiemke, West Virginia University

"The language and writing style are excellent and exceed those of other survey texts. The end-of-chapter exercises are also nicely orchestrated, beginning with relatively simple problems, gradually escalating to more challenging exercises. The authors offer an excellent balance between Chemistry and Biology. In this respect, it is superior to other survey texts. It is not simply a text on molecular biology, but is also one that offers a chemical basis." --Anthony Toste, Missouri State University
